Hip hop, on the West Coast, truly organized when NWA and Ruthless Records emerged. Led by Eazy-E, the label also boasted Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. Their history was chronicled in Straight Outta Compton, the blockbuster success of 2015.
Cold 187um and Lay Law, of Above The Law, were also members of the iconic Ruthless Records. However, their part in the Ruthless movement was glossed over in the movie. But, they ended up discussing their part in a new interview.
Sway invited Cold 187um and Lay Law to “Sway In The Morning” on Shade 45, where they discussed Dr. Dre and the origin of Ruthless and Death Row Records. They told stories of Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Jerry Heller, Dr. Dre, the Tyga situation (which Big Hutch spoke to Hip Hop Vibe about), Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and many more. The duo made it clear they have no beef with anyone, but they did discuss the Game situation and Kendrick Lamar’s success.
