“Straight Outta Compton” just got a significantly less gangster trailer.

YouTube user Kern Saxton recut scenes from the blockbuster biopic to make a 4-minute trailer set to Ben Folds’ cover of Dr. Dre‘s “Bitches Ain’t Shit,” a track from the rapper’s first solo album, “The Chronic.”

The song attacks N.W.A. member Eazy-E for favoring “white bitch” manager Jerry Heller over the other artists in the iconic rap group.

The Universal film, which has grossed over $120 million so far, traces the rise of N.W.A., as well as the fallout between other members including Ice Cube, MC Ren, and DJ Yella. Arabian Prince, considered a founding member of the group, was left out of the drama.

Folds, a singer-songwriter known for his melodic piano-driven rock songs, released a 2005 “Bitches Ain’t Shit” cover, which managed to reach No. 71 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Watch the video above, and then listen to Dre’s original version below.
