Ice Cube and Eminem have never collaborated on wax, but the Up In Smoke Tour they played together still evokes fond memories in the N.W.A. rapper.
Talking to HipHopDX recently, Ice Cube took a stroll down the memory lane, reminiscing on the extraordinary team Dr. Dre put together for the epic event:
That was the first tour that I took my sons on. I’m like, “Y’all hanging with me. Y’all about to grow up”. And you know, I had them rolling with me, and just having the energy of all those humongous groups. I mean, at the time, Eminem was opening up, you know?! Like, after Warren G, Eminem was going on. So that just shows you the level that we were at, that we were on. He could’ve headlined. It’s just being with the best teams. You talk about the [U.S. Olympic] Dream Team or the ’90s Bulls, the ’80s Lakers, Shaq and Kobe, it’s up there. You know you’re at a point where it gets no better than this. That’s what the Up In Smoke Tour was.
