*We don’t hear from legendary producer Dr. Dre very often, so when he talks, we listen. Dre recently did a sit down with Real 92.3’s Big Boy and discussed various topics including the making of “Nuthin’ But A G Thang” featuring Snoop Dogg, reconciling with Eazy-E before his death, and the upcoming N.W.A biopic, ‘Straight Outta Compton’.
At first, Dre reveals he didn’t even want to make the F. Gary Gray directed film.
“I was worried about it at the beginning,” said Dre. “I didn’t even want to do the movie. [Ice] Cube quarterbacked. He got the first draft of the script done. I read it and was like, ‘Okay, we can work with this. We can turn this into something.’ Then when Gary Gray got on board, I was in.”
And according to Dre, an original soundtrack to the film could happen. And it could have all new tracks, as opposed to music from the group’s catalog.
“I think this would be a record that’s inspired by the movie,” stated Dre.
