Biopics are becoming a more frequent event than before. From the recent Lifetime Aaliyah flick Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B to VH1’s CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, artists’ life stories are becoming cinematic muses at a rapid rate.
With the upcoming release of N.W.A.’s Straight Outta Compton this Friday (Aug. 14), the West Coast rap squad will be bringing their fiery bars and f*ck-tha-police mentality to the big screen to the delight of many hip-hop heads. And if that’s not enough reason to celebrate biopic SZN, BET will also be rolling out a New Edition ‘pic for a TV movie in 2016.
To keep the momentum going, VIBE wrangled up a list of other acts who also deserve a biographic film in theaters. Lights, camera, action!
