Best Reunion: N.W.A
"Is there a doctor in the house?" Ice Cube asked from the main stage on Saturday. Already standing with him were former N.W.A members DJ Yella and MC Ren, but the reunion of "the world's most dangerous group" was finally complete when Dr. Dre appeared to the roar of the crowd. Before Dre's arrival, Cube had the N.W.A revival at full throttle with a powerful reading of "Fuck tha Police" and "Straight Outta Compton." He brought out Lil Eazy-E, son of the late N.W.A member Eazy-E, to rap "Boyz-n-the-Hood." When his turn came, Dre chose to perform songs from his years after N.W.A, Nineties productions "Still D.R.E." and "California Love." While his part in the night's reunion didn't include him performing any of the group's songs, having Cube, Ren and Yella join him was a glimpse of what a later N.W.A might have looked like if the group had survived the acrimony that broke them apart.
