The performance was one that Ice Cube had been hinting at putting together in recent weeks, and he came through to bring the surviving members of the group on stage at the same time.
While they didn’t perform their material as a whole, MC Ren, DJ Yella and Cube performed “Straight Outta Compton” as Dr. Dre was the last to join the party.
Lil Eazy-E, the son of fallen member Eazy-E who passed away in 1995 after battling aids, paid tribute to his father by performing “Boyz N The Hood.”
Cube also paid tribute to Prince saying he was one of his “favorite artists” and brought out Kendrick Lamar as a surprise guest, as the two performed “Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You? (We Ain’t Neva Gonna Stop Remix) and K. Dot’s “Alright.”
Check out some clips from the performance below.
