The Compton Super Group Is Even More Influential Than You May Have Realized

Hip Hop is changing history and thanks to Rukkus.com you can trace the musical history all the way to the 1980s starting with gangsta rap group N.W.A.. Whether it’s through mentorship or record labels, N.W.A’s influence is prevalent in Hip Hop today. For instance, The D.O.C., who was a major creative force behind N.W.A., was a part owner of Death Row Records and from that record label blossomed the late Nate Dogg, Tupac Shakur, and Snoop Dogg.

Check out the infographic of this musical family tree that all started with N.W.A.
