On tonight’s special edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable will be discussing one of the most controversial aspects of N.W.A’s legacy: Misogyny.  With the recently revived media furor over not only the groups but Dr. Dre’s history of domestic violence and assault, it is now pertinent to have a serious discussion about a topic that has been tabled for far too long.  Panelist E-Hill will be on hand to offer her many insights on the subject.  Throughout the discussion, a number of lingering and uncomfortable questions will be pondered.  Should Dr. Dre’s assault on Dee Barnes have been included in ‘Straight Outta Compton’?  What does it’s exclusion from the film say about Dr. Dre, N.W.A, and Hip-Hop as a whole?  Is Dr. Dre being unfairly persecuted for past crimes?  Are the film and its subjects being unfairly singled out for perpetuating a societal ill that has long been an integral part of American popular culture?  Are the needs and lives of Black women being ignored so that male rap fans can indulge their ultra-violent anti-hero fantasies without hindrance?  Why is America so hesitant to have this discussion?
