ice-cube-coachella0B7A2837 NWA / Ice Cube with Kendrick Lamar

Ice Cube played Coachella's weekend 2 on Saturday night (4/23) and, unlike weekend 1, he delivered what everyone was hoping for: an N.W.A. reunion with all surviving members, including Dr. Dre, taking the stage at one point during the set or another. Dre came out to perform "Still D.R.E." and 2Pac's "California Love" while MC Ren and DJ Yella for NWA's "Straight Outta Compton," and Lil' Eazy-E (Eazy-E's son) came out for "Boyz-n-the-Hood."

There were more guests: WC came out for "Why We Thugs" and The Game was brought out for "Don't Trip." Ice saved the biggest guest (other than the reunion) for the end: Kendrick Lamar, who inducted N.W.A. into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame, came out for the "We Ain't Never Gonna Stop" remix of P-Funk's "Ain't That Funkin Kinda Hard On You?" and finishing with Kendrick's "Alright." The whole set was dedicated to Prince. Full setlist, video and more pics from Ice Cube's Coachella weekend 2 set, below.
