Dr. Dre Scraps Detox, Announces Final Album Compton: A Soundtrack
Following rumors earlier in the week sparked by fellow N.W.A. rapper Ice Cube, the one and only Dr. Dre revealed Saturday during The Pharmacy radio show on Apple’s Beats 1 that his new album Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre will finally arrive on Aug. 7.
The new set will feature the likes of Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Jill Scott, Justus, BJ the Chicago Kid and more. It will also serve as a soundtrack for the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, as the film also served as inspiration for the LP.
The always hard on himself Dre also explained during the broadcast his true feelings regarding his past project, Detox which was scrapped:
“This is something you’re not gonna hear many artists say, the reason the Detox didn’t come out was because I didn’t like. It wasn’t good. The record, it just wasn’t good. I’ma keep it all the way 1000 with you, I mean seriously, I worked my ass off on it, but I didn’t think I did a good enough job. I couldn’t do that to myself to be honest.”
Unsurprisingly, Compton will be released exclusively on Apple Music and iTunes via Aftermath/Interscope Records.
