Ice Cube on the Tonight Show, helps Jimmy Fallon avoid saying what N.W.A. stands for

Posted on

If you’re planning to see the Ice Cube-produced biographical film Straight Outta Compton, then it might be good to know what the late ’80s rap group N.W.A.’s initials actually abbreviate.

Watching The Tonight Show on Wednesday night would not have given you that answer as Ice Cube stopped by to affirm for Jimmy Fallon that it’s probably a bad idea to say the full name on air, especially for Fallon.

Luckily, Ice Cube and Fallon came up with some strong alternatives in the segment “Things N.W.A. Does Not Stand For.”

Some of the highlights include “Nickelback Was Awesome,” “No Way, Ashley,” and “Namedropping Woody Allen” — check out more below.
