Out of all the performances going down this weekend at Coachella, Ice Cube’s was the one that most people pegged as having a large possibility for a number of surprises. Cube of course didn’t disappoint, and just days after they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he brought two of his old N.W.A group-mates MC Ren and DJ Yella for the show. With Dr. Dre presumably sitting at home, it wasn’t the full N.W.A reunion that everyone had hoped to see, but nevertheless, the audience went out of its mind as the three men ran through the songs “Straight Outta Compton” and “F–ck Tha Police.”
In addition to the 3/5 of N.W.A. the audience was also treated to special appearances by a bathrobe-wearing Snoop Dogg who busted out the bits of the songs “Go To Church” and “The Next Episode” and Common who cameod with “Real People.” It was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of moment. The type that makes Coachella one of the premier events in music each and every year.
Check out some of the footage from Cube’s set below.
