N.W.A. '100 Miles and Runnin' ALBUM INFO:

100 Miles and Runnin' is the title of an EP by hip hop group N.W.A., released in 1990 on Ruthless Records. Prior to recording, all of the group members had signed a long-term contract with the Ruthless Records label. However, member Ice Cube refused the contract's terms and consequently separated from the group. Although the album was released as an EP, it nevertheless hit the charts and sold over 500,000 copies, reaching gold status. This was not surprising as the group had gained popularity from being seen as front runners of the increasingly-trendy genre of gangsta rap.

The title track "100 Miles and Runnin'" became the song that got the group major airtime on the radio and TV with the music video. Dr. Dre, who had just finished working with The D.O.C. and Above the Law, shines in his production with the usual funky beats and the slow synth groove on "Just Don't Bite It". A sadistic parody of the police on a skit featuring The D.O.C. from the group's 1-900 hotline introduces "Sa Prize, Pt. 2", a sequel to the controversial "Fuck tha Police" originally off of the Straight Outta Compton album. MC Ren and The D.O.C. wrote the lyrics for Eazy-E and Dr. Dre. In the end, the album served to anticipate the group's upcoming album, Efil4zaggin.

100 Miles and Runnin' was the first N.W.A. album after Ice Cube had left the group a year earlier. Roots of the N.W.A. vs. Ice Cube battles originated here with subtle negative references to the ex-member. On the title track of the album Dre states "It started with five one couldn't take it / So now there's four 'cause the fifth couldn't make it" to dismiss Ice Cube as a coward, and on the song "Real Niggaz" MC Ren stated "Only reason niggaz pick up your record is cause they thought it was us", referring to the success of Ice Cube's first solo album AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted which was released earlier that year. More attacks on Ice Cube would be given on their next album, Efil4zaggin. Ice Cube would sound respond to these attacks on his follow-up to AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted, Death Certificate.

Three songs from this album- "100 Miles and Runnin'", "Just Don't Bite It", and "Real Niggaz"- were later released on N.W.A.'s Greatest Hits. "Real Niggaz" would also appear on N.W.A.'s final studio album, Efil4zaggin, a year later, while the 2003 remastered edition of Efil4zaggin would append the rest of 100 Miles and Runnin' to the track listing.
