Ice Cube and Dr. Dre’s biopic “Straight Outta Compton” opens in less than a week and the creators are using every last second to promote their movie.The film chronicles the formation of the group that would change rap in 90s- N.W.A. The movie focuses on three of the most successful members Dr. Dre, Eazy-E and Ice Cube and gives us a look at why each member made decisions to join or leave the group. Expectations are high for the movie and Dre and Ice Cube are still aiming higher. To get more people revved up for the premiere, Beats by Dre decided to try something different and actually quite genius to promote the film. To commemorate the upcoming N.W.A, movie Dre released a #straightouttasomewhere meme generator to let you plug in your home city or state. This is how it started out.
Good idea, right? Well, from cities and states, the memes started showing more state of mind than homestate…people started to migrate to other things like sports and life circumstances and snaps…
And now, #straightouttasomewhere is whatever the creator decides it is. And there are some hilarious minds at work out there. Here are TRN’s Six Favorite #straightouttasomewhere memes.
And of course, our number favorite #straightouttasomewhere meme—
