NWA members to reunite at BET Experience

By | Published on Tuesday 9 June 2015


Ice Cube will reunite with former NWA members MC Ren and DJ Yella later this month, to perform a number of the gangsta rap group’s tracks at the BET Experience show in LA.

Speaking about the event, which comes ahead of the release of a biopic of the group, Ice Cube told Rolling Stone: “The last time I performed with Yella was 1989. That was a long time, but with Ren, it was the ‘Up In Smoke’ tour [in 2000]. It was real cool to be onstage with him again, but that’s still been fifteen years ago. So it’s real cool to get up there and with the excitement around ‘Straight Outta Compton’ the movie. I think people are going to just be extra excited to get a glimpse of us”.

Asked if Dr Dre would also be in attendance, the rapper added: “You know, if you wish upon a star, you never know. You never know. I hope he blesses us with his presence. But if not, I’ve been rockin for a long time without anybody. So whoever shows up, I’m still gonna rock. Whoever don’t show up, we still gonna rock”.

The BET Experience takes place at the Staples Center in LA on 27 Jun.
