* GunPorn: The music videos for "Alwayz into Somethin" and "Appetite for Destruction" from Niggaz4Life are quite subdued examples of this, as well as their some of their publicity photos.

''[=Niggaz4Life=]'' would be the group's final album. After Dr. Dre, The D.O.C. and Michel'le's departure from Ruthless for Death Row Records, in which Eazy-E was allegedly coerced into signing away their contracts (while however retaining a portion of their publishing rights), a bitter rivalry ensued. Dr. Dre began the exchange with Death Row's first release, 1992's "Fuck Wit Dre Day (And Everybody's Celebratin')", and its accompanying video featured a character named Sleazy-E who ran around desperately trying to get money. The insults continued on ''The Chronic'' with "Bitches Ain't Shit". Eazy-E responded in 1993 with the EP ''It's On [[strike:Dr. Dre]][=187um=] Killa'' and the tracks "Real Muthaphuckkin G's" and "It's On". Eazy-E accused Dr. Dre of homosexual tendencies, calling him a "she thang", and the music video for "Real Muthaphuckkin G's" shows promo pictures of him wearing make-up and a sequined jumpsuit. The photos were from Dr. Dre's World Class Wreckin' Cru days, when such fashions were the style of West Coast Electro hop prior to N.W.A's popularizing of gangsta rap.

N.W.A (a.k.a. "Niggaz Wit Attitudes") was a Compton, California-based hip hop group widely considered one of the seminal acts of the gangsta rap sub-genre. Active from 1986 to 1991, the group endured controversy due to the explicit nature of their lyrics. They were subsequently banned from many mainstream U.S. radio stations and even at times prevented from touring -- yet the group has still sold over 9 million units in the U.S. alone, mostly through word of mouth and underground magazines and hip-hop scenes. Their first album, ''Music/StraightOuttaCompton'', marked the beginning of the new GangstaRap era as the production and the social commentary in their lyrics were revolutionary within the genre. ''Rolling Stone'' ranked N.W.A 83rd on their list of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time". Although largely unknown at the group's inception, rappers Dr. Dre, Music/IceCube, Music/EazyE and MC Ren would all go on to be platinum-selling stars as solo artists.

** NWA themselves were parodied by "[[Music/{{GWAR}} Dave Brockie]] in his band's song "The Salaminizer", which rewrites the lyrics to "Gangsta Gangsta" and uses them as the verses for a thrash-metal song.
