With all of the success of the “Straight Outta Compton” movie as it earned record breaking sales for a R rated movie, it brought awareness to the inner workings of the music business and the individuals involved within the actual movie. And in result of the success, N.W.A is now a household name once again.
And that’s also with the original Straight Outta Compton record returning back to the charts, selling an amazing 10,000+ in its first week. We’re not sure if it’s because of the onset of a new fanbase after watching the recent biopic, or with the release of Dre’s long-awaited record in 16 years Compton. Or whether if it’s old fans reliving their nostalgic past with N.W.A’s storied history; regardless of the outcome, it’s a win-win situation for hip-hop fans. In better news, however, the D.O.C.’s voice has made a comeback.
Yup — the D.O.C’s voice has returned while incarcerated and the Texas native-by-way-of-L.A. announced through Twitter that his voice is back and returning to music. I guess that all of the good mojo and momentum is thrown in N.W.A’s direction these days.
In the height of N.W.A’s past success, there seems to be no difference within today’s popularity of the group. It’s safe to say that their message is still relevant. In hip-hop, the music and its message may be the biggest voice in spreading awareness of its culture.
If you’re a fan of N.W.A. and D.O.C make sure to SHARE this with fellow fans of the music and the N.W.A. It’s safe to say after the release of the biopic, N.W.A. now might be the biggest movement in hip-hop history.
