Man, I want this to be good so bad I’m almost scared to watch it.
The classic rock analogy with hip hop stars is interesting as well. I’ve found it fascinating how many rappers who were truly controversial (Ice T and Ice Cube especially) have basically turned into mellow, middle-aged dudes.
I’d love to know more about that transformation. Straight Outta Compton shed some light on Cube, mainly that he was just an absurdly talented (and pretty level-headed) guy who was going to find a way to be successful. But, I’m sure there are a lot of other stories out there.
