This is the first and same-named track from N.W.A.’s E.P. 100 Miles And Runnin’.

It became a worldwide hit, while N.W.A changed their style; Dre went on this track faster than on any other track until today, and also Eazy and Ren hold a steady and fluent pace.

NWA was sued for infringing copyright with this song based on a very small sample taken from Funkadelic’s Get Off YOur Ass and Jam”. The court found that any sampling, no matter how small, infringed the copyright, and ordered NWA to pay damages. Bridgeport Music v. Dimension Films, 410 F.3d 792 (6th Cir. 2005).
