In Compton, California in 1986, Eazy-E is a drug dealer, Dr. Dre, is an aspiring disc jockey, and Ice Cube is a young rapper. Intrigued by Cube’s “reality raps” reflecting on the crime, gang violence, and police harassment that they and other African Americans encounter daily, Dre convinces Eazy to fund a startup record label, Ruthless Records, with Dre as record producer. When their song “Boyz-n-the-Hood” is rejected by a New York rap group, Dre convinces Eazy to perform it instead. It becomes a local hit, and Eazy, Cube, Dre, DJ Yella, and MC Ren form the group N.W.A (“Niggaz Wit Attitudes”).

Eazy accepts Jerry Heller’s offer to manage N.W.A and co-run Ruthless, and Priority Records offers N.W.A a record deal. While recording their debut album, Straight Outta Compton (1988), the group is harassed by police due to their race and appearance, prompting Cube to compose a diss track towards the police. The album becomes a controversial hit due to its profanity and violent lyrics, and the group’s style is dubbed gangsta rap by the press. During a 1989 concert tour, the FBI demands N.W.A to stop performing “Fuck tha Police”, because it encourages violence against law enforcement. Police in Detroit forbid them from performing the song, and a riot breaks out when they perform it anyway and are arrested.
