20th Anniversary Edition Of NWA's "Straight Outta

On December 4, Capitol/Priority will release an expanded 20th Anniversary Edition of "Straight Outta Compton" in CD, vinyl and digital formats.

The commemorative release adds five bonus tracks, including a live version of "Compton's N The House," covers of Straight Outta Compton tracks by Snoop Dogg and C-Murder, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Mack 10, and WC, and a new package essay by music writer and author Soren Baker.

N.W.A.'s first album, N.W.A and the Posse, was released in 1987, but it is 1988's Straight Outta Compton that has endured as the group's genre-defining masterpiece. From the propulsive groove of "Express Yourself" to the title track's battering statement of purpose, nothing had prepared listeners for this album's uncompromising power.

"The listening experience," Cheo Coker wrote in The Vibe History of Hip-Hop, "was akin to being wired into a sensory camera, where you could smell the room, sense the bullets whizzing by your head, and feel your adrenaline pump as the police raced you around the block."
