This allowed Eazy-E to form the N.W.A. an acronym for N*ggaz With Attitude, with Dre and Cube, releasing their first album in 1987, Boyz N The Hood.

In his debut album, The College Dropout, West decided to sample a variety of soul and Christian music within his rap songs. This type of sampling can be heard in a song like “Jesus Walks” which samples The ARC Choir’s song, “Walk With Me.” West samples the choir not just for background music for his rapping, but he uses the chorus as the baseline, percussion, and melody of the entire song. West not only produces his songs differently, but also writes about issues differently in his music. The College Dropout
Dre who is a disc jockey along with DJ Yella at an outdated club, tries to encourage Eazy-E to trade in his drug dealing occupation to get into the music business, after playing a tract that it disapproved by the club owner, they get fired. This leads to the second act when Eazy-E records a record written by Ice Cube which became known as one of the biggest west coast rap hits over all time, Boyz N Tha Hood.
