DR. DRE HAD 'NO IDEA' WHAT 'GRAND THEFT AUTO' WAS ABOUT BEFORE 'THE CONTRACT' COLLAB

Rockstar Games announced a blockbuster partnership with Dr. Dre last week as part of the latest — and arguably most exciting — update to Grand Theft Auto Online.

Out today (December 15), GTA Online: The Contract boasts an in-game appearance from Dre, as well as a slew of exclusive new music from the legendary producer, including collaborations with Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, Anderson .Paak, Ty Dolla $ign and the late Nipsey Hussle.

Despite playing a major part in the game’s latest expansion, Dr. Dre was clueless about Grand Theft Auto prior to his partnership with the iconic video game franchise. That’s according to fellow West Coast Hip Hop production veteran DJ Pooh, who spoke to Rolling Stone for a story about how The Contract came about.

“[Dre] had no idea what [Grand Theft Auto] was about because he’s not a gamer at all,” he said. “He never played them.” Considering he was 32 years old when the first Grand Theft Auto title hit shelves — not to mention his laser-focused dedication to his craft — it isn’t too surprising to learn Dre was unfamiliar with GTA.
