Dr. Dre has been cooking up records since he dropped his 2015 project, Compton, and some of it will be released on the soundtrack for a popular video game. While speaking to Rolling Stone’s “Music Now” podcast, Snoop Dogg confirmed that the producer has new music on the way.
“I do know he’s in the studio. I do know he’s making great fucking music,” said the “Gin and Juice” emcee before revealing the platform where fans should expect to hear the songs. “Some of his music is connected to the GTA (Grand Theft Auto) game that’s coming out,” he continued. “I think that that will be the way that his music will be released, through the GTA video game.”
Dre, for the most part, has managed to keep a low profile, but he sporadically posts on social media. Though he hasn’t discussed his new music, he did share an inspirational message he received from his “brother” Snoop, who’s been alongside him as he works on his new album.
“Ever since I was fuckin’ with you before I was fuckin’ with you, you could always take pain, anger, frustration, anything that was negative and you could get something positive out of it,” said the “Beautiful” emcee. “That’s why you the doctor.”
“They say Snoop Dogg is an icon, he’s a God, he’s a king, but there’s one nigga to honor, and that’s you,” he continued. “So you get your shit right and focus on being great. Take all that negative energy, all that shit that you dealing with: the death, the fucking lawsuits, all that shit, put it all in your mind and your spirit and make something magical, nigga.”
Prior to that, Dr. Dre announced that he will headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show along with Kendrick Lamar, Snoop, Eminem and Mary J. Blige. “I’m extremely excited to share the stage with my friends for the #PepsiHalftime Show,” he wrote in his caption. “This will introduce the next saga of my career…Bigger and Better than Ever!!!”
