Dre’s last album was The Chronic 2001 back in 1999, and since then, there had been talks of an upcoming album ‘Detox’ which after being in the works for over 16 years was dismissed by the doctor because “it wasn’t good.”

  Last weekend he announced a new album after being inspired by working on the NWA movie ‘Straight Outta Compton’ which will end 16 years drought of releases. Well, the album has been released and it features Kendrick Lamar along with BJ The Chicago Kid, Xzibit, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem among others, and they even dusted off 20 year old Eazy E vocals for a nice surprise.

“It All Started Here.”
