ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

Lance Bass wants the world to know he is "Straight outta Ellisville, MS" in a photo he shared Tuesday. 

The photo is part of a popular internet meme surge created by Beats by Dre to promote the new movie "Straight Outta Compton." 

According to IMDB, the movie is about the group NWA, who emerged from the streets of Compton, California in the mid-1980s and revolutionizes Hip Hop culture with their music.

Lance Bass was born in Laurel, and grew up in Ellisville, Mississippi before rising to fame with the popular 90's boy band NSYNC. 

Bass revealed in a cover story for People magazine in 2006 that he was gay. Bass, who has always been proud of his home state, recently teamed up with Mississippi, I Am, documentary exploring the battle on the part of young LGBT in a mostly conservative state. 

Bass also got married in February, making his wedding the first nationally televised gay marriage. 

Bass now hosts a popular radio show on Sirius Radio called "Dirty Pop."

Thanks for the shout out, Lance!
