N.W.A. vs. the FBI

In response to N.W.A.’s controversial classic “F--k Tha Police,” Milt Ahlerich, an assistant director of the FBI, took the unusual step of writing a sternly worded letter to the group’s label, advising the rappers that "advocating violence and assault is wrong and we in the law enforcement community take exception to such action." This letter can still be seen at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
