Str8 off tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton

Str8 off tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton (Straight off the Streets of Motherfucking Compton) was rapper Eazy-E's second full-length album. It was released posthumously in 1995. It contained the singles "Muthaphuckkin Real" and "Just tah Let U Know".

It was going to be a two-disc album, but Eazy-E died before he was able to finish it. The album was supposed to be released in 1994, but kept on getting pushed back. Eazy-E said, in earlier 1995, that the album was set to be released in the summer of 1995. He also said that the album was set to have up to 60 tracks. His wife has said that the tracks still exist, but are yet to be released because there are many legal issues that are yet to be settled. The song "Wut Would You Do", was a diss track aimed at Death Row Records. In the song, Eazy-E makes comments about Dr. Dre and other various artists on or involved with Death Row.

Reception

  • Entertainment Weekly (2/2/96, pp.54-56) - "Sadly, it's his most musically varied and enjoyable album....On Str8 off tha Streetz, he leaves our consciousness the same way he entered--rough, raunchy, embattled, and utterly unapologetic." - Rating:B
  • Melody Maker (1/13/96, p.29) - "...fairly dope; nice thunking beats, smoky crepuscular loops, suggesting that even the West Coast can't ignore the Wu-Tang forever."
