Reports say the Pulp Fiction director will work on the rap group's comeback promo...
According to press reports, Tarantino has been approached to produce the video for ‘Chin Check’, the first single from a reformed NWA, though no one from NWA’s office could confirm or deny the stories at present. The new line-up of NWA features original members Dr Dre, Ice Cube and MC Ren. Snoop Dogg will stand in for the late Eazy-E.
‘Chin Check’ is included on the soundtrack of Ice Cube‘s new film ‘Next Friday’. The band are also working on a full album, which Dr Dre previously told nme.com would be called ‘Not These Niggas Again’.
As a director, Tarantino is infamous for his uncompromising approach to on-screen violence. He started his career in 1992, directing the critically acclaimed ‘Reservoir Dogs’, and within two years he became one of the most famous directors in the world with his next film ‘Pulp Fiction’. ‘Pulp Fiction’ won a string of awards, including the coveted Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
