The return of N.W.A. Album ahead after attitude adjustments, Dogg addition
It was the first time in 11 years that members of "America's Most Dangerous Group" -- Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and MC Ren -- had shared a stage, a move perhaps only slightly less startling than their raw, profane anthems, such as Straight Outta Compton and F*** Tha Police, which turned society on its ear.
And they're still not, judging from their performance on Jimmy [Iovine] and Doug [Morris]'s Farmclub.com -- a unique combination TV show/Web site/record label -- which airs Monday at 11 p.m. ET/PT on the USA Network. In addition to the classic Straight Outta Compton, they present recent collaborations Hello and Chin Check, on the latter of which they "release the hound" -- Snoop Dogg -- who makes his bow-wow bow as the group's newest member. The show and the new songs, they say, are just appetizers for a world tour and full-fledged album, the latter tentatively titled Not Those N****z Again.
Ice Cube -- who finally put an end to years of procrastination stemming from personal beefs, scheduling conflicts, individual stardom and the 1995 death of founder Eazy-E -- pulled everyone together late last year to record Chin Check for the soundtrack of his film Next Friday.
