N.W.A., one of the most historic Hip-Hop groups from the ’90s, have been honored by the National Recording Registry. Their debut album, Straight Outta Compton, will be added to the registry by the Library of Congress alongside classic records from David Bowie, Sister Sledge, Eagles, Judy Garland and more (you can see the full list of new additions here).
Two years ago, the group — led by members Dr. Dre and Ice Cube — created a film about their story as artists. In 2016, they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
In their heyday, the Compton-based collective represented cultural and historical relations in America’s society. The group will forever be known for standing up for what they believe in when it comes to racial injustice and police brutality.
