Rightly known for a while as “the world’s most dangerous group”, N.W.A. (short for “Niggaz With Attitudes”) was not only the group that popularized West Coast gangster rap, but the beginning of a hip-hop empire. Group members Ice Cube, Eazy-E, and especially Dr. Dre would go on to astounding solo success after the group’s breakup in 1991

But before that, there were the tunes. N.W.A.’s classics gave a street-level view of L.A. life in a way few had before, and the teaming of Dre and Yella’s production with powerful, smart lyrics (mostly by Ice Cube, Ren, and group affiliate Tracy “The D.O.C.” Curry) changed the world
