N.W.A., Niggaz4Life (1991)

Label: Ruthless/Priority

Nas: “They had already caught the controversy and in Niggaz4Life, it was like, ‘What do you do now?’ People want to ban you, people want to censor you. The group probably single-handedly made the government invent the censor logo advisory stamp on rap albums. That was a challenge and I like to see people grow and how are they going to manage now that Ice Cube had left. It’s just a lot on their backs and they rose to the occasion and they killed it.”
