ICE CUBE TO JOIN WITH N.W.A. FOR THEIR FIRST SHOW IN 15 YEARS
Monday, Jun 8, 2015
You heard right! Ahead of the upcoming N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton,” set to open in August 14th, Ice Cube is reuniting with the remaining members of the legendary, and somewhat controversial, group. The set is to reunite in June as part of the four-day BET Experience festival, performing for the first time in 15 years.
Formed in 1986, the group went through a number of lineup changes, and throughout its tenure featured members Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, Ice Cube, Arabian Prince and MC Ren.
Ice Cube told Rolling Stone that the last time he performed with N.W.A. members DJ Yella and MC Ren was in 1989 and 2000. “It’s just gonna be one of those ‘I wish I were there in L.A.’ nights. And we’re gonna rock that s#*t, no problem.”
N.W.A. will perform June 27 at the Staples Center and will be joined by Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul.
