“Straight Outta Compton,” a movie chronicling the rise of Los Angeles rap group N.W.A, premieres Friday. The title is also the name of the group’s most famous album, released in 1988.
The film is being heavily promoted. An ad for it even appeared during last week’s Republican presidential debate on Fox News Channel.
The release is prompting a lot of sports memes, some hitting home in Indianapolis.

This one has nothing to do with Indiana sports, but it’s just too good to pass up.
