N.W.A (abbreviation for Niggaz Wit Attitudes) was an American hip hop group from Compton, California, widely considered one of the seminal acts of the gangsta rap sub-genre, sometimes credited as the most important group in the history of hip hop. Active from 1986 to 1991, the rap group endured controversy due to the explicit nature of their lyrics, and was subsequently banned from many mainstream U.S. radio stations. In spite of this, the group has sold over 10 million CD units in the U.S. alone. more »

Why you brothers insist on usin' the word nigga?
Don't you know that's bringin down the black race?
Personally I think the lyrics are a bit too harsh
I ain't no nigga, f*ck that shit
Does everything come out your mouth got to be a 4-letter word?
The way you talk about women is bullshit, plain bullshit
Motherfucker I got kids, I don't want 'em listenin' to that bullshit

F*ck the niggas!
Motherfuckers need to stop
How can you call yourself a nigga and be proud of it?


Why do I call myself a nigga you ask me?
Well it's because motherfuckers wanna blast me
And run me outta my neighborhood
And label me as a dope dealer yo, and say that I'm no good
But I gave out jobs so niggas wouldn't have to go out
Gave up some dope on the corner so they could show out
When the cops came, they gave a fake name
Because the life in the streets is just a head game
So therefore, to make more
A 15-year-old black kid'll go and rob a liquor store
And get shot in the process
He ate up a nine bullet and now he's put to rest

Why do I call myself a nigga you ask me?
I guess it's just the way shit has to be
Back when I was young gettin' a job was murder
F*ck flippin' burgers, 'cause I deserve a
Nine-to-five I can be proud of, that I can speak loud of
And to help a nigga get out of
Yo! The concrete playground
But most motherfuckers only want you to stay down
But I'm a smart motherfucker you see
One of the best producers in the rap music industry
Gettin' paid like a motherfucker
A young brother, who don't give a f*ck about another

Why do I call myself a nigga you ask me?
Because police always wanna harass me
Every time that I'm rollin' (rollin')
They swear up and down that the car was stolen (this shit is stolen)
Make me get face down in the street (in the street)
And throw the shit out my car on the concrete (yeah)
In front of a residence
A million white motherfuckers on my back like I shot the President

Why do I call myself a nigga you ask me?
Because my mouth is so motherfuckin' nasty
Bitch this, bitch that, nigga this, nigga that
In the mean while my pockets are gettin' fat
Gettin' paid to say this shit here
Makin' more in a week than a doctor makes in a year
So why not call myself a nigga?
It's better than pullin' the trigger and goin' up the river
And then I get called a nigga anyway
Broke as a motherfucker and locked away, so
So cut out all that bullshit
Yo! I guess I'll be a nigga for life

Niggas, crackers, Jews!
If there's hell below, we're all gonna go!

Nigga nigga nigga nigga nigga nigga, please
I'm treated like a fuckin' disease
You say, why do I call myself a nigga so quick?
'Cause I can reach in my drawers and pull out a bigger dick, yo
Nigga say nigga we cool but
Cracker say nigga, nigga knocked the f*ck up
But I gotta be a fast nigga, to never be the last nigga
Or I'll have to beat yo' ass, nigga
In the city you see action first
Then hear about it later in a verse I curse
Because I'm real with this to keep my shit straight bumpin'
Murder, created by the streets of Compton
Now get it from the underground poet
I live it, I see it, and I write it because I know it
And if you think I'm fuckin' your wife
You're motherfuckin' right yo, 'cause I'm a nigga for life

I love niggas, I love niggas, I love niggas
Because niggas are me
And I should only love that which is me
I love that you niggas (niggas for life)

Nigga this, nigga that
The actual fact is that I'm black and bound to attract
The attention of another, I mean the other
But I'm a motherfucker that'll have 'em runnin' for cover
You see, I don't give a f*ck about nothin'
Except gettin' paid, gettin' bitches, and issuin' stitches
Which is, all needed to read it and find a rhyme
And then it's time to say, the nigga's here to stay
But what about the fake niggas, the house niggas
To get paid quick they gotta suck a fat dick
But N.W.A. is outta your motherfuckin' range
We ain't gonna change a motherfuckin' thang!

I call myself a nigga 'cause my skin won't lighten
I call myself a nigga 'cause the shit that I'm writin'
Hypes me, hypes other motherfuckers around me
And that's the reason why they wanna surround me
And ask me, why do I call myself a n*gger-o?
Ain't none of their fuckin' business cause I'll let the trigger go
So get out my presence and get out of my sight
'Cause MC Ren is a nigga for life

You're a nigga 'til you die
If you're a po' nigga, you're a po' nigga
If you're a rich nigga, you're a rich nigga
But you never stop bein' a nigga
And if you get to be educated you just an educated nigga
(I can dig it!)

It's plain to see, you can't change me
'Cause I'mma be a nigga for life
It's plain to see, you can't change me
'Cause I'mma be a nigga for life
It's plain to see, you can't change me
'Cause I'mma be a nigga for life
It's plain to see, you can't change me
'Cause I'mma be a nigga for life
It's plain to see, you can't change me
'Cause I'mma be a nigga for life
It's plain to see, you can't change me
'Cause I'mma be a nigga for life

I'm a nigga, he's a nigga, she's a nigga, we some niggas
Wouldn't you like to be a nigga too?
