Ice Cube + MC Ren + Eazy-E + DJ Yella + Dr. Dre = N.W.A, one of, if not, the greatest rap acts of all time. And this collection of the best material N.W.A released in their career proves that providing the heavy bass lines, big beats and the best lyrics.
Hugely controversial when first released, F*ck Tha Police, broke the boundaries of late 1980's gangsta rap. It was so controversial that it had the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service send a letter to Ruthless Records informing the label of their displeasure with the song's message, and N.W.A were banned from performing at several venues.
Other popular songs featured on the album include Gangsta Gangsta, Express Yourself, 100 Miles and Runnin', Alwayz Into Somethin, and the massive song Straight Outta Compton, from the smash hit double platinum album of the same name.
Sadly Eazy-E passed away in 1995, no word from MC Ren and DJ Yella for at least a decade, still, Ice Cube has gone on to achieve mad success with many big albums, and Dr. Dre still remains one of the most important and best people to ever be involved in Hip Hop.
This album not only shows how popular and important N.W.A. were, but also manages to gather some of the best rap music ever created all on one CD for you to enjoy over and over and over again.
You can also get this great collection with a Bonus DVD, featuring the music videos, interviews and more, which is also available. Either way, make sure you get yours from Play.com, if you don't you're missing out on a great purchase.
N.W.A. they may be gone, but they'll never be forgotten...
