'Straight Outta Compton' ALBUM INFO:

Straight Outta Compton is a genre-defining gangsta rap album by N.W.A first released in 1988, and later rereleased on September 24, 2002 in a remastered version with four bonus tracks. The album was a hip hop groundbreaker that went on to have an enormous impact on the evolution of gangsta rap. The album reached double platinum sales status, becoming the first album to reach platinum status with no airplay support. Straight Outta Compton's released date was often confused at times. Many sites say the album was released in 1988 and some say in 1989. This is because the album was released twice in the late 1980's: first on vinyl in 1988, and later on CD in 1989. The CD version contained more songs than the year-old vinyl version.

Because Straight Outta Compton was an album featuring recurring violent and sexual lyrics and profanity, often specifically directed at governmental organizations such as the LAPD, N.W.A always enjoyed a particular repudiation from Senators and FBI. This situation persisted over the years with the group's visible head, Eazy-E.

In 2003 the TV network VH1 named Straight Outta Compton the 62nd greatest album of all time. It was ranked 10 in Spin's "100 Greatest Albums, 1985-2005". In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source Magazine's 100 Best Rap Albums. It's the group's only album on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time (ranked #144), and when comedian Chris Rock wrote an article for the magazine about the 25 Greatest Hip-Hop Albums of all time in 2005, "Straight Outta Compton" was #1 on his list. In 2006, the album was named as one of the 1001 albums you must hear before you die.

Seven songs from this album- "Gangsta Gangsta", "Fuck Tha Police", "Straight Outta Compton" [Extended Mix], "If It Ain't Ruff", "I Ain't Tha 1", the remix of "Express Yourself", and "A Bitch Iz A Bitch"- were later released on "N.W.A.'s Greatest Hits". The album's most controversial track, "Fuck tha Police" was responsible in great part for the fame of N.W.A as World's Most Dangerous Group. "Fuck Tha Police" was so lyrically controversial it resulted in Milt Ahlerich, an assistant director of the FBI, sending a letter to Ruthless Records and its parent company Priority, advising the rappers that "advocating violence and assault is wrong and we in the law enforcement community take exception to such action." Policemen also refused to provide security to the group's concerts, hurting their plans to tour. But in the end, the FBI's letter only served to draw more publicity to the group. Straight Outta Compton was also one of the albums which prompted the parental advisory label scheme.

Heres an excerpt from the lyrics of "Fuck Tha Police":

Ice Cube will swarm, On any muthafucka in a blue uniform,
Just cuz I'm from the CPT, punk police are afraid of me.
A young nigga on a warpath, And when I'm finished, it's gonna be a bloodbath
Of cops, dyin in L.A., Yo Dre, I got somethin to say."
