Dr. Dre Talks Legacy, In Illustrated Form

New Headline
Jena Ardell

Dr. Dre's just released his new album, the soundtrack to Straight Outta Compton. "The soundtrack is insane," the movie's director, F. Gary Grey, told MTV. "You can hear some of his influences, with jazz and soul and a little bit of funk."

The soundtrack marks Dre's first album release in fifteen years, both good and bad news for fans still waiting for Dre's Detox to drop.  (Will Detox be shelved for good?—who knows).

Straight Outta Compton hits U.S. theatres August 14. We suspect this movie is going to crush box office records. Here's what Dr. Dre has said about himself and his legacy. Quotation above via vibe.com.
