Dr.Dre Announces His Last And Final Album
 "Compton: A Soundtrack By Dr.Dre"
BHR Hollywood Reports.........Dr. Dre is set to release his first album in 15 years through Apple’s new streaming music service, the rapper announced on Saturday.

Entitled Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre, the project was inspired by the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton and will drop next week.

Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre is out Friday exclusively on iTunes' Apple Music subscription streaming service.

The new music is inspired by his work on music biopic Straight Outta Compton, out Aug. 14, which tracks his rise with Ice Cube and the late Eazy-E as part of rap group N.W.A.

“I felt myself being so inspired by the movie that I started to record an album,” Dr Dre said during his radio show. “It’s going to be my grand finale. The record is bananas.”

The hip-hop industry had long expected Detox, the rapper and producer’s notoriously long-delayed third album, to be his “grand finale.”

But Dre said on Saturday that the album he has worked on since the early 2000s will never see the light of day. “I didn’t like it. It wasn’t good,” he said. “I worked my a** off on it, and I don’t think I did a good enough job.”

The album’s release on Apple Music comes as no surprise, as Dr. Dre’s headphone company, Beats Electronics, was acquired by Apple in 2014.

The company, co-founded by music industry exec Jimmy Iovine, became an integral part of Apple Music when it was released in late June.
