The world's most dangerous group. N.W.A. literally had to fight for their right to express themselves. Not even threats from the FBI could keep them from publicly indicting the powers that be or calling out racist cops. These Compton boys were vicious, unapologetic, and vividly outspoken. - anthonybecerra831
The Beastie Boys might be the best rao group of all time, but they wouldn't exist if it wasn't for N.W.A. introducing the world to rap. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
