Though original NWA member Ice Cube would be well on his way to a successful solo career, Easy E would later pass away from AIDS, and Dr. Dre would be a year or so away from rolling out THE CHRONIC, 1991's NIGGAZ4LIFE is still a terrific collection of street gems. There is no denying the ruggedness of tracks like "Real Niggaz Don't Die," "Alwayz Into Somethin'," and the title track. Having Dr. Dre behind the boards with DJ Yella makes for a slamming combination of energy and grit. Though this album would be NWA's last as a group, it helped NWA strengthen the role the group played in bringing West Coast-style hip-hop to the masses. Some of the other tracks to check out are "Appetite for Destruction," "Real Niggaz," and the comic-sexual "She Swallowed It." NIGGAZ4LIFE is a classic.
