Dre also discussed the new album on his Beats 1 radio show The Pharmacy, stating Straight Outta Compton was his inspiration:

I felt myself being so inspired by the movie that I started to record an album. I kept it under wraps. The album is finished and will feature guests including Cube, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem and Snoop Dogg. It’s going to be my grand finale. The record is bananas.”
