Straight outta Compton - big screen version

N.W.A. film in the works

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3i37b1b301206de33fcb83dc8363024f41

Andrea Berloff, who wrote Oliver Stone's true-life movie "World Trade Center," is tackling the story of seminal rap group N.W.A.


WORD :thumb up:
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Word, indeed.

NWA was one of the most powerful musical acts of modern time. One could argue whether Gangsta Rap helped or hurt the genre, but these guys couldn't have had any idea they were kicking off a movement that's lasted 20+ years.

Gangsta buried the lyracist in favor of a more raw, more simplified presentation. In doing so, it reached urban youths the way previous MC's couldn't. Plus, it meant something to West Coasters that these guys were from the area and were developing a unique voice that could only come from SoCal in the 80's.

I much preferred others (Public Enemy, Tribe, DeLa) to NWA, but there was a time that having "Straight Outta Compton" in the car was as common as having a spare tire. Of the soloists, Ice Cube went on to outshine EZ and Dre with Death Certificate, Amerikkka's Most Wanted, etc. We all know Dre's success in discovering and producing acts like Snoop Dogg and Eminem.

Yeah, gonna have to see this at some point. Wouldn't mind seeing them portrayed as a team before they split up.

I still find it kinda funny that Ice Cube makes children's movies. It's all about appealing to the masses and making that money now.

I will be turning this into a thread on late 80's / early 90's era rappers and where are they now...

Biggest, most shocking rise to extraordinary fame. Still can't believe this the same person who played hype-girl on Naughty By Nature albums.

I like to think of myself as enlightened, but female MCs are all aweful, as are those in a hype roles.

Lil Kim, missy e, latifah.... all she did was get bubba elected.

too much screech in the flow. as smopoth as milwaukee's best. novelty acts.

Eazy was the best of all of them

his bitchslap of Dre with "real muthaph---in' g's" is epic. Plus he was the one that discovered and got Bone Thugs signed.

also, is it true he was at the Eric Metcalf game against the Steelers in '93? I heard he was in pound for that game.

Tough to define, so I'll assume '90's West Coast rappers dealing with explicit lyrics and very mature subject matter. Too Short was so raw, really liked him. Does Cypress Hill count? Wore out their first album.

Of course any group that busts out "gansta gansta" has to be tops. How can something so raw be so smoof?

But I have soft spot for Geto Boys and King Tee , and Ice T started the shit into mainstream with 6 in the morn before he tried to mix message and get paid.

Can we also have a raunchy sex rapper thread that starts with Campbell and leads up to Three 6 mafia ? I just heard Bitch Better Have my money by AMG not long ago. Classic.

+1
Bitch Better Have My Money is sublime tunage.

I downloaded MC Breed's (RIP) "Ain't No Future In Yo Frontin'" and have been rocking it violently again for the last three years. I dare call it my favorite rap song of all time. My take is that song introduced the "gangsta crawl" high-end melody tracking that Dre ended up turning out X100 on The Chronic. Breed predated that by about a year.

King Tee! I wore out Act a fool way back when. Loved it.
The D.O.C. was another favorite, don't know how "gangsta" he was though.
Schooly D helped gangst rap along too
Even though they were East Coast, Boogie Down Productions had the gangsat vibe in Criminal Minded.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base.

I can never keep Schooly D & Spoony G straight butt I don't see credible EC gangsta till really Smalls.

BDP was always that cerebral shit to me like PE & Nas. KRS One has to be top 5 all time.

I miss the production hip hop like brand Nubian and shit. Wish hip hop could break the formula of pop hip hop and screaching gospel females.

Agreed, the East Coast rapper who incorporated WC gangsta was Biggie. Not to say old schoolers like EPMD and Gangstarr we're rapping about the streets, but WC gangsta had a more numb attitude toward violence. For old school EC's like EPMD, gun references were used for metaphore. WC gangsta used guns for "this is what my life is really like."

Loved Brand Nubian until they went hard-edge without Grand Puba, one of the greatest forgotten MC's. All for One and Reel to Reel are still in my tape deck from time to time.

Another branch would be the 5-percents. All I know about Islam, I learned from hip-hop acts who dropped preachy joints. Really bizarre, even at the time. That shit had no place once WC gangsta hit the scene.

"Turn This Mutha Out" MC Hammer, yes.

Everything else, no.

Giving CDT points for participation, I don't think he's got a D-Nice album sitting next his Acid Bath disc.

lol.

I like some hip hop. I have the Dre's The Chronic, because it was issued to all suburban kids in the 90's. For the most part Gangsta rap never did anything for me. Cypress Hill(great name btw) was great, but like said above i'm not really sure where they fit in.

Too Short was more bitches and ho's than gangsta but he was great, possibly the best delivery in rap, so good choice for sure.

Once Scott La Rock was gunned down, that's when KRS-One started dropping knowledge. Criminal Minded, while not totally gangsta, supplied a blueprint to gangsta rap.

And to maybe answer the question of "What happened?"


I think they grew up. Not downplaying gangster rap at all. Naturally, most people just can't stay gangsta rap forever. It's for the youth.
