Throwback Friday: Straight Outta Compton; NWA Posted-Up On A Street Corner In L.A.

N.W.A aka Niggaz Wit Attitudes was one of the most controversial Hip-Hop groups from Compton, California. They repped gangsta rap, rhymed about the grimy street life in Compton and became famous for songs such as “Straight Outta Compton” and “F**k Tha Police,” which protested police brutality and racial profiling. The original group consisted of  Eazy-E,  Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, DJ Yella, Arabian Prince and MC Ren . The group released their debut studio album, entitled Straight Outta Compton, in 1988. The disc reached the US Billboard Top LPs chart at number 37 in 1989 and sold over three-million copies worldwide. N.W.A.’s album Niggaz4Life, which was released in 1991 was the group’s final album. The group split because of financial reasons. After Eazy-E’s death on March 26, 1995, all bad blood between the group ceased.
