In light of the release of the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, which includes discussion of the group’s landmark song “Fuck the Police,” as well as the recent deaths at the hands of law enforcement including those of Sandra Bland, Ralkina Jones and Sam Dubose, HipHopWired created a list of “15 Hip-Hop Songs That Slam Police Brutality.”
Bone thugs-n-harmony released “No Surrender” in 1994 on its Creepin On Ah Come Up EP, released through N.W.A founder Eazy-E’s Ruthless Records.
“Coming straight outta Cleveland, the Bone Thugs hit the scene with utmost militancy, rejecting everything a badge and a gun stood for,” the site says.
“For their sophomore album Terminate On Sight, 50 Cent & Co. channeled the N.W.A,” the site says.
The list also includes LL Cool J‘s “Illegal Search” from 1990’s Mama Said Knock You Out.
“The legendary Cool James never gets his props for his socio-conscious material outside of his jams catered to the ladies,” the site says about the Queens, New York rapper’s track.
