Review: If you don't own this album already, now's the time to make amends and get hold of one of the great totems of hip-hop culture. They don't come more classic than this - Eazy E, Ice Cube, MC Ren and Dre created the blueprint for gangsta rap in 1988 and blew the game wide open. More than 30 years on, Dre's beats still sound insanely fresh, matching the MCs blow for blow in style, funk and humour. The picture they paint of America still holds weight today, and the 10 perfectly formed tracks will be lodged in your brain after just one listen. What more do you need to know? NWA - none tougher.
