MC Ren is not happy with Universal Pictures right now. The The N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton will hit theaters on Aug 14th. In the most recent trailer release of the film, MC Ren was left out completely. The Compton native took to social media to share his thoughts on the company.
The tweets from MC Ren got right to the point “Man fuck these bitches at universal pictures leaving me out the movie trailers tryin to rewrite history.” said Ren. “When you have bitches work on a hip hop film that don't know shit about hip hop this is what happens. How the hell u leave me out after all the work I put into them records. It's disrespectful to me, my family and most of all my FANS.”
MC Ren has plenty of reason to be upset for his lack of placement in the trailer of a movie focused around his musical career. From a business standpoint, the lack of MC Ren in the trailer makes the movie seem less authentic. His role in the group N.W.A. was pivotal. Lets hope that Universal steps up the plate, acknowledges his importance to the film and movement and drops another trailer with all members in the group.
