N.W.A. Announce First Performance Together Since 1989

(Radio.com) Los Angeles will see one of its O.G. rap groups reunited on June 27 when Ice Cube rejoins MC Ren and DJ Yella at the Staples Center for a performance as N.W.A.

It'll be the first time since 1989 that the group has performed together. "I'm gonna bring out some of the old favorites," Cube told Rolling Stone. "We're gonna bring back some memories up in there for sure."

In a Q&A with the mag, Cube said it's easy to get back into the headspace of the "extremely hungry" younger version of himself and relate to the politically charged lyrics documenting a time of police brutality against the black community in Los Angeles.

"Same s-'s going on," the rapper said. "It doesn't change with the calendar. So it's easy. The rage is still there because the problems are still there. I've always said what I need to say and that ain't never gonna change. My personal success is irrelevant to the rhymes I write and what I talk about, how I feel about society." Read more here.
