According to LinkedIn, summertime is full of musical experiences that fans everywhere can’t wait to witness. One of those experiences finally occurred on Saturday night.
At long last, the very much anticipated N.W.A. reunion took place on Saturday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in front of a packed sold out crowd. Rappers Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella were present on-stage but Dr. Dre wasn’t there. When asked, Ice Cube said that the three of them hadn’t been on stage together in 26 years.
The N.W.A. Reunion finished out the day during the BET Experience in L.A. that weekend, in addition to the BET Awards playing on June 28th. Throughout the day there were several other events that took place, including a dunk contest hosted by Rap City personality Big Tigger, a sneaker convention and a CoverGirl fashion show.
By the time nightfall had arrived, the Staples Center had already filled and artists ranging from Top Dawg Entertainment and Schoolboy Q had performed on stage. Even more exciting was an appearance by none other than Kendrick Lamar himself, who had a very hyped-up reception as he performed many of his well-noted songs.
But it was Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella who stole the night, as they gave out their main hit songs like “Straight Outta Compton” and “Gangsta, Gangsta” to finish the night.
