N.W.A. and the Posse is Released
N.W.A. and the Posse was a 1987 Macola Records release that compiled various Dr. Dre-produced tracks and was marketed as an album by N.W.A. It includes previously released tracks by N.W.A, Eazy-E, the Fila Fresh Crew, and Rappinstine.
The cover photo is the same as N.W.A's "Panic Zone" single and features people who don't even appear on the record. The album peaked at #39 on Billboard magazine's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
On the album cover, their group name has a full stop at the end, while in later albums, it doesn't.
N.W.A. and the Posse was re-released in 1989 by Ruthless Records, substituting another N.W.A song for the one by Rappinstine. The album was certified gold by the RIAA in 1994.
