In a new interview with comedian Hannibal Buress, Chance The Rapper reveals that he auditioned for the role of Dr. Dre in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic.
At this point, the N.W.A. biopic, "Straight Outta Compton", is pretty much under wraps. An extended trailer was just released this week, with actor Corey Hawkins playing the all-important role of Dr. Dre. Generally, the cast is pretty low-profile, with Ice Cube's son, O'Shea Jackson Jr., being the only instantly-recognizable name in the group of actors playing the five members. We knew that Eazy-E's son also auditioned, but now we've learned that an even bigger name tried out for the movie.
