Dre joined his former bandmates on stage after they performed “Straight Outta Compton” and “F-ck The Police” to an exhilarated sold-out crowd. The members of N.W.A. performed Dre’s solo hits “California Love” and “Still D.R.E.” and joined together to pay tribute to their friend Eazy-E saying, “Rest in Peace Eazy-E.” Lil Eazy-E, Eazy-E’s son, joined the N.W.A mini-set to perform his father’s classic song, “Boyz N the Hood.” Dr. Dre’s appearance came as a surprise to many after the super-producer failed to show for last week’s N.W.A. “reunion” during the first weekend of the highly-regarded music festival.
