Ice Cube Wants to Reunite N.W.A at Coachella 2016
Cube, who is currently enjoying the release of another hit film Ride Along 2 co-starring Kevin Hart, was recently a guest on the day-time talk show The Talk with Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood. During the interview he remarked about what he has in mind for his set at the April festival. “I got some tricks up my sleeve. I can’t reveal it all,” he said. “But I’m trying to bring the members of N.W.A together. Come with me on the stage. Give everybody a little history lesson on Ice Cube and N.W.A, Westside Connection. Everything I’ve been doing over the years.”
While it's been 25 years since we've seen all surviving members performing on one stage, Ice Cube performed with DJ Yella and MC Ren at the BET Experience (sans Dre) last summer.
This would be the perfect opportunity to pull out the Eazy-E hologram to make the cypher complete. It was first used in 2013 at the Rock The Bells concert during a performance with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
The same month as the Coachella performance, N.W.A is set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, the late Eazy-E, MC Ren and DJ Yella are among the honorees for the 31st Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which will take place April 8, 2016 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
