The busy rapper was recently at the White House for the My Brother's Keeper initiative.  Gotta love him.

Over on the West Coast, Dr. Dre finally showed up to Coachella with NWA:

He missed weekend 1 and it got folks to talking.  Maybe he was unavailable, but he was all about the Indio desert this past weekend.   DJ Yella, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and MC Ren headlined onstage at the Empire Polo Club.

The fellas brought out their fellow Compton homie Kendrick Lamar:

Big Boi made a cameo during Run The Jewels' performance and joined Andre 3000 for an Outkast cameo while fellow ATL rapper Killer Mike performed. Mike said:

This has been one of my proudest moments. Big and Dre being part of this RTJ main stage Coachella experience has been truly Something precious and holy. 16 yrs ago they changed my life and I wud not be here in this moment in this way had that opportunity not be given. I worked and proved my self worthy and I am grateful for the men that saw fit to give me the chance to do so. @therealbigboi & Stacks thank Y'all. I love and respect u both!
