Including testimony from Ice Cube and Yella from N.W.A, former police officers from the Compton gang unit and lifelong Compton citizens, this latest mini-documentary from Noisey explores the impact of 1988’s seminal hip-hop record “Fuck Tha Police”. The doc sheds light on some real-life moments portrayed in the recent F. Gary Gray-headed biopic Straight Outta Compton, while also providing visual references of some of Compton’s most iconic locations, and the gangs that inhabited them in the late ’80s and early ’90s.

Now read about the conspiracy behind the death of N.W.A member Eazy-E.
