N.W.A. - Greatest Hits 12"
N.W.A (short for Niggaz With Attitude) was an American hip hop group from Compton, California, widely considered one of the seminal acts of the gangsta rap sub-genre. Active from 1986 to 1991, the group endured controversy due to the explicit nature of their lyrics, and were subsequently banned from many mainstream U.S. radio stations, and even prevented from touring at times. In spite of this, the group has sold over 10 million units in the U.S. alone. Their debut album Straight Outta Compton marked the beginning of the new gangsta rap era as the production and social commentary in their lyrics were revolutionary within the genre.
