Inside the World Premiere of Straight Outta Compton

You know you’ve really made it when Snoop Dogg wears a t-shirt with your face on it

Snoop Dogg broke out his N.W.A. t-shirt for last night’s world premiere of Straight Outta Compton at the Microsoft Theatre L.A. Live. The film about N.W.A’s origins, their breakthrough album “Straight Outta Compton,” and the rap group’s eventual break-up drew everyone from Berry Gordy to Wesley Snipes. Security was beefed up a bit for the event in light of the recent tragic shootings at theaters in Lafayette, Louisiana and Nashville, Tennessee (there were extra metal detectors and LAPD officers on hand), but it all went smoothly, from the red carpet to after-party on the L.A. Live event deck. Check out the pictures below.
