Report: Eminem to join N.W.A. on tour
An N.W.A. reunion tour is reportedly in the works, with Eminem on board as an honorary member.
Em may be joining the ranks of “The World’s Most Dangerous Group” when the legendary rappers reunite for a reunion tour to promote the new film “Straight Outta Compton,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. The promotional tour would take place in Europe.
“We don’t have anything settled yet with everyone’s schedules,” Universal Studios chief Donna Langley tells THR. “But we think it can create a lot of buzz.”
Eminem, a protege of N.W.A.’s Dr. Dre, appears on the film’s soundtrack.
An N.W.A. reunion occurred last month when Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella performed together at the BET Experience in Los Angeles.
Original N.W.A. member Eazy-E died in 1995 due to AIDS-related complications.
“Straight Outta Compton” opens Aug. 14.
