Everybody who knows yer ol’ uncle here understands one key thing: I am definitely down with N.W.A. Ask me sometime about that Ice Cube teeshirt I rock underneath my pinstripe suit. And I cannot wait to watch that N.W.A. biopic that’s coming soon, titled quite sensibly Straight Outta Compton… but I digress.
Saturday night erstwhile band members Ice Cube, DJ Yella and MC Ren were on stage together at the Staples Center in Los Angeles during the BET Experience, performing a mini-concert of “8 Ball,” “Straight Outta Compton,” “Chin Check” and “Fuck tha Police.” Billboard reports they also gave props homage to the late Eazy E during the set by interpolating portions of “Boyz-N-The-Hood” and “Foe Tha Love of $.”
Not on hand was Dr. Dre, however, but it wasn’t as if they were expecting him to show up. Ice Cube had told Rolling Stone recently that “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.”
