OG Offspring Might Play Their Papas for N.W.A. Biopic

Arabian Prince. Easy-E. Ice Cube. DJ Yella. MC Ren. Dr. Dre. Wanna resolve things in a bloodier way? Then just study a tape of N.W.A.

Truer words have been spoken, but not many. Now, in a strange video where TMZ bombards Dre with questions, the musician offers up that they’re possibly thinking about doing a movie about Niggaz With Attitude and perhaps, just maybe, contemplating hiring their children to play the young rappers that made up the group from straight outta Compton.

There’s no doubt that the history of the group is littered with drama, violence and art, so this might actually make a hell of a movie if the right hands got a grip around it. But will it happen? At this point, it’s doubtful. It seems like the kind of wishful thinking that gets talked about fondly but never acted upon. It’s the filmmaking version of when you and your friends say that you should open a bar.

But why not? There’s no telling whether the sons of Easy-E and Ice Cube should be acting, but there’s a ton of great story here and a killer soundtrack. Shouldn’t that be enough to make this thing a solid concept? Movies have been made for less.
