The increment revealed a mid shot of a man portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix known simply as Arthur. A clapperboard instigates the start of the clip. Accompaned by a presumed non diegitic audio.

'Straight Outta Compton' Sequel???
Released in 2015, Straight Outta Compton told the story of the up and coming rappers based out of Compton, California. The plot involved Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy E, DJ Yella and MC Ren who came together to form the group NWA in the late eighties. Granted 72 percent on behalf of Metacritic as well as 87 percent by Rotten Tomatoes, F. Gary Gray’s picture received favorable reviews. In addition to N.W.A., cameos were provided to characters such as Snoop Dogg and Tupac prompting the notions of a sequel. Met with overwhelming public perception, the film demanded a sequel. Remaining unaffiliated with the Gray film cannon All Eyez on Me, directed by Benny Boom was released last year only to be met with extremely poor perception. This biographical portrayal of Shakur on the screen demands a redemption of the acclaimed rapper. A redemption that can only be delivered with the continuation of Gray’s series.
Top Hip Hop Hits of 2010's (According to Me)

With such success in the past many have begun to question the current state of the rap and the future of the industry. Although a demographic feel that the golden years of the genre are in the past I argue some of the greatest hits are among this very decade and that the future will only offer more. Below I have provided several examples of my favourite rap songs produced throughout this decade.
