Straight Outta Compton dropped on August 8, 1988 and shook the world.
I remember being at a basketball court, when one of the guys popped in the cassette tape in his boom box.
What is that?
“It’s N.W.A., the world’s most dangerous group”, he replied.
We didn’t play basketball that day.
10 young guys sat on the hot asphalt and listened to 5 West Coast rappers murder the tracks. Who were those five talented rappers?
- MC Ren
- Ice Cube
- DJ Yella
- Dr. Dre
I was in the 7th grade. I had never heard so much profanity, in my life!
But I loved it.
West Coast hip hop was on the map and the pioneer’s of the Gangsta rap era had arrived. Everyone was talking about Eazy-E and Ruthless Records. We couldn’t get enough.
Do you know how much grass I cut towards the end of that summer to buy Raiders and Kings hats? I saved up for an entire month and cut 26 yards at $10 a piece to buy a Raiders Starter jacket.
I wasn’t even gonna be able to wear the damn thing until the end of October. It’s hot as hell in Georgia up unto Halloween… LOL.
I wanted to be part of what was going on socially in junior high and in my hood. This is the same thing going on right now.
27 years later, I want to be part of what is going on with N.W.A., except this time it’s larger than my neighborhood or school.
Straight Outta Compton Memes, A Soundtrack Album, and A Movie?
The day of August 7th 2015, Andre blessed the ears of millions once again. “Compton” the album soundtrack released. I couldn’t wait to download it.
I launched Apple iTunes, grabbed my Beats by Dre headphones, sat and listened.
We have been waiting for 16 years since “The Cronic 2001” dropped in 1999. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing through my premium headphones once again.
The sound was BIG.
The music was mixed, WELL.
The artist, old and new, kill the tracks.
Straight up hits, like…
- All In A Days Work (feat. Anderson .Paak & Marsha Ambrosius)
- Deep Water (feat. Kendrick Lamar, Justus & Anderson .Paak)
- For the Love of Money (feat. Jill Scott, Jon Connor & Anderson .Paak)
- Darkside/Gone (feat. King Mez, Marsha Ambrosius & Kendrick Lamar)
Are you f*@cking kidding me?
This is just a few of the bangers! I don’t think I need to mention that Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, Eminem or The Game are on tracks too.
Dr. Dre has nothing to prove to the world of music.
For those wondering what happened to the “Detox” album, he cleared that up by simply stating…
I didn’t like it. It wasn’t good. The record, it just wasn’t good. … I worked my ass off on it, and I don’t think I did a good enough job.
The new music produced by Andre Romelle Young has surely prepared me to see the Straight Outta Compton movie. When August 14, 2015 arrives, I will be squarely placed in front of a big screen movie theater.
Popcorn and Classic Coke on deck.
I’m sure there are several stories I didn’t know about N.W.A., and I am eagerly awaiting that information.
I’m sure controversy, violence, hustle and money will be be at the forefront.
It’s been awhile since this gangsta rap group has been on the minds of people in such a large volume. The internet has been a ghost town for Compton California’s original 5 member gangster rap group.
But, not anymore.
Millions are liking, commenting and sharing everything about the West Coast 5 known as “Niggaz with Attitude.”
Millions Partake In The Straight Outta Compton Memes
Social media exploded with Straight Outta Compton Memes within minutes of Dr. Dre dropping the “Compton” album.
I spent at least an hour scrolling through my Twitter and Instagram timelines laughing at what people posted.
Some of the pics were hilarious.
Other images were a bit disturbing, like the Bobbi Kristina oxygen meme.
Sometimes the Internet can go a bit far.
It’s NOT that serious.
I enjoy a good laugh but we gotta know where to draw the line people. Speaking of drawing the line. Now is a good time to lineup my list of memes for you.
I know time is precious, so I put together 13 of the best #straightouttacompton memes I came across.
I hope you enjoy.
