Your new "Straight Outta" meme subject is Erik Compton of the PGA Tour

August 20, 2015

Straight Outta Compton, the tale of the barrier-breaking rap group N.W.A., is the hottest movie in the country. And in 2015, popularity equates to parody.

A myriad of memes have sprung up using the band's/film's eponymous "straight outta" tag line. For example, an image of California imposed with "Straight Outta Water," or "Straight Outta Teammates" snagged to Kobe Bryant.

The latest treatment? The PGA Tour's own Erik Compton.

Yes, their names share commonality, and if anyone deserves this spotlight, it's Compton, the 35-year-old, two-time heart transplant recipient, as he posted a 62 to share the first-round lead at the Wyndham Championship.

Still, I don't think this is what Dre, Cube and E envisioned. Isn't America the best?
