Opening Up for Eazy-E and NWA
Common talks about the first time his rap group opened for a professional music group in Chicago, who eventually became known as "Ice Cube"
- The group that I was in CDR, we opened up for Eazy-E and NWA, Too Short and Big Daddy Kane. So for us, that was like we thought we had made it. Chicago kids are getting to open up for Eazy-E and NWA. Our whole neighborhood was there. Everybody was there. All our friends. We had dancers. The dancers were the thing then. It was cool. It was real It was one of the most fun moments I had in my life. But I actually talked to Ice Cube about that like because that was his first time going to the Midwest. And it was amazing how it came full circle because that was the first show we got to open up for anybody professional. And it became Ice Cube who I had a battle with. And then I eventually did a movie with years later. So that concert was incredible.
