Listen to N.W.A. on iHeartRadio

Ice Cube is hoping to reunite on record with his N.W.A. partner Dr. Dre. 

Cube tells MTV News he's "trying to convince" Dre to record some new music together for their upcoming N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton.  

Apart from a possible N.W.A reunion, he says the soundtrack will likely include a mixture of original and reworked N.W.A. songs. 

As for the film's progress, Cube says they plan to start shooting on location in Compton this August.  He also says the cast will be revealed in the coming weeks and will consist of mostly unknown actors.  One of those unknowns is rumored to be Ice Cube's own son, O'Shea Jackson Jr., who will play his father.
