Docs That Rock

The World’s Most Dangerous Group

There are acts that break through musically, by selling truckloads of records and/or through critical applause and then there are the few groups that also change history. Thinking about such acts in the last twenty years results in a slim list: Nirvana, Britney, NSYNC (the whole bubblegum phenomenon really) and NWA. From the lite rap days of the Wreckin Cru (see the hilarious excerpt below) all the way to an FBI crackdown and nationwide outrage over “gangsta rap”, NWA and their 1988 smash Straight Out of Compton changed rap, the music business and society. Now that’s entertainment! The latest VH1 Rock Doc portrays the birth of the band with rarely-seen footage. There’s the juicy story of how Eazy-E plotted to kill Suge Knight, among others. The doc features new interviews with Ice Cube, DJ Yella, Eazy-E’s widow Tomica Woods-Wright, and former manager Jerry Heller. And Chris Rock takes a star turn as the narrator. It premieres tomorrow night at 11 pm Eastern.
