  • New Dr. Dre Album to Debut Exclusively Through Apple Services This Friday


    On Friday, the newest album from Dr. Drop will drop -- a musical masterpiece that has been in the works for well over a decade, we're told.

    The prominent recording icon confirmed over the weekend that his third solo album will arrive exclusively on Apple Music and iTunes this Friday, August 7th.

    The timing, of course, is perfect. The album, which is titled Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre, is dropping just one week before the new N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton hits theaters Aug. 14th.

    “I was leaving the set, going to the studio, and I felt myself just being so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album,” the Beats co-founder said on Saturday. “I kept it under wraps, and now the album is finished. It’s an ‘inspired-by’ album, it’s inspired by Straight Outta Compton.”

    This is Dr. Dre's first album release since 1999.

      Q: What is the difference between a Audi and a porcupine?

      A: Porcupines have pricks on the outside.

      Amazing how Apple can apply the right pressure. I guess this was all part of the Beats acquisition.

      If he was inspired to make it during production of the movie to but it has been more than a decade in the making, then the movie was in production over a decade ago too. Somehow, I doubt that.
