Greatest Hits (1996)

Niggaz4Life is the second studio album by American gangsta rap group N.W.A, released in 1991 by Ruthless and Priority Records. Released three years after their 1988 debut album Straight Outta Compton, the album features only four members of the original line-up, as Arabian Prince and Ice Cube had left the group in 1988 and 1989 respectively. In comparison to its predecessor, the album was heavier on misogyny, for which it became notorious. The album's final nine songs were laden with more sexist profanity and references to various sexual acts, provoking attacks from the IRC, liberal and conservative politicans, and civil rights activist C. Delores Tucker. It was the group's final album, as they disbanded later the same year after the departure of Dr. Dre and songwriter The D.O.C. for Death Row Records.

Niggaz4Life debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, but in its second week reached No. 1. In 1992, several months after the release of the album, N.W.A released a video entitled Niggaz4Life: The Only Home Video, which chronicled the making of the album and its three music videos, "Alwayz into Somethin'", "Appetite for Destruction" and "Approach to Danger". In 2003, the CD was re-released in two formats. Both had the EP 100 Miles and Runnin' appended to the end of the original track listing, but one was available with a DVD copy of Niggaz4Life: The Only Home Video
