It looks like the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton has been breaking all types of records since it hit the theaters over the summer!

The movie based on the legendary rap group from South Central, L.A. has now become the highest grossed movie by an African-American director in FILM HISTORY. The movie recently surpassed the $160.1 million dollar mark since it has been in theaters.

I’m sure the director F. Gary Gray is more than happy with what he was able to accomplish with the successful biopic. This has definitely put him on the map as one of the most accomplished black directors in Hollywood!
