Hip-Hop Legends: N.W.A

Stemming from Compton, California and emerging into a solid entity in the world of Hip-Hop, N.W.A delivered a lethal dose of charismatic and politically-charged lyrical expression led by cut-throat vocals that added the almighty touch. Capable of delivering insane Hip-Hop breakdowns and the perfect balance between the first-generation Hip-Hop attitude laced with the at time modern feel, N.W.A changed the world of Hip-Hop and Gangsta Rap forever and their legacy is laced into the deliveries of the up and coming artists of the day and will be until the end of time. You know damn well that West Coast rap will never be the same and that N.W.A were on a whole ‘nother level than their fellow comrades. Whether speaking of how much they disdain the police or picking up the ladies on the mean streets, the members of N.W.A, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E (R.I.P) DJ Yella and MC Ren are the most pivotal Hip-Hop group of all time. Here are five rhymes that’ll take you on a time machine back to when the world was a bit less aggressive but N.W.A’s pension was felt throughout the world.

“Fuck the police! Comin’ straight from the underground
A young nigga got it bad ‘cause I’m brown
And not the other color, so police think
They have the authority to kill a minority
Fuck that shit, ‘cause I ain’t the one
For a punk motherfucker with a badge and a gun
To be beating on, and thrown in jail
We can go toe-to-toe in the middle of a cell
Fuckin’ with me ‘cause I’m a teenager
With a little bit of gold and a pager
Searchin’ my car, lookin’ for the product
Thinkin’ every nigga is sellin’ narcotics
You’d rather see me in the pen
Than me and Lorenzo rollin’ in a Benz-o
Beat a police out of shape
And when I’m finished, bring the yellow tape
To tape off the scene of the slaughter
Still getting swoll off bread and water
I don’t know if they fags or what
Search a nigga down, and grabbing his nuts
And on the other hand, without a gun, they can’t get none”

Track – “Fuck Tha Police”


“A bitch is a bitch
So if I’m poor or rich
I talk in the exact same pitch
Now the title bitch don’t apply to all women
But all women have a little bitch in ’em
It’s like a disease that plagues their character
Taking the women of America
And it starts with the letter B
It makes a girl like that think she better than me
See, some get mad and some just bear it
But, yo, if the shoe fits wear it
It makes ’em go deaf in the ear that’s why
When you say ‘hi’ she won’t say ‘hi’
Are you the kind that think you’re too damn fly?
Bitch eat shit and die
Ice Cube coming at you at a crazy pitch
(Why?) I think a bitch is a bitch”

Track – “A Bitch Iz A Bitch”


“When the cops came, they gave a fake name
Because the life in the streets is just a head game
So therefore, to make more
A 15-year-old black kid’ll go and rob a liquor store
And get shot in the process
He ate up a nine bullet and now he’s put to rest”

Track – “Niggaz 4 Life”


“Ruthless, plenty of that and much more
So at the party, Ren is controllin the floor
That you step and do your dance routine
It ain’t a dream my man, you’re in a gangsta scene
With a villain doin damage on a 24 track
With no confusion to finish my conclusion
Rythymatic rhymes from a radio cat
You can’t take what I got coz I’ll be takin it right back
Ruthless gangsta – Cold killin
You wanna know what it’s means? – Definition villain”

Track – “Quiet On Tha Set”

“Straight outta Compton, crazy motherfucker named Ice Cube
From the gang called Niggas Wit Attitudes
When I’m called off, I got a sawed-off
Squeeze the trigger and bodies are hauled off
You too, boy, if you fuck with me
The police are gonna have to come and get me
Off your ass, that’s how I’m going out
For the punk motherfuckers that’s showing out
Niggas start to mumble, they wanna rumble
Mix ’em and cook ’em in a pot, like gumbo
Going off on the motherfucker like that
With a gat that’s pointed at your ass
So give it up smooth
Ain’t no telling when I’m down for a jack move
Here’s a murder rap to keep y’all dancin’
With a crime record like Charles Manson
AK-47 is the tool
Don’t make me act a motherfucking fool”

Track – “Straight Outta Compton”
