Top Ten N.W.A. Songs


The Top Ten

1 Straight Outta Compton

straight out of compton is the most hardcore and true songs of nwa's legacy

Ultimately the best NWA song of all time, Ice Cube killed it!

Ice Cube tell 'em where you're from!

Best N.W.a song, even getting a movie based off it this year.

2 F*** the Police

The most real song made by NWA. Telling the story of what it truly was to be a African American in compton during this time and also the problem of racial profiling

One of the most angry and controversial songs in history, this was the song that put the group on the map as well as getting them a warning letter from the F.B.I. the song opens with the killer flow of Ice Cube going against the L.A.P.D. next Ren goes in with his vigorous flow targeting the police as racist and unfair, then closing with Eazy's killer flow humiliating the police all over.

Thank you for your own risk and achieve objectives and is not a good day

Their best song by far

3 Express Yourself

This song, unlike the groups tracks puts away the violent and vulgar lyrics and just straight up tells you to be how you want to be. This was Dr. Dre's first solo rap featured on the 'Straight Outta Compton' album. This song is a feel good track that you can't help but sing along to. Undoubtedly one of the groups best tracks.






there best piece ever!

amazing lyrics, great inspiring song, gets you in a good mood - roblist

One of the lyrically best songs by this kick ass group!

4 Gangsta, Gangsta

This track is one of the groups greatest with a great catchy hook that gets you hyped. The song features cube showing off his brilliant lyrical credibility and skills, the song ends with Eazy-E closing with a smooth and easy flow. This was track three on Straight Outta Compton.

This is way better than Express Yourself

Great Song... My all time favorite.

This is just amazing

5 100 Miles and Runnin'

This was the groups lead track for their EP right after Cube left and having awesome verses from Dre, Ren and Eazy talking all the usual controversial hardcore rap lyrics tearing up the song. It was also placed on the groups greatest hits.

A very catchy and well produced rap song

This song is lit, but it got killed by ice cube's diss to the N.W.A (No Vaseline)

Best song they did after Ice Cube's departure

6 Dopeman

A bass heavy track written by Ice Cube, featuring verses from Cube and closed by Eazy. The track refers to Eazy's former job of crack dealing and talks about the way crack on the streets L. A is.

Bass heavy song, its amazing combination with Ice Cube and Eazy

So so real. Every word.

Well I'm the dopeman yeah boy wear corduroy money up to here but unemployed eazys part is my favorite in this song

7 I Ain't tha 1

Dopest song NWA ever did, or should I say Cube and Dre ever did. Beat is super dope, as are Cubes lyrics. One shot kill right here. True gangsta classic... the Scarface remake is dope too.

Casual fan above me

8 8 Ball

The most autobiographical track that the group ever cut and I must say that it is a great one

Eazy being eazy makes for a classic

Remix of one of N.W. A's first songs, this is maybe the best storytelling rap they've ever done, with cube writting lyrics for this easy-e solo track explaining life in the hood one of their best.

Eazy-E is a genius. - EMBIGNASPAC

9 Alwayz Into Somethin'

This should be WAY higher, some of Dre's best producing ever, and also one of the first tracks to use the "G Funk" beat

I was expecting this to be #1, Seems like too many lil Wayne fans are voting here.

HOW IS THIS 12 I think it is better than express yourself - LegitGames12

This song song should be in top 3 because MC REN get so deep in this and this is the best.Others are also awesome. Just wanna say all songs of NWA are the best.

10 Appetite for Destruction

Dre Is Good Ren Is Great But Eazy Kills - LegitGames12

My favorite - NN02

Raw Production & Raw Rap styles

Dr. Dre was at his peak of production before he started using ghost producers. MC Ren's best was in this album & Eazy E hit his stride as an MC. Actually writing more of his own. Eazy E Was at his best on this album & the following album & E.P. after.

Even with out Ice Cube EFIL4ZAGGIN was great.

Also it should get bonus points for being over 2 decades old it is hands down the best hip hop track in GTAV.

The Contenders

11 Parental Discretion Iz Advised

I Like the song very much, because the whole Group raps in it with an nice Flow and the beat is also very nice and stimuating, exspecially the breaks sometimes.

The Piano at the end of the song gives it a very good chillout ending.

This should be much higher on the List.

12 If It Ain't Ruff

This was Ren's solo track spitting fire all the way through, featuring the memorable hook 'If It Ain't Ruff, It ain't me'. It was featured on the groups debut album Straight Outta Compton was produced by Dr. Dre.

This should definitely be higher than express yourself

13 Real N*****

A hardcore dark fast paced track on the N*****4Life album in 1991. This song has no hook but has Ren and Dre going back and forth with hardcore hot verses, at some points dissing former member Ice Cube.

The groups comeback single after reforming a few years after the death of Eazy. This song opens with a killer hook then continuing with verses from Cube, Ren, Dre and Snoop Dogg. This song was going to be featured on the groups cancelled 'Not These N***** Again' album.
