Six Degrees of a G: The N.W.A Family Tree
by Wax Poetics
Everybody knows Snoop and Kendrick are part of the N.W.A legacy, but did you know Coolio, the Black Eyed Peas, and MC Hammer are part of that family as well? In honor of the release of Straight Outta Compton, the fine team at Universal have put together an N.W.A family tree connecting over fifty artists and groups to the legendary hip-hop pioneers. Fully interactive with Spotify and YouTube links, you can select each founding member’s tree as well as find out how the various artists are related to the group. A dizzying mix of groundbreaking artists like Eminem and Rakim sitting alongside the likes of Candyman and Hoes With Attitudes, it’s no wonder we’re still feeling the influence of N.W.A in pop culture decades later. Check the tree here.
