N.W.A Biopic 'Straight Outta Compton' is finally here

Posted at August 12th, 2015 | by Guest Writer | in

N.W.A (Niggaz Wit Attitudes) was an American Hip-Hop crew from Compton, California (1986 – 1991), that pioneered and revolutionized the Gangsta Rap and West Coast Hip-Hop subgenres. The rap group, consisting of Eazy-E (group founder), Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, MC Ren and DJ Yella, courted much controversy owing to their music’s explicit lyrics that were viewed by many as disrespectful to women and that glorified drugs and crime. They were subsequently banned from several mainstream American radio stations. In spite of this, the group has sold over 10 million units in the United States alone. The group was also known for their deep hatred of the police system, demonstrated in their infamous hit “Fuck Tha Police” which sparked much controversy over the years.
