They’re comin’ straight out of retirement!
Speaking with Rolling Stone, hip-hop visionary Ice Cube shares the first details of his upcoming BET Live Experience Show, set to include performances with former N.W.A. members MC Ren and DJ Yella.
“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.”
“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’s full title; “The B.E.T. Experience Live at L.A. Live Presented by Coca Cola”, the kind of mouthful that only Eazy-E could have said fast, takes place from June 25th to June 28th. The reunion performance comes in advance of the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, out on August 14th.
