Something which cheered me up earlier today was this ‘explicit content only’ version of N.W.A.’s seminal Straight Outta Compton.
I haven’t really listened to the album at all for a while, though I did have a brief rekindling when I wrote my dissertation a few years ago, but it’s still up there in my list of generally great albums. Harsh, abrasive, aggressive, crude, and catchy and funky as fuck :)
Even this version with just the swear words has a certain flavour to it. Though that’s probably because I know the original, and this is funny to me. If you don’t know the original, or dislike hip-hop, probably best not to listen. All it’ll do is fuel your misconceptions about the lyrical content of the genre and you’ll end up ever more mistaken than you currently are :)
Fun fun fun!
