Video: N.W.A. Interviewed on Arsenio Hall in 1990

This is the interview before the performance we posted yesterday. They talk on the accusations that their music encourages violence against the police. Classic response from Ren when Arsenio asks, “You don’t think all police are bad?” and Ren says “No, not all of them, just 90% of them.” And then a bit later he says something I think is rather profound, “I don’t feel them because they don’t feel me.” They don’t care about me so I don’t care about them.

And then there is the elephant in the video. The silent, hockey-masked, straight-jacket wearing Eazy-E that it looks like through off Arsenio. It’s a solid interview with some good insight. Then you can watch the performance once again.
