It's now majority Hispanic, not black. Still a lot of gang problems, but a lot of gangbangers from the 90s are in prison right now.

They are now known as Cubito de Hielo, fácil E, and Médico Dre.

Moderator cut: the above are simply NWA members' names in Spanish. In order, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, and Dr. Dre.

Compton is a barrio nowadays. Gang violence still exists, but it's not as bad as it was during the 1980-2005 period.
