Dr. Dre is producing some of his first songs since 2015—and they're going to be revealed in a new Grand Theft Auto game.
Dr. Dre's long-term collaborator Snoop Dogg will reveal in a Rolling Stone podcast that Dre will be releasing tracks as part of an unannounced GTA sequel. Snoop will also be featured in the game.
"I do know he's in the studio. I do know he's making great f*cking music. And 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," Snoop Dogg said on the show.
If Snoop Dogg's claims are reliable, it would be Dr. Dre's first new release since his critically acclaimed 2015 album, Compton. Snoop was discovered by Dre himself in the early 1990s.
This year a number of rap and hip hop legends have confirmed that Dre is working on new music.
Producer Diamond D said that he and musician Xzibit got to hear "about two hours of straight unreleased heat rocks", while Public Enemy's Flavor Flav said he has recorded a new song with Dre.
GTA remaster trilogy trailer and release date finally drop – fans blown away by graphics
The next Grand Theft Auto game, a follow-up to Grand Theft Auto V, has not yet been officially announced, and developers Rockstar declined to comment on Snoop's claims.
GTA V is officially the best selling piece of entertainment ever, outselling even the Avengers series.
Leaks suggest that the new GTA will return once more to Vice City, the Miami-inspired locale that was the setting for a titular early title in the series. Insiders claim that it will feature hurricanes, alligators, and get a November / December announcement.
Just this week, Rockstar unveiled the GTA Remastered Trilogy, which brings buffed-up versions of three classic games in the series to next-generation consoles.
Earlier this year, Dr. Dre was hospitalised with a brain aneurysm, but made a full recovery. He has also been the subject of a number of accusations of violence against women, to which he has made public apologies and legal settlements.
