100 Miles and Runnin'

Template:Album infobox

100 Miles and Runnin' is the title of an EP by N.W.A., released in 1990 on Ruthless Records. Prior to recording, all of the group members had signed a long-term contract with the Ruthless Records label. However, member Ice Cube refused the contract's terms and consequently separated from the group. Although the album was released as an E.P., it nevertheless hit the charts and sold over 500,000 copies, reaching gold status. This was not surprising as the group had gained popularity from being seen as frontrunners of the increasingly-trendy genre of gangsta rap.

100 Miles and Runnin' was the first N.W.A. album after Ice Cube had left the group a year earlier. Roots of the N.W.A. vs. Ice Cube battles originated here with subtle negative references to the ex-member. The title track "100 Miles and Runnin'" became the song that got the group major airtime on the radio and TV with the music video. Dr. Dre, who had just finished working with The D.O.C. and Above the Law, shines in his production with the usual funk breakbeats and the slow synth groove on "Just Don't Bite It".

A sadistic parody of the police on a skit featuring The D.O.C. from the group's 1-900 hotline introduces "Sa Prize, Pt. 2", a sequel to the controversial "F-ck the Police" originally off of the Straight Outta Compton album. Some of Eazy's greatest deliveries with the N.W.A. are found on this album. MC Ren and The D.O.C. provided the hard-hitting lyrics for Eazy-E and Dr. Dre. In the end, the album served to anticipate the group's upcoming album, Efil4zaggin. Later in 1990, on Ice Cube's solo debut AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted, replied attacks towards the N.W.A. were voiced by Cube and Da Lench Mob setting off an ongoing beef that remained up until 1994.
