Location # 2 on the tour is Skateland USA in Compton, California. The actual Skateland in Compton had been closed for many years by the time production had started on the movie. And since it was gutted and and vertually condemed, filming had to be done in Glendale, California.

This was the actual location of N.W.A’s first official show. Originally a bowling alley before being turned into a skating rink and music venue. Some of the most famous rappers of all time started here. Visit for some good info on this historic building.

Since the actual Skateland USA was no longer available for shooting, the production team went about 20 miles north to use The Moonlight Rollerway in Glendale, California.
