The NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton, is due Aug. 14 and sounded like there were some big plans on the way.
In the cover story of The Hollywood Reporter with Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, Universal chief Donna Langley teased that she would pull off a big European tour that would reunite NWA and bring along Eminem to serve as an honorary member to replace Eazy-E.
"We don't have anything settled yet with everyone's schedules," she said. "But we think it can create a lot of buzz."
It might have been too good to be true. A rep for Dre and Em reached out to Rolling Stone denying that they had plans to tour together — neither as unit nor with NWA.
But if you still need an NWA fix, revisit footage from our BET Experience concert event, where they reunited to perform cuts off Straight Outta Compton.
