Three of N.W.A.’s surviving members which includes Ice Cube, DJ Yella, and MC Ren, reunited late last month at the BET Experience in Los Angeles. The group’s performance, their first together in 26 years, came in support of F. Gary Gray’s forthcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.
This may have been only the beginning of a larger reunion according to The Hollywood Reporter. Universal Pictures is actively plotting an N.W.A. reunion tour, that would feature Eminem filling in for the late Eazy-E. The plan is for the tour to take place in Europe to coincide with the film’s August 14th release.
“We don’t have anything settled yet with everyone’s schedules,” Universal head Donna Langley told THR of the studio’s plan. “But we think it can create a lot of buzz.”
