If fans thought they were just getting new music from Dr. Dre with his new album Compton: A Soundtrack, then they need to think again.
Dr. Dre has big plans for Compton!
The legendary rapper and producer has decided to donate the proceeds from his new album to a charity in Compton to fund a new performing arts center in the city; something he’s been working closely on with Compton mayor, Aja Brown.
“I’ve been really trying to do something special for Compton and just couldn’t quite figure out what it was. She actually had this idea and she was already in the process of working on it. I said, ‘Boom, this is what we should do.'”
Compton, which serves as the unofficial soundtrack to the upcoming N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton, features guest appearances from some of Dre’s closest friends and rap artists like: Eminem, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar.
Dre has said that during the filming of S.O.C. he felt “inspired” by the movie and would go to the studio everyday to work on music, calling this album is his “grand finale.”
