One of the few songs I like on Niggaz4Life which overall was shit. Cube's importance to the group was immediately felt the moment he left.

It's amazing how many of my white friends loved that album.

Dre had great production but I still listen to cube almost daily. His first few solo records are amazing. I have seen him live twice once in 92 and once in 93.

Niggaz4Life was horrible. It was like it really was the album for White kids to be able to say they listen to NWA. As mentioned, you could feel the loss of 'Cube' for sure.

***** please... both NIGGAZ4LIFE & 100 MILES AND RUNNING is their best shit period. Dre stepped up production wise and even rapping wise, in fact everyone did. Straight Outta Compton was great but is mostly awed at for STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, FUCK THE POLICE (especially) and GANGSTA GANGSTA.

Yep. I think Niggaz4Life is actually superior to Straight Outta Compton. The beats and music are so great on it that I really didn't miss Ice Cube at all.

Niggaz4Life still holds up after all these years too. Sounds like it could have been produced recently.

Wondering if this means having security actually stand in the back of the theater while the movie is showing.

100 Miles was little more than a thrown together commercial for the full-length N4L and whereas SOC was politically/ socially charged and well-written throughout, there is plenty of filler on N4L which wastes too much time on empty, silly songs like Findem, Fuckum and Flee and lame, graphic skits on fellatio and the art of sucking dick. That may have contributed to Cube's leaving and hooking up with the Bomb Squad because his solo debut is a superior album in every way and feels like a natural progression from his writing on Straight Outta Compton.

I'm pretty sure Cube left NWA because he was getting fucked out of his money by Eazy-E & Jerry Heller.

Yes, I said may have contributed on top of that whole fiasco.

100 Miles and Running was a great song along with Appetite for Destruction, Alwayz Into Something, and Dayz of Way Back.

Real Niggaz Don't Die still holds up. All the songs with niggaz in the title are good.

Why do I feel uncomfortable writing and checking the spelling of the song titles in this post lol.

Totally agree with this.

NIGGAZ4LIFE and Eazy-Duz-It (Eazy-E's first solo album) are the best albums they did. I always thought Straight Outta Compton was overrated when you take the entire album into account.

None of the reviews or articles I've read on this movie have the courage to tell the reader what "N.W.A." stands for.

According to IMDB the original cut of the film was 3 hours and 30 minutes.

One song I bet a million dollars they won't play in this hagiography is "Fat Girl"--their most humane and tolerant song ever.

I know Chuck D and Flavor Flav were cast. I would assume the Bomb Squad would be as well?

Personally, I'm a little miffed that Bone thugs n Harmony have no role, being as they were Eazy-E's major proteges!

I like NWA, but I always thought Public Enemy was better. I have mixed feelings on the last NWA album, like everyone else seems to. Great production, some real high points, and lots of filler. But I do like Automobile for some reason... Eazy-E even takes a strong anti-rape stance at the beginning!

one of my favorites


"Fat Girl"
(feat. Eazy-E & Ron-De-Vu)

(Fat girl!)
(You're a fat girl)
(Fat...fat...fat fat fat fat girl) [x2]

(It's funky fresh Eazy E) new kid on tha block
And already got a fat girl on my jock
Now my story's kinda simple, so please take it simple
As I tell you a tale bout this big fat pimple
I was chillin on the ave, drinkin some booze
Saw a fatty comin my way, so what was I to do?
I busted a U, went tha other way again
but forgot that tha Avenue was a dead end
I turned around, here she came, stride for stride
funky fat like that, bout two thirty-five
Stampede was rushin, I double looked
and she had more chins than a chinese phonebook
Five four three ugly as can be, she said

[Ron-de-vu]
Hello Eazy E. Do you remember me? (I said no)
Huhu yes you do suga
My name is Bertha but you can call me booga
Remember the time when you were drunk at a party
We was slow dancin, give ya all this body

[Eazy-E]
When she said that she loved me, I was in shock
Oh my God got a fat girl on my jock

[CHORUS:]
(I got a fat girl on my jock) (Fat girl) (Got a fat girl on my jock)

She gave me tha grin, I showed tha frown
and with a bare hug picked me off tha ground
Squeezion me tight, atttempted to bug me
Grabbed me by tha rear, said (Love me, hug me!)
I was hell, victim of a scandal
coz this girl's too much for E to handle
Broke tha bee's grip, started to run
Back to tha crib, grabbed tha elephant gun
She's grubbin, thighs rubbin in a hot pursuit
I loaded up tha gun bout ready to shoot
She kept on comin because of addiction
Legs on fire because of friction
My gun broke, now I was doomed
Dropped tha double barrel, grabbed tha harpoon
As I swung, tha fat girl fell
Lyin on tha ave just like a beach whale
That's tha story, it's quite ill
and all fat girls y'all besta chill
All overweight freaks stay off my block
Cause it's eerie to have a fat girl on your jock

[CHORUS]

I like NWA, but I always thought Public Enemy was better. I have mixed feelings on the last NWA album, like everyone else seems to. Great production, some real high points, and lots of filler. But I do like Automobile for some reason... Eazy-E even takes a strong anti-rape stance at the beginning!
Public Enemy never got the love from the public as they deserved.

Maybe the Pro Black lyrics turned some people off.

I hope the D.O.C. will be covered in this movie.

D.O.C. is listed in the cast of characters, but not sure how much he'll be in it. He certainly deserves to be.

Here's the only deleted song from his debut, called Bridgette, in case you are a fan and never heard it. NWA has little cameos in it doing background vocals and such:
