Straight Outta Compton shows the rise of seminal gangsta rap group N.W.A.

Ice Cube - a.k.a O'Shea Jackson - and his son who plays him in the film, O'Shea Jackson Jr., sat down with The Feed to talk the controversy surrounding the new film.

In particular, why the film which has Ice Cube and Dr Dre as producers, doesn't reference Dr Dre's history of violent attacks on women

"People are welcome to do their own version of the N.W.A story. There's been a thousand movies about Elvis, we can tolerate a few more N.W.A movies," Cube told SBS.

"That being said, and that put to the side, this is a situation where you could pick and choose what you want to put in the movie. There are things that are bigger that aren't in the movie."
