In the name of all that is holy in pop culture, let glorious works of art like the video above echo the requests of every living person: Please, world. Never stop recreating things using Grand Theft Auto. The practice has yielded impressive reimaginings of classic moments from Star Wars, King of the Hill, Breaking Bad, and even Friends

With all eyes rightly locked on the musical canon and continued legacy of N.W.A. in the wake of Straight Outta Compton's explosive box office and critical showing this weekend, some genius decided to give the iconic N.W.A. track of the same name the GTA treatment. True GTA heads will note that Lance "Ryder" Wilson, a fan favorite in the series, was presumably modeled after the late Eazy-E.

Though this recreation, like the others, isn't a shot-by-shot emulation of its source material, it's still a thrilling journey through the awesomeness of video game art by way of a legendary N.W.A. track. Revisit the original video below:
