100 Miles and Runnin'

This shirt is so DOPE its not even funny! Released in 1990 (I was in like 6th grade at the time) 100 Miles and Runnin' was the first N.W.A. album after Ice Cube had left the group a year earlier, and the group makes numerous sardonic references to its former member. On the title track, Dre states "It started with five one couldn't take it / So now there's four 'cause the fifth couldn't make it" to dismiss Ice Cube as a coward. On the song "Real Niggaz" MC Ren states "Only reason niggaz pick up your record is cause they thought it was us", referring to the success of Ice Cube's first solo album AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted which had been released earlier that year.
