Though it's subtitled, "A Soundtrack," this is not the soundtrack to the NWA biopic "Straight Outta Compton," which has put the polarizing and pioneering hip-hop group back in the spotlight. "Compton" is Dre's first album since 1999's "2001," so it comes with pretty high expectations. He's hardly been quiet, as he's still an in demand producer, scrapped "Detox," making it something like hip-hop's "Smile," and made like a zillion dollars with Beats. "Compton," while it sounds great, feels like an album that should've come out a decade ago. Dre's never been a great rapper, hence the heavy reliance on guest stars, and his lyrical depth is, well, non-existent. You'd think that someone who has been though as much as Dre would be a little more reflective, but that take away here is that he's successful and has made a lot of money. The highlight is the featured artists, which connect Dre's past (Cube, Eminem) to rap's future (Kendrick Lamar, Anderson.Paak), with some no-names (King Mez, Justus) along the way. If you want a better sense of the current state of hip-hop, you'd be better off listening to Kendrick's or Paak's recent albums.
