A&E's 'Streets Of Compton' Documentary Plans To Take Viewers Deep Into The Cali City

A&E Network serves viewers the real deal on the streets of Compton.

A&E Network will take viewers down the streets of Compton to explore the top gang affiliations in Los Angeles. Residents living in the Compton area sit down with the producers to discuss their neighborhood, known to be one of the most crime driven areas in California.

The show will depict the true story behind the rise of gangs, mainly the Crips and the Bloods, and how they grew to dominate the area.

Southern Los Angeles is home to many in hip-hop including Kendrick Lamar, The Game, N.W.A, and more who grew up in its rough, suburban streets.

N.W.A released the movie Straight Outta Compton, which showcased the hip-hop group on their rise to fame. The rap group faced a lot of controversy in L.A., with their explicit music that was considered to be gangsta rap at the time.

The Game, who'll be featured in the doc, says he'll always remember the streets that raised him, and made him into the man he's today. "People have a hard time understanding how hard it is for any kid to avoid gang affiliation in Compton,’’ said the rapper. The Game has been documenting his life throughout his music for decades, namely on his The Documentary and The Documentary 2 albums.

Former residents Paul Rodriguez, Richard Williams, Anthony Anderson, Niecy Nash, The Game, current and former Compton politicians, and former gang members will make you walk through the streets of Compton.

Watch the three-hour documentary, airing in two parts, beginning tonight at 9 p.m. on A&E, and listen out for exclusive music from The Game's latest album, The Streets of Compton, on tonight's episode.

Donald Trump Refuses To Apologize To The Exonerated Five

Despite Ava DuVernay's successful series, When They See Us – which tells the story of the Central Park Five case from the perspective of the now-grown men – Donald Trump still refuses to apologize for his 1989 call to execute the five teenagers.

"You have people on both sides of that," Trump told reporters outside the White House on Tuesday (June 18) when asked if he would apologize to the exonerated men. "They admitted their guilt."

The president also noted Linda Fairstein's part in the case, stating that she and others still believe the men are guilty. "If you look at Linda Fairstein and look at some of the prosecutors," he continued. "They think that the city should never have settled that case. So we’ll leave it at that."

As previously reported, Trump took out an $85,000 ad in New York City newspapers in 1989 calling for the reinstatement of the death penalty in New York following the arrest of five teens in connection to the rape of a white jogger in Central Park.

All five teens were convicted based on coerced confessions and little evidence. They were exonerated in 2002 due to DNA evidence, which proved their innocence, and testimony from the real rapist.

When They See Us renewed attention surrounding the case when it debuted in May 2019. The series touched on Trump's involvement, noting how he incited the community to turn against the five boys.

"The statements that he made and the ads that he took out, he took out two weeks after they were arrested, before their trial, calling for the deaths of the minors,” DuVernay told People of Trump's past actions.

Holy shit -- years after DNA evidence exonerated them, Trump suggests the Central Park 5 are guilty and refuses to apologize for saying they should be executed.
