With the success of N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton, there may be another movie exploring the ’90s rap game in the West coast.
The biopic grossed $60 million over its opening weekend, more than doubling its production budget of $29 million.
TDP member Daz Dillinger told TMZ there will be a sequel exploring the rise of Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Warren G. and other West Coast legends. Suge Knight would be included in such a film since Death Row Records played an ultimate role.
The film is yet-to-be confirmed but it would be titled “Dogg Pound 4 Life” which would star Dr. Dre’s son, Curtis Young, as Dre.
In the 90’s, N.W.A put rap on the mainstream which influenced the rise of numerous West Coast artists, such as Snoop, Tupac, Warren G, Snoops cousin Daz, Kurupt and more.
Dr. Dre recently released his first proper album after 16 years, “Compton,” which brought in $60 million in its opening weekend.
Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, producers of Straight Outta Compton, won’t have any part of the alleged sequel, though Cube had given the project “his stamp of approval,” according to TMZ.
Wonder why the title “Dogg Pound 4 Life?”
