Eazy-E, Str8 Off tha Streets of Muthaph--kin' Compton

After years of clowning at the hands of Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Death Row, Eazy was looking to make a comeback with this sophomore album. He died from AIDS-related complications in 1995 before he could finish it, but the LP, released later that year, showed E linking up with former N.W.A mates Ren and Yella, revitalized and defiantly ignorant as ever on "My Baby'z Mama" and other standouts.
