Ice Cube has confirmed that although NWA will attend the 2016 Rock And Roll Hall of Fame tonight (April 8), they will not perform.
The rapper told The New York Times: “I guess we really didn’t feel like we were supported enough to do the best show we could put on.” When asked about the lack of support from organisers of the event, he said: “Pretty much, yeah. We wanted to do it on a whole other level, and that just couldn’t happen.”
Tonight’s event will see NWA inducted alongside Steve Miller, Deep Purple, Cheap Trick and Chicago.
