Compton Most Wanted front man MC Eiht is responsible for the soundtrack's undeniable highlight, the classic "Streiht Up Menace." He played a supporting role, as hardened O.G. A-Wax, in the film as well. He quietly released independent albums and collaborated with Snoop, Spice 1 and others in the new millenium, but made a big return to the spotlight last year on Kendrick Lamar's "m.A.A.d. city," a tribute to Compton's dark side.
