695-

7 Oct

Money changes everything and in the case of NWA, it breaks up the band. N.W.A. (aka Niggaz With Attitude) were the biggest rap group around when they hit the scene. They were trendsetters in gangster rap. But the group crashed and burned thanks to the music biz. Some members decided that they wanted to leave their record company, Ruthless records. And their fellow band member Eazy-E helped them do it. Oh and he took their royalties on the way out. That began one of music’s ugliest feuds of all-time. Dr. Dre and Ice Cube would unleash some verbal venom over the years that could not be matched. Eazy E tried but his former bandmates ripped him to shreds with their words. And also in music videos like Dr. Dre’s “Dre Day” video which included the character “Sleazy E”. Sadly, the feud would only end in 1995 with Eazy E’s passing from AIDS. The members of NWA would reunite for the soundtrack of the movie “Next Friday” and the song would make peace. But still the story of N.W.A. remains one of their ugliest breakups in music history.
