According to reports, Cube revealed the must-see footage during an overseas concert.
Australian N.W.A. fans were treated to a recent preview of the upcoming biopic, Straight Outta Compton, during a recent Ice Cube concert.

Over the summer, a shooting went down around the N.W.A. biopic’s production set.
We’re told the gunmen were NOT targeting the crew — but since they were setting up outside the courthouse the bullets came dangerously close. One nearby civilian was hit, and collapsed next to the set … but survived. The L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. tells us the shooting is under investigation. They have not yet determined if it was gang-related. (TMZ)
Recently, Cube promised personal feelings had nothing to do with late rapper Eazy-E‘s son not portraying his father.
“He’s an up-and-coming actor trying to do it but we needed somebody who was a little more polished to play Eazy, because he goes through a lot in his life. He goes from selling dope in Compton to fighting for his life in a hospital bed. So we needed to find an actor with a lot of range. And we just couldn’t use just anybody. We gave him a shot, and it just didn’t work out.” (KS 107.5)
