We’ve been waiting over 15 years to say this… Dr. Dre’s new album is officially here! After deading Detox because it was crap, Dre found inspiration on set of the N.W.A. biopic, and Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre was born.
His first album since The Chronic 2001 arrived in ’99, Compton serves as a special ode to the city that raised him. Taking it a step further, the Good Doctor will also be donating all of his artist royalties from album sales to help build a community center for the youth.
“I reached out to the Compton mayor’s office, got in touch with the mayor, Aja Brown, and I’ve decided to donate all of my artist royalties from the sale of this album to help fund a new performing arts and entertainment facility for the kids in Compton. I’ve been really trying to do something special for Compton and just couldn’t quite figure out what it was. [Brown] actually had this idea, and she was already in the process of working on it. I said, ‘Boom, this is what we should do.’”
At 16 tracks, Compton features contributions from Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Xzibit, Candice Pillay, King Mez, and more.
