  5. My college suitemate used to blast the NWA album day in and day out… I grew to love it and to this day can still see a skinny asian guy rapping “So what about the bitch who got shot? Fuck her!
    You think I give a damn about a bitch? I ain’t a sucker!
    This is the autobiography of the E, and if you ever fuck with me
    You’ll get taken by a stupid dope brotha who will smother
    word to the motherfucker, straight outta Compton
    ” as he does his homework.

    Did you get the new Urge Overkill album yet? Released today (May 10th!) It’s fantastic, a bit like Exit The Dragon in some ways…
