1988 | N.W.A releases their first full-fledged album, "Straight Outta Compton." Taking the hardcore sonic attack of Public Enemy and merging it with brutally explicit tales of the crime-ridden streets of South Central Los Angeles; it becomes a watershed moment for 'gangsta rap' and fully opens the door for West Coast rappers to gain national attention.
This week's music intro comes from an up and coming group known as The S.O.G. Crew. The group has recently signed to Universal Music Group and has just dropped a remix to their song "Welcome To My World". Take a listen and let me know in the comments whether you like the group.
1993 | Dr. Dre protege Snoop Doggy Dogg releases his highly-anticipated solo debut, "DoggyStyle" for Death Row Records. The album is a monstrous hit, becoming the first debut album to enter the Billboard chart at #1. Unfortunately, Snoop is implicated in the shooting death of a Long Beach man and is charged with second-degree murder. Surprisingly, this does nothing to slow his skyrocketing popularity.
Not sure why but back in the day we all crushed on Snoop but Dr. Dre does something for me! He sneaks up on you. He has his grown man on now ..and I like it! He is handsome, not a pretty and he definitely make you wonder . He got that edginess. Don't sleep on Dr. Dre. NWA ORIGINAL
