The Best of N.W.A. [CD/DVD] [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
The world's most volatile hip-hop group gets compiled again with the 2006 release The Best of N.W.A. The straight-ahead collection differs just a little from 1996's Greatest Hits, although it does contain better liner notes and a worthwhile essay from hip-hop historian Soren Baker.

Plus, they're the best tracks. What The Best of N.W.A. does right is scatter the Compton tracks about the collection and make the whole thing flow with a running order that feels right.

Priority could really do the world a favor and release something like The Best of the Other Two Albums, but seeing how that's not going to happen, this is the most convenient way to cover the rest of their career once you've done the necessary groundwork and devoured their masterpiece. [Making the collection more enticing for the longtime fan. The Best of N.W.A. was also made available in a limited edition with a bonus DVD featuring the group's few videos and some archival interview footage.]
