I'm super excited to be uploading this lesson today on an iconic rap group that pretty much started it all with gangster rap. They also set the stage for West Coast hip hop, and they even had a name as being the rawest rap/ hip hop group around back in their heyday. Today, I will be showing you how to draw N.W.A. step by step. The group is made up of five rappers all from Compton, California. The band's name is an abbreviation of 'Niggaz Wit Attitudes'. I know that doesn't sound politically correct, but it's just what the full name of the group was. The founder of N.W.A. was none other than Eazy-E. He is seen in the middle with the sunglasses. Other members are Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, MC Ren and DJ Yella. They had a ton of songs that where incredible. Their most popular albums was Straight Outta Compton and Eazy-Duz-It. Obviously I'm gonna say that some of my favorite songs on the Straight Outta Compton album was "Straight Outta Compton" and "Fu@k tha Police". There is a movie coming out that is already getting rave reviews called 'Straight Outta Compton' and that is going to be in theaters August 14 so if you are a fan of N.W.A., I suggest that you make plans to go see the film. I do hope there are fans out there that visit Dragoart who enjoy this group. Eazy-E who passed away in 1995 is considered a legend because he is known as being the Godfather of Gansta Rap. He was also known to be one of the most controversial icons in gansta rap. R.I.P. Eazy-E and for those of you who will be tackling this lesson, have fun.
