Factual error: When they show a news snippet of a presenter in a music store talking about gangsta rap, in the background copies of Leaders Of The New School's "TIME" album can be seen. This album was not released until 1993. (00:52:00)
Factual error: In one of the scenes it's shown depicting Suge and his henchmen viscously assaulting Eazy E in the studio to get him to sign over his artists to his label in actuality this never happened. Eazy E was never assaulted by Suge, only threatened and was told to sign the contract out of fear of his and his family's life.
Continuity mistake: When Dre is talking to his brother outside the house before he leaves, the house in the background is showing partial sun (around sunset). Then, it becomes fully in the sun in the last shot as he's now leaving. The frame instantly changes to a wider view of the street, and now the house is fully shady with the sun already down.
Factual error: The film focuses on 5 members of NWA, but there were actually 6 members (in the first two years). Arabian Prince was a member, yet for some reason, he is not included in the story at all.
