Ice Cube Hints At A Coming NWA Reunion (Video)

Ice Cube foreshadowing this year’s Coachella concert supreme Hip-Hop moment…maybe? Look, Cube wants that NWA reunion. And if anybody could make it happen (with a phone call to Dr. Dre), it’s the man O’shea.

I’ve got some tricks up my sleeves… I’m gonna try to bring the members of NWA together…give everybody a little history lesson on Ice Cube and NWA, Westside connection, everything I’ve been doing over the years. We have some great visuals….same night Guns & Roses get back together…It’s gonna be a great night!
Ice Cube

Now, before you cynics file this in the never-gonna-happen box… he threw a Westside Connection (his other steady crew) mention in there. Something (e.g. some kind of reunion) is happening in April. Bet that.

Raekwon x Ghostface Killah Perform At Coachella 2015 (Video)

Last week, repping the Wu-Tang hard, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah took the stage and did the damn damage at the 2015 Coachella Festival! The crowd had the W’s up before the show even started. And when it did, even the DJ (Scram Jones) had to take a phone pic. Heads are almost guaranteed to lose their sh!t by the time “Incarcerated Scarfaces” comes up. And you might get a little misty when they do “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” for the late bro ODB.

Tupac ‘Dies’ Again: Hologram Company Goes Under (Video)

Financial News One reported days ago (see video above) that Digital Domain Media (DDM) CEO John C. Textor had abruptly resigned and that the company was “evaluating its options, including Chapter 11 bankruptcy.” Well, Kenneth Schortgen of is now reporting that DDM, the company that brought rapper Tupac Shakur back to life (as a lifelike hologram at the last Coachella Festival) has indeed filed for bankruptcy:

Tupac Shakur will always live in the minds and hearts of millions of Americans, but his image, resurrected by Digital Domain Media, suffered a second death today at the hands of the bankruptcy courts.

– Kenneth Schortgen, Jr.,

Digital Domain Media’s (DDM) resurrected Tupac hologram was received with much fanfare at the last Coachella Festival. Shortly after the Festival, many of us began to ponder whose hologram would make an appearance at the next Coachella. Moreover, recent buzz about a “noteworthy” celebrity appearance at the Republican National Convention gave rise to talk of the possibility of a speech delivered by a hologram of President Ronald Reagan (before we learned that the celebrity speaker would be Clint Eastwood). Indeed, the possibilities for DDM to capitalize on buzz seemed endless. Unfortunately, the company was not able to convert the buzz into anything truly bankable. With its September 11, 2012, bankruptcy filing, DDM (in effect) died… and the possibility of any more of its holographic resurrections (including an encore performance from Tupac) died with it.

R.I.P. DDM. R.I.P. Holo-Tupac.

(One more time, Holo-Tupac…after the jump.)
