Rap Treats #26: N.W.A. Live At Celebrity Arena (1989)

Some more rare rap shit. This is N.W.A. Live At The Celebrity Arena circa 1989. This isn't the concert from the 'Boyz In The Hood' tour poster above (but I love old concert poster/flyers so I had to use it), it's a N.W.A. and Eazy-E concert from a few years later. I say N.W.A. AND Eazy-E because Eazy-E had top billin' back then. N.W.A. rocks first and then they bring out Eazy-E. It's a trip to hear Dr. Dre and Ice Cube intro Eazy and play the hype man role. It's basically just like the "We Want Eazy" video. I assume Celebrity Arena is in Compton because at the end of the show the crowd starts to wild out and you can hear some dude yell "Compton's in the house!" This is N.W.A. in Los Angeles at the height of their popularity. As a bonus, I also upped Eazy-E & Dr. Dre Live At The Roadium Swapmeet, which is a 10 minute Dr. Dre megamix hosted by Eazy Motherfuckin' E from 1986.
