- The Untold Story of Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur, and the Birth of West Coast Rap
- By: Ben Westhoff
- Narrated by: JD Jackson
- Length: 15 hrs and 17 mins
Amid rising gang violence, the crack epidemic, and police brutality, a group of unlikely voices cut through the chaos of late 1980s Los Angeles: N.W.A. Led by a drug dealer, a glammed-up producer, and a high school kid, N.W.A. gave voice to disenfranchised African Americans across the country. And they quickly redefined pop culture across the world. Their names remain as popular as ever: Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, and Ice Cube. Dre soon joined forces with Suge Knight to create the combustible Death Row Records.
Excellent, rap needs more of these!

A well written story, not just for Rap fans
An amazingly researched biography. Well told and wriiten in a way that does not assume the reader has knowledge of rap music. The narrator keeps a good pace ,though not monotone, and uses appropriate voices to help distinguish whos is speaking. If you like biographys that include modern experience, i would recommend this title.
