It's been 16 years since Dr. Dre released 2001, but the wait for a new album from the Doctor is almost over.

On Friday, August 7, as Ice Cube hinted at last week, Dre will release Compton A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre, an 18-track album inspired by the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton.

DJBooth was in attendance at an exclusive Apple Music event during Dr. Dre's Beats 1 radio program, The Pharmacy, which took place at the rap pioneer's private residence on Saturday afternoon.

According to Dre, Compton A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre was written and recorded throughout the making of the new film.
