NWA Music Did Nothing To Empower African-American Youths

Jeff Liles of the Dallas Observer ran a scathing article on after the Dallas Morning News ran a huge write-up on them earlier this month. Liles said, “Public Enemy was militant and educated; the members of N.W.A. were merely anti-social role players. And their music was prostitution on a number of different levels. It sold out the urban African-American public as a people who justified violent crime as a reasonable means to an end. At the same time, they (along with Ice-T and, later, Tupac Shakur) allowed white entertainment executives to pimp them out as ideological spokesmen for their fractured and desperate community.”
