Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella made up one of the most important rap acts of all time, but if you've seen the new biopic, Straight Outta Compton, you know they all had very strong individual personalities.
With the upcoming N.W.A. biopic coming out on Friday, we're testing your knowledge on the veteran gangsta rap crew. N.W.A. is responsible for basically creating a new division within rap music, gangsta rap, while also leading the movement on the West Coast.
With the anticipated film about N.W.A, "Straight Outta Compton," hitting theatres on August 14th, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and the actors who play them grace the cover of the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter.
Unfortunately, a fair amount of talented hip-hop artists have passed away over the years. There's no easy way around it, but fame and fortune sometimes take the ultimate toll on an individual.

Eazy-E founded Ruthless Records with NWA manager Jerry heller in 1986. The two worked together quite closely, and Ellis recently revealed in a radio interview, that he once had to talk him out of killing Death Row records CEO Suge Knight.
It's hard to believe that last week marked the 18th anniversary of Eazy-E's untimely death.
