Editorial: ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Sequel To Be Titled ‘Welcome To Death Row’

Video: Global Trailer For '#StraightOuttaCompton'

Straight Outta Compton” proved to be a smash after generating over $130 million in the box office. Hollywood is preparing to release an official sequel chronicling the rise of Death Row Records titled “Welcome To Death Row”, according to KollegeKidd.com!!!

The film would be based on the book & documentary under the same titled by S. Leigh Savidge, who received a story and co-executive producer credit on “Straight Outta Compton”.

This film would focus on the era after N.W.A. that saw the rise of artists Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, & Tupac.

No music rights are attached to the film, which could complicate a studio deal, but Savidge brought in N.W.A’s music rights after he & Alan Wenkus began writing “Compton” in 2002. Savidge & Wenkus persuaded Eazy-E’s widow & rights holder Tomica Woods-Wright to sign on & set up the project at New Line (Universal eventually picked up the movie in 2014).
