Straight Outta Compton was such a breakout hit that we're not surprised someone wants to cash in with a sequel!
With or without being sanctioned by Universal…
In a few pictures posted to Instagram, you can see the cast members hanging out prepping for their big roles — and some of them chilling with their real life characters!
In the picture above you can see Daz Dillinger as well as Azad Arnaud, the actor who plays him, Dr. Dre as well as Curtis, Dre's son who plays him in the film, Reggie Noble who plays Suge Knights, The Lady of Rage, DaDa who plays Tupac, and Melvin jackson Jr. who plays Kurupt!
A couple other pics (below) showed up on online after Daz got the guys together to shoot a scene for the flick where Suge, Tupac and Daz all record Ambitionz As a Ridah and I Ain't Mad at Cha!
Young Buck is, for lack of the better word… pissed!
In May, the rapper — who is currently on probation — was ordered by his officer to undergo a drug test by submitting his own urine.
Unfortunately, the G-Unit group member got caught with his pants down — literally — when the official allegedly saw him take out a bag of someone else's pee and then used a tube to transfer it into a sample cup.
And fast forward to now, Buck could go to jail for faking his own urine!
Falsifying a court-mandated drug test is a felony and could land someone in prison for up to five years! OUCH!
Young Buck's number one definitely does not make him number one.

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!
So that means Hollywood is getting ready to follow up with more rap biopics! It's been reported that a Straight Outta Compton sequel is in the works — following the rise of Snoop Dogg, Tupac, and other West Coast greats!
Dogg Pound veteran Daz revealed that the film — reportedly titled Dogg Pound 4 Life — will follow the careers of Snoop, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Daz, and Warren G!
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?
Dr. Dre has been very active in the music industry since the release of his sophomore album 2001! So, you might have forgotten that the prolific producer's last album was released in 1999!
But the Nuthin' but a "G" Thang rapper's musical hiatus will shortly come to an end. It's been announced that Dre will release his first new album in over 15 years!

The Beats By Dre creator explained that the inspiration for his return to the recording studio was the
Boy, Snoop Dogg has had a tough week in Europe!
First, last weekend, he was detained in Sweden after police believed him to be driving under the influence of drugs.
And now, in Italy, he was stopped at the airport with tons of cash — and had half of it taken away by customs authorities!
Snoop was stopped by customs agents at Lamezia Terme Airport on Saturday with the dough — and it was a crazy amount of money!
Well, Snoop Dogg finds himself in some international legal hot water!
Police in Uppsala, Sweden pulled the rapper's car over on Saturday after he finished his concert in the city. They arrested and booked the rapper, alleging he was driving under the influence of narcotics.
According to police captain Daniel Nilsson, the incident sounded pretty simple from their perspective:
