"Shout out to all the pears" said Rick Ross in an interview on his favorite fruit during weight loss. Well done, internet for this one. Instagram

Friday marks the heavily anticipated release of the film Straight Outta Compton, which chronicles the groundbreaking album of the same name released in 1988 by the rap group N.W.A.

The first studio album released by members Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, DJ Yella and MC Ren revolutionized the music industry as the gritty and raw lyrics depicted in musical form, what it was life living in the streets of Compton outside Los Angeles.

Earlier in the week, as a promotional and marketing strategy, Beats By Dre, the headphone and music streaming company that was stated by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine (and is now owned by Apple), created a meme generator on their website in which the public could generate their own "Straight Outta" image with a custom logo from the movie.

The tweet below, started the phenomenon as social media went crazy with all the custom images. Most memes featured fans putting their hometown, but quickly creative minds took hold and various versions of the "Straight Outta" meme generator took hold depicting others with hilarious captions.

Things escalated quickly, and celebrities, public officials, Oxford University in England, and even the White House got involved in the "Straight Outta" social media meme generator craze. Even our own Sports Editor, Michael Duarte, got in on the action on Instagram.

Hopefully the fad has died down a bit, but with the domestic release of the movie less than 24 hours away, we thought we would find for you our favorite memes and images of the "Straight Outta" craze started by Beats By Dre. Enjoy.

Running is really tiring
