Ice Cube, director F. Gary Gray, and the cast of Straight Outta Compton stopped by Power 99 FM earlier this morning (July 29) to talk about the themes of the upcoming movie, working with the cast, and a possible reunion tour. In the midst of the interview, Cube dropped some tantalizing news.
When asked about the soundtrack for the movie at around the 10:20 mark, Cube let loose that Dr. Dre is releasing an album “inspired by Compton” on August 1. What that means for now is anyone’s guess, but the thought of new Dr. Dre music is enough to keep us interested. Straight Outta Compton is in theaters August 14.
