In a new interview with Philadelphia’s Power 99, the rapper talks at length about the upcoming N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton alongside the film’s director F. Gary Gray — including some new details about the film’s soundtrack.
When DJ Mikey Dredd asked Ice Cube whether the soundtrack would include new N.W.A. music, the rapper replied that it would, adding that “Dre is dropping an album inspired by the Compton movie. He’s dropping something on August 1.”
He also confirmed that the whole album would be released the same day. “It’s mega, it’s Dr. Dre, it’s what everybody’s been waiting for,” he said. “It’s definitely a dope record, and he’s dropping it all on the same day.”
As for the rumored N.W.A. reunion tour, Cube says “it’s definitely, definitely possible.”
