N.W.A. Reunite At Coachella

Ice Cube delivered his promise of a full N.W.A. reunion during his second-weekend set at the Coachella festival in California on Saturday night (23Apr16).

The rapper was joined onstage by DJ Yella and MC Ren for the second week in a row, but this time the trio was joined by Dr. Dre, N.W.A.’s prolific producer and co-founder.

Together, the reunited quartet performed Dre’s solo hit Still D.R.E. before covering Dre and Tupac Shakur’s California Love.

Ice Cube’s Saturday night set was also graced with the presence of The Game and Kendrick Lamar, who inducted N.W.A. into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this month (Apr16).

Cube teased fans with the promise of a reunion back in January (16), when he said he was going to try to “bring the members of N.W.A. together… to give everybody a little history lesson on Ice Cube and N.W.A., Westside Connection, everything I’ve been doing over the years.”

Last weekend (16Apr16), Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson, Jr, who portrayed his father in the Straight Outta Compton biopic, also joined his dad onstage, alongside Common and Snoop Dogg.

The reunions continued with Guns N’ Roses second Saturday night headlining set at the festival, as the band’s classic line-up performed a 25-song hits set with tracks including Out Ta Get Me, Used to Love Her, November Rain, Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door, and Welcome to the Jungle.

Other highlights from Saturday’s Coachella included Disclosure’s Prince tribute – a sample of Purple Rain – and Run the Jewels’ star-studded afternoon set, which featured guests like drummer Travis Barker, DJ Shadow, newlywed guitarist Gary Clark, Jr., and Rage Against the Machine frontman Zach De La Rocha.
