This Recreation Of N.W.A’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Video In Grand Theft Auto V Is Totally Brilliant

With new Dr. Dre album ‘Compton’ coming out after a 16 year wait and N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton set for UK release this Friday (August 21), it’s been an undeniably Grade A month for fans of the iconic rap troupe.

If you still haven’t had your fill, however, then check out this version of the video for 1988’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’ made exclusively using footage from the video game Grand Theft Auto V. Made by YouTube user @AnimalRobot, it uses GTA5’s Rockstar Editor to create a gaming-style version of the video, complete with an avatar that looks a lot like Ice Cube.

Though the remake doesn’t match the original scene for scene, the pairing of GTA’s hustling action and N.W.A’s confrontational style actually make for a pretty brilliant match.
