Straight Outta Compton [1988]

Straight Outta Compton remains, nearly 30 years later, the quintessential gangsta rap album, not to mention one of the loudest, most fervently apolitical chronicles of street culture - all made in an era when rap's voice wasn't yet magnified by the pop culture megaphone. But despite not addressing politics specifically, it still somehow managed to take on the racial and social issues of its day, addressing them, appropriately, like a bull in a china shop. Los Angeles, and hip-hop, were never the same. [laweekly]
