We're not into politics at all. We're just saying what other people are afraid to say.
We're not making records for the fun of it; we're in it to make money.
If we could, we'd change a lot of things. But the only thing that's going to really change things is money and time. And time might just make it worse, too.
Compton is my city.
What we're showing may not be your reality, but it's ours.
The kids from the streets don't want preaching or messages. They want what they can identify with. They want to hear about the reality of their situation, not fairy tales. They don't care if it's ugly; they just want reality.
What the cops did to Rodney King was wrong, and the officers who beat him should be sent straight to prison.
I don't want to be in somebody else's movie, and then they make all the money. I've gotten offers to do the movies, but I won't sell myself short and be in somebody else's movie, like 'Boyz N the Hood.' I don't think I woulda done that.
I have seven children by six different mothers. Maybe success was too good to me.
I bet there ain't anybody in South Africa wearing a button saying 'Free Compton' or 'California.' They don't give a damn about us, so why should we give a damn about them?
Cussing ain't for everybody.
I just feel I've got thousands and thousands of young fans that have to learn about what's real when it comes to AIDS.
Eazy-E is going to remain Eazy-E. But I will not portray Compton as a bad city.
I put Compton on the map.
If you want to get your point across, you gotta cuss.
I go to correctional facilities and talk to kids there. They have little kids in there who are, like, 12 years old, stealing cars and stuff like that.
Movies don't make people act a fool. People act a fool because they want to act a fool.
The black police in Compton are worse than the white police.
People where we come from hear so many lies that the truth stands out like a sore thumb.
I'm not religious, but wrong or right, that's me.
I'll let the people decide what they think is good taste.
Not all cops are bad, but this kind of harassment has been going on for years in the ghetto.
Why do you think the fans like us - why they prefer our street raps over all that phony stuff out there? Because we're telling the real story of what it's like living in places like Compton. We're giving them reality. We're like reporters. We give them the truth.
Who gave it that title, gangsta rap? It's reality rap. It's about what's really going on.
I'm not a registered Republican or Democrat. I don't even vote.
