Ice Cube revealed that he may bring a few guests to the Coachella stage when he plays the festival this April. The rapper/actor stopped by The Talk Monday to promote his new film Ride Along 2, when he said that he’s trying to reunite N.W.A during his set.

“I’m trying to bring the members of N.W.A together — come with me on the stage,” Ice Cube said. “Give everybody a little history lesson on Ice Cube and N.W.A Westside Connection.”

Although N.W.A disbanded in 1995 after the death of Eazy-E, love for the group had a renewed resurgence in recent years thanks to the last year’s film, Straight Outta Compton. N.W.A also partially reunited last summer for a performance at BET Experience. This reunion included only Ice Cube, DJ Yella, and MC Ren, and they played seven of their iconic N.W.A tracks, including “Straight Outta Compton” and “It Was a Good Day.”

This year’s Coachella will run from April 15-17 and April 22-24, and headliners include LCD Soundsystem, Guns N’ Roses, and Calvin Harris.
