N.W.A.'s MC Ren

John Singleton Has the Right Attitude

To Direct N.W.A. Biopic

10/1/2011 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MC Ren
One of the most sought-after roles in Hollywood right now is directing the biopic of rap group N.W.A. ... but as far as original rap member MC Ren is concerned ... there's only one dude for the job -- John Singleton.

Ren tells TMZ he has been in touch with Ice Cube and lobbied for Singleton. Ren says Cube agreed.

Singelton, certainly has the cred to do an N.W.A. flick, with "Boyz N The Hood" under his belt. Ren says, "He knows L.A. He knows the hood and understands it. That is what the director will fully have to comprehend to do a N.W.A. film."

Apparently he didn't see "Abduction."
