Happy N.W.A. Day!
Time to date myself. I still remember when rap was just in its infancy, bubbling up in the streets and developments in the South Bronx and Queensbridge. When I was in high school I first heard of this band...this group...this posse of guys called N.W.A. and it blew me away. We were already listening to the Beastie Boys, Run DMC, Public Enemy, Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie etc but N.W.A. was something different. It was the first time I was kind of scared of a music group and I was hooked. I wonder what Eazy-E would be doing now if he were still alive. I think he would have been great doing infomercials or something. Maybe a guest judge on Project Runway. Or maybe a sweet "Straight Outta Comcast" ad.
