Follow the world's most dangerous group, N.W.A. as they forge their anger and inner-city frustrations into the most potent weapon imaginable: their music. In Straight Outta Compton: Director's Cut fans can follow N.W.A.'s electrifying lyrics and unique sound, which introduced a truth that no one had heard before and exposed life in the hood igniting a social revolution that still reverberates today.

The culturally relevant and explosively entertaining biopic is coming to Blu-ray and DVD 11th January 2016 from Universal Pictures (UK). Directed by F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job, Friday), Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of five young rebels from South Central Los Angeles who, armed with only their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent, stood up to the authorities attempting to keep them down.

Following the rise of the world's most notorious group, Straight Outta Compton features breakout stars O'Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube), Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre), Jason Mitchell (the late Eazy-E), Neil Brown, Jr. (DJ Yella) and Aldis Hodge (MC Ren) as members of N.W.A. and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Paul Giamatti (HBO's John Adams) as the group's manager.

As the essential companion piece to the home entertainment release, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) will release Straight Outta Compton: The Soundtrack. This new collection is the official soundtrack featuring key cuts from the film including "Quiet On Tha Set", "Gangsta Gangsta", "Express Yourself" and the explosive title track. In addition, Straight Outta Compton: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released separately featuring music composed and conducted by Joseph Trapanese, and produced by Bryan Lawson and Joseph Trapanese. Both collections will release worldwide on all digital and CD formats on 8th January 2016, with Straight Outta Compton: The Soundtrack being pressed as a 2-LP vinyl set.
