Despite its independent release, the tape has sold over 1,000 copies. The single introduced rap artists Eazy-E, Ice Cube, and Dr. Dre. Apart from the title track and "8 Ball", the record also included "Dope Man", a song about a local drug dealer who is waited on hand and foot by frequent clients whose lives have been ruined as a result of their consumption of his products. This track was also the B-side of a split single release with Eazy-E's Boyz-n-the-Hood, which was released in 1989, following the commercial success of Eazy-E's solo debut Eazy-Duz-It and the group's first album proper, Straight Outta Compton, on which a remix of "Dope Man" was included. Both the original version and remix version of "Dopeman" appear on side B of the split, while the original version and the remix version of "Boyz-n-the-Hood" appear on side A. The song later appeared on The Best of N.W.A. - The Strength of Street Knowledge. It contains a sample from Funky Worm by the Ohio Players. Despite its notoriety and popularity, "Dope Man" was never released as a single proper.At 0:58 the song contains a reference to Scarface: "To be a dopeman, boy, you must qualify - don't get high off your own supply."
