First Time in 26 Years Ice Cube Reunites N.W.A for BET Experience Show

Ice Cube will revisit his gangsta past later this month, when he performs numerous N.W.A songs with MC Ren and DJ Yella at a Los Angeles concert. “It’s just gonna be a great night,” Ice Cube tells Rolling Stone of his BET Experience gig at the Staples Center on June 27th. “We’re gonna be there with Snoop, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q. It’s just gonna be one of those ‘I wish I were there in L.A. nights.’ And we’re gonna rock that shit, no problem.”


The reunion comes before the release of Straight Outta Compton, the N.W.A biopic he co-produced with Dr. Dre and Eazy-E’s widow Tomica Woods-Wright. The movie, which comes out August 14th, covers the 10-year span between the group’s fornation in the mid-Eighties through Eazy-E’s death in 1995.

“I’m gonna bring out some of the old favorites,” Cube says of the concert, declining to name which specific songs he’ll perform. “We’re gonna bring back some memories up in there for sure.”

The festival, whose official name is the “BET Experience at L.A. Live, Presented by Coca-Cola,” will take place between June 25th and the 28th. Nicki Minaj, Kevin Hart, Bell Biv Devoe, the Roots and others are all slated to perform, with tickets now available. “Not only am I a fan of BET and I’m really grateful that BET is still around and doing events of this magnitude, but for it to be in my hometown, L.A., and for me to perform at the Staples Center, it’s a real cool notch on my belt,” Ice Cube says.
