The California producer, whose last LP was ‘2001’, is taking care of the soundtrack for the N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton, handling all the production himself, with guest spots from Kendrick Lamar and Eminem.
Former N.W.A man Ice Cube spilled the beans about it on Philadelphia’s Rise & Grind radio show, saying: “It’s mega. It’s Dr Dre, it’s what everybody’s been waiting for. It’s definitely a dope record, and he’s dropping it all on the same day.”
The day Ice alludes to is August 1, although Rolling Stone believe it’ll be released at a later date. Expect to find out the date exactly on August 1, though, as Dre will reportedly confirm all details about the release on his Beats 1 show.
Straight Outta Compton hits screens on August 14 so we reckon we’ll be hearing the soundtrack within the next two weeks.
