NWA, or Nigga With Attitude, is one of the most influential group in Hip Hop, not because entirely of their persona, but the undiluted streetness that they protrude in their lyrics and songs. Their careers took on a greater influence on hip hop separately than they had ever influenced it together.
September 9, 1995 - Coolio featuring L.V. scored his first US No.1 single with 'Gangsta's Paradise'. The song sampled the chorus of the 1976 Stevie Wonder song 'Pastime Paradise' and featured in the 1995 movie Dangerous Minds (starring Michelle Pfeiffer). Coolio was awarded a Grammy Award for the song. •• #coolio #lv #thisdayinmusic #1990s #hiphop #soundtrack #dangerousminds
