Former N.W.A. Manager Jerry Heller Dead At 75

The man who brought the world N.W.A., the influential rap group of nearly three decades ago, has died.

Jerry Heller had a medical emergency while driving his car in Ventura County, California, on Friday, and during the incident, slammed into another car.

He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, and later pronounced dead — though, as TMZ reports, it's unclear if he died from the initial medical emergency or the ensuing crash.

Straight Outta Compton Cast Throws MAJOR Shade At The Oscars After Winning The True Story Award At The 2016 MTV Movie Awards!

Filed under: MTVOscarsMTV Movie & TV AwardsShade

Despite being one of the most popular and acclaimed films last year, Straight Outta Compton was majorly snubbed at the 2016 Oscars.

Though the N.W.A. biopic didn't get the praise it deserved from the Academy, it finally got some recognition at the MTV Movie Awards!

So after winning the Best True story award, Jason Mitchell — who played Easy-E in the film — decided to throw some long overdue shade at the prestigious award show that was notoriously not-so-colorful this year.

Joined on stage by costars O'Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Aldis Hodge, and Neil Brown Jr., plus original N.W.A. member DJ Yella, Mitchell took the mic and said:

"I would just like to take a moment to, like, thank the Academy — I mean, MTV. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. My bad!"

AH-Mazing!

Ch-ch-check out the speech (above) to see the perfect clap back!

AH-Mazing news!

Straight Outta Compton may have gotten majorly snubbed at the Oscars this year, but Dr. Dre and Ice Cube will be receiving an accolade that is much more meaningful to them!

N.W.A. will be welcomed into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and will be inducted by one of their biggest super fans, Kendrick Lamar!

The Alright rapper will head to Brooklyn in April to welcome Dre, Ice Cube, DJ Yella, Easy-E, and MC Ren into the hall during the ceremony!

K.Dot has made no secret that the legendary hip-hop group has helped shape his career, even dedicating one of his Grammy wins to the members!

N.W.A. is among an esteemed class of inductees, joined by Steve Miller, Deep Purple, Chicago, and Cheap Trick!

Kid Rock will introduce Cheap Trick, joining other presenters The Black Keys, Lars Ulrich, and Rob Thomas.

Oh. Hmm. Maybe not a good time to seat Rob next to the guys from N.W.A…

The 31st Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on April 8, and air in a telecast on April 30 on HBO!

Forget Snubbed, The Cast Of Straight Outta Compton Wasn't Even INVITED To The Oscars!

no title

It's no secret that Straight Outta Compton was one of the biggest Oscars snubs this year!

But with celebs like Will Smith and Spike Lee not attending the award show in protest of its lack of diversity, we've been wondering if the stars of the N.W.A. biopic would be following suit.

Well, it turns out they couldn't if they wanted to, because the cast wasn't even INVITED to the ceremony — and neither was the film's producer Ice Cube!

According to TMZ, the only two people involved in the film who scored an invitation are Jonathan Herman and Andrea Berloff — the two (white) screenwriters who were nominated for Best Original Screenplay!

While sources say Ice Cube most likely wouldn't have attended the event even if he did get an invite, the Ride Along 2 star will be attending the SAG Awards and NAACP Image Awards — which both nominated Straight Outta Compton in several categories.

It's not clear what criteria the Academy has for extending an invitation, but we think the talented cast would have made an appropriate choice to fill in the extra seats this year!

Do YOU think the cast should have received an invitation?
