Straight Outta Compton Goes Triple Plat

Straight Outta Compton, the seminal album from N.W.A., hit triple platinum status last month.

The album was propelled once again by the success of the movie of the same name, which dropped to rave reviews this summer.

Much of the controversy that existed in ’88 continued in relevance in 2015. Straight Outta Compton, the album delved into misogyny, freedom of speech and police brutality.
