More NWA reunions? Maybe, but forget about Dre

By | Published on Thursday 23 July 2015


The movie studio behind the previously reported NWA biopic ‘Straight Outta Compton’ is trying to get the legendary hip hop outfit back on stage, having managed to get Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella together at the recent BET Experience event in LA.

Speaking about promotional activity around the movie, Universal Pictures chief Donna Langley told The Hollywood Reporter: “We don’t have anything settled yet with everyone’s schedules, but we think it can create a lot of buzz”.

But would that reunion include everyone’s favourite Apple Inc suit and former NWAer Doc Dre? Well, that was the implication. And possibly his old pal Eminem too, who could possibly fill in for late NWA member Eazy E.

Though don’t be getting too excited, according to Rolling Stone reps for Dre and Slim Shady have denied that they have any plans to tour together, at all, let alone as part of some NWA reunion party.
