Hollywood’s not done cashing in on the ‘hood — a “Straight Outta Compton” sequel, of sorts, is in the works featuring the rise of Snoop Dogg, Tupac and other West Coast rap legends.
Dogg Pound vet Daz tells TMZ the movie will pick up where N.W.A. left off — following the careers of Snoop, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Daz and Warren G. We’re told the title is “Dogg Pound 4 Life.”
Tha DPG’s music will be the focus, but Daz says the follow-up also won’t whitewash gang violence and its impact on the rap industry.
As for casting — we’re told Dr. Dre’s son, Curtis Young, will take over that role. No decision yet on who will play Snoop and Ice Cube … but it won’t be the same actors from ‘Compton.’ Dre and Cube won’t be producing, but Daz says Cube’s given his stamp of approval.
