STREAM: Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre

In light of the new movie “Straight Out of Compton” featuring the rise of Dr. Dre’s prolific hip-hop group N.W.A., the doctor released his third studio album, “Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre”. This album features a collaboration of new beats and upcoming rappers that California is displaying recently. With songs such as Genocide, featuring Compton’s own Kendrick Lamar, showcasing the ever changing style of west coast hip hop, “Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre” is a fresh take on how far hip-hop has come since the days of N.W.A. The ever smooth Dr. Dre infuses his classic bass heavy beats with laid back jazz riffs that remain as fresh as “2001”. It may not be as influential as “The Chronic” or “2001” will ever be but it’s still great to hear Dr. Dre put out an album that is a taste of what his neighborhood has evolved into. Stream it for free on Apple Music and decide for yourself.
