Review #70: Straight Outta Compton, N.W.A.

#70: Straight Outta Compton, N.W.A.

Recall Album Review #37, Dr. Dre’s The Chronic Dr. Dre was in the N.W.A.

I stated in no uncertain terms that this album should have The Chronic’s spot. The Chronic is a perfectly serviceable rap album, but it’s simply not as important as this one. Am I crazy? Everyone and their mother has heard “Express Yourself”!
