Amoeba Review

BillyJam 05/26/2014

Released six weeks after Public Enemy's Nation Of Millions, this album, while divergent in political content, was equally powerful and ubiquitous and could be heard bumping loud everywhere back in the summer of '88. Like PE's masterpiece, this album would also summon a whole new sub-genre of rap/hip-hop. While PE signaled the short-lived politically-charged movement of hip-hop, N.W.A. cemented gangsta rap as a force to be reckoned with (like it or not) up to this day with anthems like the irresistible single "Gangsta Gangsta," "Straight Outta Compton," and "Fuck tha Police." Crazy to think that Ice Cube (like Ice-T), who once railed against police authority, would go on to be an actor playing a cop (Ride Along). But a lot has changed since Straight Outta Compton was released. Eazy E is now dead nearly 20 years. Dr. Dre become a triple billionaire with the Beats by Dre/Apple deal. But back in '88, NWA and all its members - Eazy, Cube, Dre, Ren, Yella, and Arabian Prince - were at the top of their game and oozed raw energy and talent. Truly a classic!
