Greatest Hits [Bonus Track] [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
N.W.A.'s career isn't necessarily one that lends itself well to anthologies. Though they had important singles, especially in the underground hip-hop community in the late '80s, they never received any support from radio or MTV, which meant they never had any official "hits." Instead, their albums were more important, popular, and influential, than their singles, even if individual tracks -- "Fuck tha Police," "Straight Outta Compton," "Gangsta Gangsta," "Express Yourself" -- became the focus of attention.

It's nice to have the good tracks isolated from the group's latter-day efforts, but Greatest Hits is unnecessary -- all you need is Straight Outta Compton. [Greatest Hits was reissued in 2003 and includes two bonus tracks: "Chin Check" and "Hello."]
