  N.W.A : Straight Outta Compton (Clean) - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Straight Outta Compton wasn't quite the first gangsta rap album, but it was the first one to find a popular audience, and its sensibility virtually defined the genre from its 1988 release on.
But although Straight Outta Compton has its own share of posturing, it still sounds refreshingly uncalculated because of its irreverent, gonzo sense of humor, still unfortunately rare in hardcore rap.
It's impossible to overstate the enduring impact of Straight Outta Compton; as polarizing as its outlook may be, it remains an essential landmark, one of hip-hop's all-time greatest.

 Fiction Collective 2 -- A Literary Alternative Since 1974   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Straight Outta Compton is about living large, living in the fast lane.
It raps to its readers about being fl, being born and raised in the L.A. ghetto, being so-called "Niggaz 4-Life," being sweet on fl life (for those in it, the beat goes on).
Straight Outta Compton samples from all aspects of fl life in its search to have its characters find what rapper Heavy D. would call a, "Peaceful Journey." It wasn't just written; it was mixed by a DJ, and the result is hyped!

 Bill Cosby: Straight Outta Compton
Straight Outta of Compton was new, and hardcore, loved by many, and hated equally by many for its gun, drugs, gangs, and sex approach in hip hop.
Cosby whom I now dub, “Gangsta Bill”, like NWA with Straight Outta Compton before him, is getting national attention, critical acclaim, and vicious criticism for his straight up, direct and real comments on the need for fl folks to look at self, fix self and grow self.
Although Compton wasn’t his first “Call Out Session”, we all remember the remarks at the 2004 Brown Vs Board of Education NAACP anniversary celebration that touched of the firestorm around Gangsta Bill, to me the symbolic nature of Compton can’t be overlook.

Given the album's sheer force, the production is surprisingly spare, even a little low-budget, the background "music" is mostly DJ scratches and a drum machine, plus a few sampled horn blasts and bits of funk guitar.
Although they were as much a reaction to pop-friendly rap, Straight Outta Compton's insistent claims of reality ring a little hollow, since the lyrics hardly ever depict consequences.
There are several undistinguished misfires during the second half of the CD, but they aren't nearly awkward enough to detract from the album's overall magnitude.
