Straight Outta Compton

Standing for 'nigga with attitude' N.W.A. were one of rap's first major West Coast crews. Pioneering a new, ferocious, street level form of rapping the band's album 'Straight Outta Compton' was a sensation, selling by the bucketload and overnight changing how rap was perceived. Of course, the band would later disintegrate but at their peak N.W.A. were white America's worst nightmare.
