N.W.A (Niggaz Wit Attitudes also Niggaz With Attitude) were an American rap group from Compton, California, and its members were Eazy-E, DJ Yella, MC Ren, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. It was first managed by Jerry Heller.

The rap group started in 1986 and lasted until 1991. The group originated gangsta rap and had lyrics unique to gangsta rap that were very explicit, violent, misogynist and sexist, which made them controversial. Their controversies included being banned from many American radio stations and one of their most controversial songs "Fuck tha Police" (A song meant to insult police) got them in trouble with the law. Many people believed that N.W.A glamorized gang violence, street thugs and the violent lifestyle among many people in Compton.
