After nearly five years, Straight Outta Compton finally has a release date.

Universal announced in a statement on Wednesday that the N.W.A. biopic centered around the rise of hip-hop’s most infamous rap group will hit theaters August 14, 2015. Original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre also tweeted the first official photo featuring the cast which includes Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre), Jason Mitchell (Eazy-E) and O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube). The O’Shea casting is a major victory for Ice Cube who had been hoping that the actor, who is also his son, would land the role.

The parts of MC Ren and DJ Yella have yet to be filled. F. Gary Gray is set to direct the film.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
