On August 8th, 1988, one of the most iconic albums of all time was released. N.W.A.’s “Straight Outta Compton” hit store shelves, 28 years ago today. The album was released on Easy-E’s Ruthless Records label, with Dr. Dre and DJ Yella taking care of production and included all members on vocals, including Ice Cube.
Without question, the album has stood the test of time. In November of 2015, the album went 3x platinum in the U.S., with over 3 million copies sold. Much of that success was because of the “Straight Outta Compton” movie, which opened the door to a new generation of N.W.A. fans.
Congrats to N.W.A. and happy anniversary.
