NWA 21 Years Ago

NWA from their 1988 smash LP
It's hard to believe 21 years has gone by since the original hip hop gangsters known as N.W.A. released a massive underground hit LP record.  21 fucking years! Jesus. Where has the time gone? Banned from record stores and even some concerts, these guys were the OUT and OUT best and ORIGINAL hip hop crew to bust out of the 80's since Run DMC.
You should check out their old videos from 1988, it'll give you a tiny taste of the hatred between the Compton residents and the law enforcement community. My personal favorite is "Fuck the Police" followed closely by "Straight Outta Compton" and then their "100 Miles and Runnin'". I can still recite the first few lines of Fuck the police & Straight Outta Compton. Goooooooooooood times.
