Description

The new album was inspired by the movie "Straight Outta Compton", which tells the story of the hip hop formation N. W.A and thus the rise of Dr. Dre. "After I saw the first footage of the film, I went straight from the set to the studio and was just inspired. I started recording an album, a soundtrack. I was still keeping it a secret, but now it's done," he told his radio show.

After his milestones "The Chronic" (1992) and "2001" (1999), fans have had to wait a long time for a new work by Dr. Dre, who is one of the most influential personalities in hip hop and has discovered and produced Eminem and 50 Cent, among others. Now the time has finally come: With "Compton", the master pulls out all the stops and has invited all his friends to the studio. They include Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, The Game, Marsha Ambrosius, Jill Scott and many other guests.

In the radio show, however, Dr. Dre also announced at the same time: "This will be my last album. All my friends have come. It's my grand finale."

Reviews

"Dr Dre holds his own: his return as a hip-hop fairytale uncle is better than any of us could have guessed." (musikexpress, October 2015)

"Ideally, music creates images in the listener's mind. Dr. Dre goes one step further: his third album lets an entire film emerge. Fittingly, Campton is subtitled A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre." (MINT, January 2016)
