Though the impact of Prince's death is still reverberating through the music industry, it seemed as if the legendary musician's passing wasn't quite as prevalent in the feel of the second day of the second weekend of this year's Coachella music festival; unlike Friday's fest, where tons of artists across the spectrum covered various Prince songs, Saturday's edition featured only a couple of artists actually playing hits by the artist (including british livetronica duo Disclosure teasing a bit of "Purple Rain"), with most -- ranging from new chanteuse Zella Day to metal reunitors Guns N' Roses -- acknowledging his impact while dedicating their own work to the artist. During the GNR set, Duff McKagan even displayed the Prince Glyph on his bass
That's not to say there wasn't anything interesting or different on the field from week one, most notably Ice Cube's star-laden set. During weekend 1, he promised an N.W.A. reunion, but it was only during his Weekend 2 set that he actually fully delivered: after playing "Straight Outta Compton" and "Fuck the Police" with bandmates MC Ren and DJ Yella (and a snippet of "Boyz in the Hood" with Eazy-E's son, Young E,) Cube fully-formed the reunion to rabid applause by bringing up Dr. Dre. Since Dre never rapped on N.W.A.'s original output, though, acting soley as producer, the group laid into a newer classi: "Still D.R.E.", with the audience loudly rapping along every word. They followed it with "California Love," obviously eaten up as well.
