Dr. Dre has been very active in the music industry since the release of his sophomore album 2001! So, you might have forgotten that the prolific producer's last album was released in 1999!
But the Nuthin' but a "G" Thang rapper's musical hiatus will shortly come to an end. It's been announced that Dre will release his first new album in over 15 years!
This weekend, the 50-year-old announced on Apple Music's Beats 1 radio that he would be debuting Compton: A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre on Friday, August 7!
The Beats By Dre creator explained that the inspiration for his return to the recording studio was the
Are you ready for the ultimate '90s rap throwback???
The wait for the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton is over because the flick is set to be released in theaters this August! And if that's not enough, this month Ice Cube is reuniting MOST of the surviving members of the iconic rap group to perform for the first time in 15 years!
The rapper slash actor is excited to get the group back together for a one night show, which is part of the four-day BET Experience festival.
The 45-year-old was confident the band was "gonna rock that sh*t, no problem," but not ALL of the surviving members may be present for the performance!
When asked if former group member Dr. Dre would make an appearance, the Friday star said:
Things just do not get better for Suge Knight.
Not only is the 50-year-old facing murder as well as attempted murder charges, he's also being sued by Terry Carter's family for running him over that fateful night.
Terry's wife and children filed the lawsuit and are claiming both producers of Straight Outta Compton hired known gang members to protect the set and shoots in gang-infested neighborhoods.
The case is also claiming some of the gang members started the drama and threatened the rapper, which lead to his decision to drive through the parking lot recklessly and eventually running over Carter.
Carter's family is also suing the location where it happened. They're claiming Tam's Burgers often experience violent crimes in their parking lot so they should've had security to prevent things from happening.
Terry's family is seeking unspecified damages in their lawsuit.

Was Suge Knight's fatal hit and run that killed his friend Terry Carter triggered by the upcoming movie Straight Outta Compton?
We are now getting reports that Knight wanted to chat to the The Chronic rapper — who is one of the producers — about how he was being portrayed.
The first trailer for the anticipated NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton is here!
And just in case you were wondering if this was one of those unauthorized biopics where the artists don't really approve?
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see Cube and Dre today — before stepping back in time nearly 30 years to when it all began!
Parental Advisory though! This red band trailer is way NSFW!
He's saying no way to that!
Suge Knight were apparently claiming that the person that he ran over and killed with his car - Terry Carter - was bringing the former rap mogul to the set of the movie Straight Outta Compton at Dr. Dre's because he apparently wanted to stop the beef that had existed between the two for years.
But sources connected to the famed rap producer claim he "scoffed" when he heard what Suge Knight was reportedly telling people and he specifically DIDN'T want Suge on the movie's set because of the target he seems to always have on him
Those close to the highest paid musician of 2014 also find it pretty convenient that the only person who
Who's the top earning musician in the world?
The rapper and mogul has been named the number one highest paid musician by Forbes after selling his headphones company Beats to Apple; he reportedly earned $620 million before taxes in 2014!
Bey was unsurprisingly number two on that list, but her earnings only came in at $115 million.
That is a $505 million difference!!! Wow!
The Eagles took third, making $100 million with their History of the Eagles tour. The rest of the list brought along some familiar names!
