You had to hear it last night (Saturday August 1st) to believe it: the iconic Dr Dre is releasing a new LP.

Revealed via his own Apple Music radio show, the third album from the legendary West Coast rapper will be titled, Compton, and is set for release on 7 August.

The announcement comes as something of a surprise, with listeners tuned in to Dre’s ‘The Pharmacy’ show on Apple Music believing Dre and fellow member of N.W.A, Ice Cube, were set to talk about the upcoming movie, ‘Straight Out Of Compton’, as well as discussing it’s soundtrack.
