VH-1 Rock Docs w/ NWA: The World’s Most Dangerous Group September 30, 2008

NWA is one of the most prolific groups in hip hop history, hands down. Dre, Cube, Eazy, Ren, Yella scared the heck out of America with the 1988 release of “Straight Outta Compton.”

As a native of South Los Angeles, I always felt this group spoke of the ills of street life, which is life as we know it in South Central Los Angeles. NWA’s in-your-face lyrics and attitude were understandable to me, because I know the experience. Compton, Watts, Long Beach, Inglewood, South Central. Ghetto life doesn’t stop there. Many areas throughout Los Angeles are plagued with gang violence. Don’t let the stuff you see on tv fool you. Hollywood, West LA, Venice and parts of Santa Monica have their ‘hoods. It’s not all glamorous like you see on TMZ.

NWA aired Los Angeles’ dirty laundry for the entire world to see, while changing the course of hip hop. The group’s impact will be discussed on VH-1’s Rock Docs, this Friday  Oct. 3 at 8pm PST/11pm EST. I’m setting the DVR for this one. This hip hop documentary is not to be missed.

If the NWA documentary doesn’t excite you enough, or if you’re like me and want background music to accompany your viewing pleasure, a compilation entitled, “NWA Family Tree is being released today. Yay for new release Tuesdays. This compilation is a must have for any west coast hip hop aficianado. It includes classics from Ice Cube, Eazy, Yo-Yo, Mack-10, Warren G, Westside Connection, Snoop. This is a must have for any hip hop aficianado. Cop that LP!
