(AllHipHop News) In case you were unaware of N.W.A’s impact on Hip Hop, Rukkus turned Ice Cube, MC Ren, Eazy-E, The D.O.C, Dr. Dre, and DJ Yella’s family tree of artists into an infographic.

The crew that gave the world the classic LP Straight Outta Compton also played a role in advancing the careers of Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, The Game, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Westside Connection, Slaughterhouse, Will.i.am, and Kendrick Lamar.

Rukkus explained:

The chart below is a family tree of sorts; starting with N.W.A and trickling down via members of N.W.A that founded labels. The lines that connect show relationships, such as the artists to the label they founded/owned, as well as artists or groups who are signed to a label…

Although not a full on member of the group, The D.O.C. was arguably as important to the career of N.W.A as any one member, and for this chart’s purposes was treated as such. Overall we did our best to try to clearly and accurately paint the full picture.
