Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. Iíve been married for 19 years and every day Iím working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. Iím doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again. I apologize to the women Iíve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.
Dee Barnes has written an essay for Gawker titled "Here's What's Missing From Straight Outta Compton: Me and the Other Women Dr. Dre Beat Up," detailing her experience being assaulted at the hands of Dr. Dre and her reaction to the new N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, which ignores Dre's violence towards women entirely. One of the most disturbing pieces of information is that the Compton director F. Gary Gray was the cameraman filming the interview between Barnes and Ice Cube that led to her assault. I can not encourage you to read the entire piece here enough.
Dr. Dre has announced his first album in 16 years, titled Compton A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre. It's releasing through Aftermath/Interscope and available exclusively on Apple Music this Friday (Aug. 7th). The new album will feature Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg and others.

After more than a decade of false starts and teases, Dr. Dre's perpetually delayed Detox has apparently been renamed. The news comes from an Aftermath producer who says it was changed about two years ago, but declines to actually disclose the new title.
According to a new interview with Complex, Kendrick Lamar has been hard at work on his forthcoming album, stating that he has around 30-40 songs done. The rapper expects to drop the project before the end of the year, and says he has been working with Dr. Dre, among others.
But now that Kendrick, 27, is a hysteria-inducing star, the world is waiting to see if he can deliver twice. Expectations are high. After good kid, good simply wonít be good enough. Unlike GKMC, which Kendrick planned years in advance, thereís no cover art in mind for the follow-up. As for a title, Kendrick says heís ďflirting with ideas.Ē Heís been working primarily with TDEís in-house producers, Tae Beast and...
It seems like there is some discussion going on about a possible tour featuring Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and the Tupac Shakur "hologram" that made its appearance at Coachella this weekend. Factoid: Since the virtual Tupac was 2D and not 3D, it is not technically a hologram.
Head to the replies to check out Dr. Dre's video for "I Need a Doctor" featuring Eminem and Skylar Grey. This is the latest single off his upcoming album Detox, which is set to be released sometime this year.
