Los Angeles - Ice Cube is planning to reunite N.W.A. at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

The You Can Do It hitmaker will be taking to the stage at the world famous music event in Indio, California, in April and he wants to bring his former bandmates on stage with him and give the crowd a "history lesson" on "N.W.A" and the "West Side Connection".

Speaking on US TV show The Talk he said: "I've got some tricks up my sleeves ... I'm gonna try to bring the members of N.W.A. together. Give everybody a little history lesson on Ice Cube and N.W.A., West Side Connection, everything I've been doing over the years."

As well as potentially bringing surviving members DJ Yella and Dr. Dre on stage, Ice Cube also teased there will be "some great visuals", which could be mean the late Eazy-E could be projected onto a big screen in some form.

As well as taking to the stage at Coachella in April, Ice Cube and  N.W.A. will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on 8 April.

Ice Cube's last reunion with his N.W.A. friends was with DJ Yella and MC Ren at the BET Experience in the run up to release of the movie Straight Outta Compton.

The film tells the story of how the hip hop group was formed in the late 80s and the effect their revolutionary rap music about the disenfranchisement of young Africa/Americans had on the US.

Ice Cube joins a stellar line-up at Coachella, which already sees the reunion of the original Guns 'N Roses members, superstar DJ Calvin Harris headline and LCD Soundsystem performing together live for the first time in 2011.
