The Straight Outta Compton movie, which depicts Ice Cube’s life along with the members of NWA, is making some serious noise right now in the movie theaters. Dr. Dre’s ex-girlfriend/baby mother Michel’le recently had a sit-down interview with VladTV where she got into detail about her feelings in regards to the movie and the fact she was left out of the NWA biopic. “Why would [Dr.] Dre put me in it?” the songstress asked. “I mean cause if they start from where they start from – I was just a quiet girlfriend who got beat up and told to shut up,” she brutally revealed. However, she did say she’ll “absolutely” go see the movie when it gets released.

Of that number, 276k were physical album sales, while the remainder come from streaming services and single sales. Also notable on the Billboard 200 this week is the sparked interest in Kendrick Lamar and N.W.A. since the release of both Dre’s album and the Straight Outta Compton film. Kendrick’s To Pimp A Butterfly saw a surge in sales this week and jumped up to the number 29 spot with another 12.5k in sales, while N.W.A. continues to jump up the charts with their 1988 release, Straight Outta Compton. In anticipation of the film, the album returned to the charts three weeks ago at #173. Since then, it jumped to 97, and now this week appears at the number 30 spot. With the movie having just come out this past Friday, it’s likely the album will be even higher on next week’s chart. Pretty dope! In the meantime, check out the full top 10 for this week below.
