Shouts to Hip Hop Official for the look on this one. You may remember that I posted the original video for “Today Was a Good Day” a couple weeks back, well this is the extended version.

I can’t imagine how gangsta this movie is going to be. N.W.A influenced an entire generation of emcees on the independent circuit and paved the way for cats who wanted to rap for a living.  They did all of  the aforementioned information all while telling a After the success of the movie Notorious I really think that this movie, as well, could be a smash at the box office.
