Straight Outta Compton (the megamix)

In honor of the huge success that Straight Outta Compton had on it's opening weekend, I offer the Straight Outta Compton megamix which features several of NWA & Eazy-E's biggest hits.  The movie features what many of us old-school cats already knew... NWA broke down the doors with their raw & honest lyrics about the streets where they lived. The music was a voice that was parallel to the experiences by millions around the world. The struggle that Ice Cube, Dr Dre, Eazy-E & company had in Compton was commonplace in areas throughout the United States & the rest of the world. The music brought together a generation of people, regardless of race or "coastal affiliation." Although NWA reps the west coast, the message resinated with youth from the east coast and midwest as well. NWA is possibly one of the most influential groups ever to bless the stage (along with Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions). 

You like NWA?? Then please take a minute to Straight Outta Compton megamix. It is completely raw & unedited lyrically (just like NWA would want it)... meaning there is no clean version. If you like it, you can download it for free right here. This is my dedication to a great group of street kids from Compton who stood up to everything that was corrupt.
