N.W.A. & THE POSSE - Self-Titled LP

SGD 46.00

Featuring works from N.W.A, Eazy-E, and The Fila Fresh Crew among others. It was released on November 6th, 1987, and every track on here was produced by Dr. Dre. The album had two singles. Those would be Eazy-E’s debut single, “Boyz-n-the-Hood”, and N.W.A’s debut single, “Panic Zone”. Among the first gangsta rap albums and among the first well-made in the West Coast, this comp is based on classic cuts such as the aforementioned "Boyz-N-The Hood" by Eazy-E, "8-Ball" & "Dopeman": the latter produced by Yella and Dr. Dre, with a catchy hook, timely delivery by Eazy-E & Ice Cube, and with the bridge preceding the third verse which is one of the very first examples of g-funk. Union of dark and violent themes and hard and tight rhythms, the LP is surrounded by a party mood and doesn't get taken too seriously, despite some lyrics playing against the album, such as "Drink It Up" (mockery of "Twist and Shout" by the Beatles) and "Fat Girl" with Ron-De-Vu. Recommended to NWA fans.