13 Straight Outta Compton Memes
1. Katt Williams, Straight Outta Perms
Man, when you get arrested and don’t have your hairstylist on deck before the mugshot it’s rough. Katt Williams should have learned from the first go around that the camera is not playing games.
2. Bruce “Caitlyn Jenner”, Straight Outta Testicles
Oh, boy. I could say so many things about this pic but I will leave it up to your wild imagination. Just hit me up on Twitter @powerofpublish so I can get a good laugh.
3. Lebron James, Straight Outta Hairline
Sometimes Lebron’s hairline looks okay. This image was NOT one of those times. That joint is off and on again. One year I tuned in to the Miami Heat games just to see what it was gonna do, before and after the game…LOL.
4. Kobe Bryant, Straight Outta Teammates
Kobe, you actually got a free pass on this particular meme. The Internet could have actually reached back to that Eagle, Colorado case. Could you imagine how bad it would have been for you to see your timeline flooded with… “Straight Outta Some…”
You Feel ME!!
5. Ray J, Chris Humphries, Reggie Bush & Kanye West, Straight Outta Kim Kardashian
Kim, just when you thought that Ray J tape conversation had died down.
You get hit with a collage of dudes that have had the chance to smash. Poor little “North West”. I don’t know how this little girl is gonna deal with this in the future.
Just in case she comes across this post, I wanna say, hold ya’ head up!
6. Bill Cosby, Straight Outta Pills
This just won’t go away. I don’t know what the truth is. Here is one thing one thing though.
Myself along with millions of others will still watch the Cosby Show.
Is it still on Nick at Night?
7. Ronda Rousey, Straight Outta Competition
So, I read that after the Ronda Rousey beat the hell out of Bethe Correia in 34 seconds, her total time in the ring as a professional was less than 17-minutes.
You mean to tell me that this super woman has whooped errbody she faced, and it has taken less than 20-miutes.
So, let me get this right, I can cook some grits and before they are done she done kicked ass and arm barred 12 chicks into submission?
8. Denzel Washington, Straight Outta Newports
You can’t show up to a Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao fight looking like this. Didn’t you know that it was being viewed by millions of people? Don’t you know that even cellphones take good pictures today?
Lord forbid you get in front of a photographer with a Mirrorless Camera. #GotEem
You had this one coming!
9. Meek Mill, Straight Outta Responses
Maybe it was an exposure tactic.
You are already dating Nicki Minaj, so why go at Drake for publicity? Well, if it’s exposure you were looking for my dude, you got it. Not sure what this is doing for you bank account though.
10. Jamie Foxx, Straight Outta Tune
Umm… You can’t sing the National Anthem at a world event and be out of tune. This Sh*t just ain’t gonna cut it.
Jamie explained what happened but the Internet doesn’t care. It’s hard being a celebrity at times.
11. Jay Z & Solange, Straight Outta Da Elevator
Tell me you saw this!
Solange attacks Jay-Z in an elevator and connects about 3 times. Look at Beyonce’s face coming out.
Is she happy or pissed off? LMAO!
12. Derrick Rose, Straight Outta Knees
My grandma has better knees than Derrick Rose, and she wears Dr. Scholl’s inside a pair of orthopedic shoes.
Adidas pledged a $185 million dollar deal over 13 years with this dude. The least he can do is play a FULL NBA season in the damn shoes.
13. Tom Brady, Straight Outta Air
Tom, you sneaky little devil. You knew those footballs didn’t have the right amount of air in them. You didn’t fool me. I didn’t believe any of the words you were saying, I knew better.
You play with BALLS all the time.
How many memes was I gonna post?
I thought about listing 50.
Then I came to my damn senses.
13 will be just fine. I said to myself, I’ll pick out the ones I think are really funny and have them @powerofpublish me on Twitter.
All of these memes had me weak in front of my computer. There were literally hundreds of them. I couldn’t curate them all. That would have taken me days.
I’m sure you will see more surface when the movie drops. One thing I know about the Internet, it NEVER sleeps.
Speaking of sleep.
