“Compton” is a companion album to the NWA biopic “ Straight Outta Compton.”
Dr. Dre says this is more than just an album to him. All the proceeds from “Compton” will go to building a performing arts and entertainment facility in Compton, California.
“I feel it’s the right thing to do and I hope everybody appreciates the work I put into this album,” Dre said on his radio show, The Pharmacy.
