1. When Ice Cube embraced his destiny.
2. The moment when Eazy-E became a true businessman.
3. When a young Dre rocked this jacket and a club before he became the Dr. we all know and love:
4. The first time Eazy-E took to the mic.
5. And after a rough few tries, killed it.
6. And then when they listened back to "Boyz-n-the-Hood" and knew it was going to be a hit.
7. When they showed East Coast rappers the West Coast was a force to be reckoned with.
8. When they realized that the world wanted more N.W.A.
9. And when they used their influence to give a voice to people who were once voiceless.
10. When the FBI was all like:
11. But then they said "Fuck tha Police" and did it anyway.
12. When people started protesting their music.
13. And they realized how much of an impact they really had.
14. When Dr. Dre found out his brother died, and his N.W.A fam was there for him.
15. When Ice Cube and Eazy-E met up years after Cube's split and took stock in how far they'd all come.
