Los Angeles, CA – In a momentous celebration of hip-hop’s enduring legacy, the 2024 Grammy Awards have honored the seminal rap group N.W.A. with the Lifetime Achievement Award. The prestigious accolade was presented by the iconic Bone Thugs-N-Harmony at The Recording Academy’s Special Merit Awards Ceremony, which took place Saturday Feb. 3, at the historic Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles.
Emerging from Compton, California, in the late 1980s, N.W.A.’s Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, MC Ren, and DJ Yella captured the zeitgeist of their era, channeling their experiences into a revolutionary sound that would forever alter the course of music. Their unflinching narratives and potent beats laid the groundwork for the genre’s future and solidified their status as pioneers of hip-hop. In addition to presenting the award Bone Thugs-N-Harmony attributes their ongoing success to N.W.A after getting signed to Eazy-E label Ruthless Records 30 years ago.
The ceremony was a convergence of legends as Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, with their own rich history in the genre, paid tribute to N.W.A.’s trailblazing contributions. The Grammy stage was a testament to the power of music as a force for cultural expression and change, honoring the legacy of artists who dared to speak their truth.
