SHARE – On this honorary episode of The Vlad Couch, DJ Yella from the iconic Compton group, N.W.A., sits down to discuss the group’s highs, lows, and every diss track in between. Even when it comes to the infamous crew’s name, N****s Wit Attitudes, Yella says “that’s a statement that’s so far ahead of itself.”

Despite their highly-publicized beefs throughout the late 80’s/early 90’s, DJ Yella recalls a specific time the group stuck together to perform their hit “F*** tha Police,” the anti-cop record the F.B.I (or any other form of authority) wasn’t too fond of. “Cube wasn’t even at the end of his verse,” DJ Yella recalls of the first and last time N.W.A. performed the track during a show in Detroit, Michigan. “They ran us out of that city.”

DJ Yella – who was a consultant for the biopic “Straight Outta Compton” – says he hasn’t “done music since” Eazy E passed away due to complications from AIDS. He remembers the “Boyz-N-The Hood” performer “was not a natural rapper.” “He had to be coached. But he had the sound,” Yella recalls.

Press play to hear more about Ice Cube’s departure from the group, a possible N.W.A. reunion in the near-future, and why to this day DJ Yella hasn’t let Dr. Dre know his answer when it came to signing with Death Row Records.

“Straight Outta Compton” is now in theaters worldwide.
