Will N.W.A. Go On a Reunion Tour?
One of the most iconic rap groups of our time, N.W.A., is back in the spotlight for their new biopic, Straight Outta Compton. Having received 90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, the film is a true tour de force chronicling the band’s rise and fall in the late 80s and early 90s.
Besides the buzz being generated by the biopic, news also broke recently that the group would like to go on tour to help promote the film–aaanddd they want to bring Eminem along with them as an honorary member. (Kind of like how Trey filled in for Jerry at the last Grateful Dead shows. Kind of.) The internet blew up with speculation, and almost instantly the claims were refuted by Dr. Dre and Eminem. But that still has us thinking: with all but one former member very much alive (RIP Eazy-E), it would just make sense for them to go on a reunion tour. Ice Cube, DJ Yella and MC Ren already performed together at last month’s BET Experience (video below), so why not make it official? We’ll keep our eyes and ears opened for more details regarding an N.W.A. tour as they (hopefully) unfold.
