The rapper and music mogul co-produced the box office success Straight Outta Compton, a biopic about his group N.W.A. that is receiving praise for its illustration of police harassment against black men.

But critics have also called out the film for ignoring allegations and criminal charges that Dre physically abused women.

UPDATE 5:03 PM EST: Universal has denied that a sequel is in the works. A spokesperson with the studio said:

"At this time there are no plans for a Straight Outta Compton sequel."

———————–

Straight Outta Compton has been making a killing at the box office, achieving both critical and commercial success after its opening weekend!

The focus of the film will center around Tha Dogg Pound Gangstaz' music, but will also include gang violence and its impact on the rap industry.

Dr. Dre's son Curtis Young is said to take over the role of his dad for the upcoming film — a role that went to Corey Hawkins in Compton. As for the casting of Snoop and Ice Cube, it doesn't look like actors from Compton will reprise their roles.

Since the formation Dr. Dre's Death Row Records will be a huge part of this story, co-founder Suge Knight will be included. Though the producers won't be working directly with him since he is serving jail time after being charged with murder.

Are YOU excited for this Straight Outta Compton sequel?

Meek Mill bizarrely tried to take on Drake in a old fashioned rap beef over whether or not the Canadian entertainer used ghostwriters on his songs. Well, Kendrick Lamar has tossed his hat into the ring now too!

Suge Knight, Dr. Dre, And Ice Cube Are All Being Sued For Wrongful Death By Terry Carter's Family

Things just do not get better for Suge Knight.

Not only is the 50-year-old facing murder as well as attempted murder charges, he's also being sued by Terry Carter's family for running him over that fateful night.

But Suge isn't the only one named in the wrongful death lawsuit. Dr. Dre and Ice Cube have also been called out in the case.

Terry's wife and children filed the lawsuit and are claiming both producers of Straight Outta Compton hired known gang members to protect the set and shoots in gang-infested neighborhoods.

The case is also claiming some of the gang members started the drama and threatened the rapper, which lead to his decision to drive through the parking lot recklessly and eventually running over Carter.

Carter's family is also suing the location where it happened. They're claiming Tam's Burgers often experience violent crimes in their parking lot so they should've had security to prevent things from happening.

Sad.

Terry's family is seeking unspecified damages in their lawsuit.
