Veteran rapper Snoop Dogg has let slip that fellow seminal rapper and producer Dr Dre will be releasing new music through the next Grand Theft Auto video game.
This will be the first new music from the famed American producer since his third studio album ‘Compton’ back in 2015. Those curious types would recognise that its frustration and rollout happened alongside the NWA biopic ‘Straight Outta Compton’.
So how’d the news get out? Speaking to Rolling Stone’s Music Now podcast Snoop D O GG said that;
“Some of his music is connected to the GTA game that’s coming out. So I think that will be the way that his music will be released, through the GTA video game,”
While we don’t have confirmation of a new album, there have been enough teasers hinting at a new full length from Dr Dre and most video game heads are aware that a new GTA is just around the corner so the timeline works!
Rockstar Games behind the modern GTA series to date has always been super progressive when it comes to their soundtracks. From Flying Lotus Radio to entire dance music-themed missions with Solomun, Moodymann and more it’s been at the forefront of the popular culture crossover.
