Ice Cube reunited with fellow N.W.A. members MC Ren and DJ Yella during the BET Experience in Los Angeles. The crew set the tone for the epic performance by entering the stage in a cop car.
The trio fed off the energetic entrance as they ran through a stirring rendition of their 1988 hit “Fuck Tha Police.” When asked about the performance a couple weeks ago, the Cali rep said “It’s just gonna be one those ‘I wish I were there in L.A. nights.’ And we’re gonna rock that shit, no problem…I’m gonna bring out some of the old favorites. We’re gonna bring back some memories up in there for sure.”
The impact of this performance will heighten interest in the upcoming Straight Outta Compton bio flick. The film is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off). It is produced by Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. It was also recently announced that actor Marcc Rose will play the role of Tupac Shakur in the film.
I loved the performance and I am super excited to see the film. What about you?
