If you’re looking to hear Dr Dre’s first album since we were all up in arms about Y2K, you’ll need to go through Apple – as it’s an iTunes and Apple Music exclusive.
But if you have Apple Music, which you probably should, as it’s still free for most of you, you can listen to it this Thursday evening.
Compton: A Soundtrack will be streaming at 6pm ET on August 6th. The album hits iTunes the next day.

And it looks like it’s going to be uncensored, unlike everything else that Apple Streams on its Beats 1 radio.
Listen to the premiere of @drdre new album, Compton. Uncensored & exclusively on @AppleMusic, from 6pm – 9pm PDT Thursday August 6th.

I guess when you’re an executive at the company, you can pull some strings.
