Biopics are inherently difficult to pull off. How do you give an accurate and unbiased video representation of real life events without looking cheesy and staged? See what Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and the director have to say about it in HBO's First Look.

The new N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton is right around the corner, and from what we can tell, it's going to be something quite special. The movie will follow the hip hop super group through the twists and turns of their rise to fame, showing how the tough living environment and the social and political barriers they faced helped materialize their message and lay the bricks for the immense cultural impact they left in their wake.

The biopic will be out in theaters on August 14, and Dr. Dre's album Compton will be released today.

Watch the First Look below.
