N.W.A And Their Family Tree…Another cheap cash in?

To commemorate the historic and ongoing musical and cultural influence of N.W.A, Capitol/Priority will release “N.W.A And Their Family Tree” on September 30. The new CD and digital collection features a cross-section of 18 genre-defining tracks by the pioneering gangsta rap group and its founders, plus Mack 10, Westside Connection, Snoop Dogg, and other N.W.A-inspired artists.

Two decades have passed since N.W.A rocketed “Straight Outta Compton” to multi-platinum success, worldwide acclaim and notoriety as rap music’s most powerful force, redefining forever the boundaries of popular music. In the course of little more than three years, N.W.A.’s Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren and Yella reached unprecedented gangsta superstardom with their no-holds-barred missives from Los Angeles’ toughest streets.

“N.W.A And Their Family Tree” charts the group’s lineage through 18 key tracks, including what could be considered the House of N.W.A.’s most valuable heirloom, the explosive title track from “Straight Outta Compton,” the group’s history-making, double platinum 1988 release. Also included are N.W.A.’s “Fuck Tha Police”, “Dopeman”, “Express Yourself,” and “Boyz-N-The Hood,” Ice Cube’s “It Was A Good Day,” Eazy-E’s “We Want Eazy,” MC Ren’s “Final Frontier,” The D.O.C.’s “It’s Funky Enough,” Westside Connection’s “Bow Down” and “Gangstas Make The World Go ‘Round,” Mack 10’s “Foe Life,” Snoop Dogg featuring Xzibit’s “Bitch Please,” and other top tracks from the scions of N.W.A.

  1. I’m pretty sure this is a re-release. This album originally came out several years ago. I remember, because I fought to get Yella’s track “4 THA E’ onto it and lost.
