In conjunction with the upcoming N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, the legendary hip-hop group will be perform together for the first time in almost 26 years. It’s going down on June 27 in LA at the Staples Center as part of this year’s BET Experience festivities. The concert will feature surviving members Ice Cube, DJ Yella, and MC Ren and although Dr. Dre‘s name was not confirmed in today’s announcement, Ice Cube did hint with this statement: “You know, if you wish upon a star, you never know.” Additionally, they’ll also be appearances from other fellow Left Coast representatives Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and ScHoolboy Q. Ice Cube also dropped another bombshell and said the members of N.W.A are working on new songs for the Straight Outta Compton soundtrack:

“We’re definitely dibbling and dabbling, so to speak. It’s all about how great it comes out when you’re creating something. We can throw anything together; we can put rhymes and beats together easy. But our expectation level is so high, and if we meet our threshold, the world gets to hear what it is. If we don’t, we still need more time together to make it happen. It’s really some TLC, tender love and care, being put into these records. We’ll see what it is.”

Straight Outta Compton hits theaters on August 14, 2015.
