Straight Outta Compton (Bonus Tracks, Edited)

by N.W.A.
Straight Outta Compton by N.W.A.
Released: Sep 1988
Label: Priority Records
Straight Outta Compton's near-mythic reputation belies its contents. It is justifiably celebrated for classic gangsta raps like "F*ck Tha Police," Ice Cube's "Gangsta Gangsta" and "Straight Outta Compton." But the rest of the album is straight-up MC'ing and funky hip-hop, from MC Ren freestyling "Quiet on Tha Set" to Dr. Dre clowning suckers on "Compton's N the House." Then there's Dre's radio-friendly hit "Express Yourself" and Arabian Prince's electro-bass interlude "Something 2 Dance 2," the latter sounding out of place on this seminal exploration of "the strength of street knowledge."
