The wait is over as hip hop’s super producer Dr. Dre announces he will release his new album in connection with the release of the movie, ‘Straight outta Compton’.
The album will be Dr. Dre’s first album in 15 years and will feature Ice Cube, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and more.
“I was leaving the set, coming to the studio and I felt myself just being so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album,” he can be heard saying in the video clip below. “And I kept it under wraps. And the album is finished.”
“It’s gonna be my grande finale, and the record is bananas” Dre added.
The album is be fittingly called ‘Compton: A Soundtrack’.

Compton: A Soundtrack can be pre-ordered on iTunes. The film Straight Outta Compton is set to hit theaters on Aug. 14.
Dre also explained why he never released the long-awaited planned album Detox: “It just wasn’t good.”
“The reason Detox didn’t come out was because I didn’t like it,” Dre said. “ I don’t think I did a good enough job, and I couldn’t do that to my fans and I couldn’t do that to myself, to be perfectly honest with you. I just wasn’t feeling it.”
