Niggas With Attitude, the revolutionary gangsta rap group from the mid 80's who brought a new level of awareness of daily life in South Central Los Angeles. Famous for songs like "Straight Outta Compton", "Fuck The Police" and "Dopeman" to name a few. These songs described the things that happen in everyday life in South CentralLA. Members included Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and the late Eazy E to name a few. Their music was not only very good sounding but had a message about gangs and gang violence.
"N.W.A. opened the world's eyes to the gang happenings in South Central Los Angeles."

N.W.A.: Niggaz With Attitude

the 1st actual people who started explicit writing in rap songs. Don't be saying "Oh yea Kayne is the best ever!" cause he aint. It all started w/ Dr. Dre, Eazy E, Ice Cube, MC Ren & Mella Yella. Straigth west coast rap! They got alot of attention on their 2nd album where they said "Fuck the Police" on the album, "Straight Outta Compton" the most recognized NWA album. Then following they had "100 Miles and Runnin'" and EP they did for Compton city fans. Shortly after, Ice Cube went solo and NWA relesed their 2nd big hit album, "Efil4Zaggin/Niggaz 4 Life" Some good hits like "Alwayz Into Somethin'" "Appitite for Destruction" "Just Don't Bite it" and many others. When this sold, Eazy and Dre had a money fued. The 2 hit rappers left and NWA split, w/ the members taking sides. Dr. Dre was the 1st to make a big hit. He did a song called "187mm/Deep Cover" w/ the newcomer Snoop Dogg. Dre claims he thought it was weak but it made him the money to make "The Chronic" his 1st LP. the 1st hit single came out, "Fuck Wit Dre Day & Everybody Celebratin'" a diss to his once friend Eazy E. but Eazy wasn't tooken down. It had been 5 years when he released his 2nd album in 1993. "It's On Dre" an EP he produced w/ some of his own record label rappers. Eazy's diss to Dre didnt go big but had a diss to "Dre Day"'s video. In the Dre Day video it has someone acting like Eazy w/ a sign at the Compton freeway saying "Will Rap 4 Food", Well on Eazy's "Reel Muthaphuckin' Gs" ("Reel Compton City G's" on edited version) it shows Eazy w/ his whole fam and gang beating up the poser of Eazy. This did not go big but was still good none the less. This album went unnotice, but then he stopped the dissing for a bit and released his next ep, "5150 Home 4 Tha Sick". This included some great songs that would make his hits album in 2 years, "Only if You Want it", "Neighborhood Sniper" & "Zaggin (Niggaz) My Height Don't Fight" (availble on NWA's "Efil4Zaggin") It also included a song that would include the future members of BEP, "Merry Muthafuckin' Xmas". 2 years later Eazy E died of aids. A month later they released his next LP, "Str8 Off Tha Streetz Of Muthafuckin' Compton". Once that went a hit, they released his "Eternal E, Greatest Hits" album. Dre had never felt so sad. Ice Cube had made many albums during the Dre/Eazy fued. Everyone had felt ashamed. 4 years later Dre got back on his albums and released his long-awaited, "2001" (released in 1999) As this happen it somehow made an end to west coast rap. NWA had 1 last track on the "Next Friday" soundtrack featuring Snoop Dogg. The last album you can expect to be real NWA style is Dre's last album, "The Detox" expected around 2006.

NWA, or Niggas With Attitude, was a very influential rap group in the 80's.

It's funny that Dr. Dre is listed below as being one of the "no talent hacks" that they paved the way for - Dr. Dre was actually the founder of NWA and probably the reason for their success. Other members included Ice Cube (who now an actor), and Easy {muthafuckin} E (who is now dead).

NWA popularized the phrases "Fuck the Police," and "Straight outta compton".

Regardless of how offensive some may find their lyrics, no one can deny their talent or their large influence on hiphop of today.

NWA = Niggaz With Attitude. The name says it all. Rap group outta Compton, California comprised of Easy E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Renn, and the D.O.C. The original rap group to stir up and disturb the status quo held mostly by white conservative republicans who want to see the blacks living on the bottom of society so the rest of the US can live good. They're basicly responsible for the dirrection rap has taken and led us to today; imitated many times but never duplicated. Both hated and loved for their revolutionary thinking, and fresh orriginality they brought to the mike. Often considered the anti-Public Enemy for their promotion of violence, drugs, cursing, etc. Gave birth to a few truely great MCs : mega producer and rapper Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Easy E, Tupac Shakur, (formerly) Snoop Dogg, Death Row Records, and upcomming prodigy: The Game.

Sometimes refered to as Nerds With Aptitude which is funny as hell, cause they are anything but this (they wern't known for bieng overly educated but so what?).
N.W.A were the greatest back in the day and, their memory is alive and well today, without a doubt.
