Ice Cube Hints at N.W.A Coachella Reunion
Tue, 19 Jan 2016 13:46:35
We already know that Ice Cube is set to play at Coachella this year, but he plans to have a little treat for the audience. While speaking on The Talk Friday, Ice Cube said, "I'm gonna try to bring the members of N.W.A together. Give everybody a little history lesson." The group had a semi-reunion last June when Cube, MC Ren, and DJ Yella performed at the BET Experience. The performance, however, was notably missing Dr. Dre.
We aren't sure exactly who would be taking the place of Eazy-E, but rumors have been swirling that Eminem may be the man for the job. However, with Coachella's penchant for the use of holograms who knows what will happen?
Ice Cube's teaser comes on the heels of the announcement that N.W.A will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The ceremony is set to take place on April 8th at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, less than a week before Coachella's opening weekend.
Ice Cube is currently promoting his new feature film, Ride Along 2, with Kevin Hart, which was released nationwide last Friday, January 15th, 2016.
