Thanks to the smash hit biopic Straight Outta Compton, N.W.A. is all over the charts.
The gansta rap pioneer's 1988 LP Straight Outta Compton was the fourth most bought and streamed album in the land last week, and its lead single (from 27 years ago) Straight Outta Compton just debuted at number 38 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
This marks the first time an N.W.A. track has ever cracked the top 40. Which is surprising. We figured at least their profanity free hit (we thought)'Express Yourself' would have charted way back when.
