Released in 1988, "Straight Out of Compton" is ground zero for gangsta rap and set the template for an entire generation of West Coast rap. This is the album with their defining songs, "F*** Tha Police" and the title track. After those two epochal tracks, the album runs a little thin. You have to wonder why a group with Ice Cube and Easy-E in it would let MC Ren (who?) and Dre rap. It also leaves a conflicted legacy, as the vulgarity, misogyny and "bitches and money" philosophy that still defines a lot of hip-hop was enshrined here. People can pretend like lyrical content doesn't matter, but it can make for an ugly and unpleasant listening, despite its undeniable impact.
