In 1987, a group of West Coast MCs calling themselves N.W.A. released their multi-platinum album, Straight Outta Compton. The release sparked massive controversy in (and out of) the Los Angeles area and even reached Congress as a hot button topic. Since then, the genre of gangsta rap has been admonished by many of our country’s local governments, but the music style has never gone away. Having brought a flair of gangsta rap with him on both of his first two releases, West Coast native The Game looks to do a little more of the same on his forthcoming studio album, L.A.X.. Though it lives and breathes true West Coast rap, N*gga Wit An Attitude will not
be on the album.
