N.W.A – Straigh Outta Compton


N.W.A was an American hip hop group from Compton, California. The original lineup, formed in early 1987, consisted of Arabian Prince, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, and Ice Cube, with DJ Yella and MC Ren joining later that year. Its members were among the earliest and most significant popularizers and controversial figures of the gangsta rap subgenre, and the group is widely considered one of the greatest and most influential groups in the history of hip hop music. Straight Outta Compton is their debut album, released on August 1988. The track “Fuck tha Police” drew an FBI agent’s warning letter, which aided N.W.A’s notoriety, N.W.A calling itself “the world’s most dangerous group.” In 2016, it became the first rap album inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. The next year, the Library of Congress enshrined Straight Outta Compton in the National Recording Registry.
