N.W.A., 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee

N.W.A’s improbable rise from marginalized outsiders to the most controversial and complicated voices of their generation remains one of rock’s most explosive, relevant and challenging tales. From their Compton, California headquarters, Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella would - by force of will and unrelenting tales of street life - sell tens of millions of records, influence multiple generations the world over and extend artistic middle fingers to the societal barriers of geography, respectability, caste, authority and whatever else happened to get in their way. - See more at:
