Ep.225 - N.W.A

The legacy of N.W.A runs so deep in Hip-Hop that it's hard to say something fresh about it; but their music still connects Ren, Cube, Eazy, Dre, Yella & Arabian Prince together into a fascinating tapestry of collaborations, collective vision; beef and now acknowledgement that N.W.A was one of the most talented groups in Hip-Hop history.
