Because of the recurring violent and sexual lyrics and profanity, often specifically directed at governmental organizations such as the LAPD, N. W. A always enjoyed a particular reputation with U. S. Senators and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), as noted in the LP's published notes. This situation persisted over the years with the group's visible head, Eazy-E. One of the reasons for this was "Fuck tha Police", the highly controversial track from the album that resulted in the FBI and the U. S. Secret Service sending a letter to Ruthless Records informing the label of their displeasure with the song's message, and that N. W. A was banned from performing at several venues. The FBI letter only helped further popularize the album and N. W. A. ; In the group's 1990 song "100 Miles and Runnin'", while the music video shows the crew running from the police, Dr. Dre raps "and now the FBI is all over my dick!" as a response to the FBI's warnings. Also, in his 1990 song "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted", Ice Cube mocks the FBI with the line "With a pay-off, cop gotta lay off, FBI on my dick, stay off".
