N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton (Vinyl)
(United Kingdom - Import)

Digitally remastered edition of this 1988 Hip Hop classic. Although not the creators of Gangsta Rap, N.W.A was it's most prolific pioneer, putting it on the map of American music without the help of radio or MTV. The group was formed in Compton, California in 1986 by Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, and Ice Cube. Shortly after composing "Boys N the Hood," they added DJ Yella, the D.O.C. and Arabian Prince to the lineup. N.W.A.'s first album, N.W.A And the Posse, was released in 1987. The following year, the group added the edgy vocals of MC Ren. All of the pieces were in place to deliver the now classic Straight Outta Compton in '88.

The year 2008 marks the 20th anniversary of N.W.A's landmark album STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, one of the two most important gangsta rap albums ever (the other being N.W.A. founding member Dr. Dre's THE CHRONIC). The album sounds as ferocious and frightening as ever, as it continues to voice the "power of street knowledge" to the masses. Like the similarly themed 10th Anniversary edition, this version of S.O.C. contains a handful of reworked versions of songs by some of the biggest names in post-N.W.A. rap, including Snoop Dogg ("Gangsta Gangsta") and Ice Cube protege Mack 10 ("Dopeman"). The collective force and power of Ren, Eazy-E, Dre, Cube, and Yella can not be underestimated, and this 20th-anniversary disc is evidence why.
