On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, we discuss the upcoming N.W.A biopic/hagiography, Straight Outta Compton!  Will it be any good?  Will it offer fans the untold story behind Hip-Hop’s most dangerous group?  Is the integrity of the project automatically compromised by the direct involvement of Ice Cube and Dr. Dre?  Does F. Gary Gray’s track record suggest that he can handle a film of this magnitude?  Has Notorious set the bar for such a film?  What of the two Tupac biopics that are currently in the works?  Should John Singleton be telling Tupac’s life story?  Will the finished product be something more than just shameless hero worship?  Is Hip-Hop even old enough to have its heroes and icons immortalized in such a manner?

We’ll also be talking about the mysterious new rapper known as Your Old Droog!  Is he Nas in disguise?  Has Queensbridge’s favorite son created yet another alias for himself?  Why is Nas taking so long to speak out on this issue?  Is it an industry wide conspiracy to hide the true identity of this wunderkind?  Are those who claim to have “debunked” this myth actually in on the joke?  If it really isn’t Nas, should that fact negate Droog’s considerable skills?  Are such hoaxes good or bad for Hip-Hop?  Are they mere gimmickry, or cheap publicity stunts?  Are they a fun way to keep fans interested and on their toes
