According to legendary Hip Hop artist Snoop Dogg, revealed during an interview on an upcoming Rolling Stone’s Music Now podcast, Dr. Dre is working on music for an as-of-yet unannounced Grand Theft Auto game. Described frankly as “Great fucking music”, this would be the first sign of Dr. Dre creating anything new since his 2015 album Compton.
Rolling Stone reached out to Rockstar Entertainment for comment, but the representative of the video game developer declined to comment. In addition, a representative of Dr. Dre didn’t respond to a request for comment by the music publication.
This isn’t the first time a Grand Theft Auto game has had original music composed by famous artists. GTA 5 had an original score penned by American musician and producer The Alchemist alongside rapper Oh No and electronic group Tangerine Dream. Dr. Dre however stands out as an astounding guest composer if what Snoop Dogg is saying proves to be true. The artist is best known for his contributions to the Hip Hop genre both as a solo artist and as part of Rap group N.W.A.
