The controversial rap outfit's legacy is revisited...

A series of reissues marking the legacy of rap legends NWA are to be released later this month.

NWA's seminal 1988 album 'Straight Outta Compton' is re-issued on September 23 with four bonus tracks - 'Express Yourself (Extended Mix)', 'Bonus Beats', 'Straight Outta Compton (extended mix)' and 'A Bitch Is A Bitch'. On the same day their album 'Efil4Zaggin With 100 Miles & Runnin'' (or 'Niggaz4life') is also reissued with bonus tracks.

In addition, a new compilation album, 'The NWA Legacy 2' is also to be released. This record features NWA songs, as well as solo material from the founding members, Easy-E, MC Ren, Ice Cube and Dr Dre, attempting to document the influence the group had on rap music.
