by Kia Imani
With the long awaited Straight Outta Compton movie set to release August 14, many questioned if there would be a soundtrack to match.
Earlier today (August 1), F Gary Gray took to his Twitter to announce that next week ‘Compton: The Soundtrack’, which was inspired by the movie, would be available on iTunes and Apple Music August 7, 2015.

The always hard on himself Dre explained to Beats 1 about his true feelings regarding his past project, Detox:
“This is something you’re not gonna hear many artists say, the reason the Detox didn’t come out was because I didn’t like. It wasn’t good. The record, it just wasn’t good. I’ma keep it all the way 1000 with you, I mean seriously, I worked my ass off on it, but I didn’t think I did a good enough job. I couldn’t do that to myself to be honest.”
