Dr. Dre released a much anticipated album last night on iTunes...his first in nearly 16 years. It’s called Compton, and it’s a companion album to the “Straight Outta Compton” movie that comes out next week. The movie tells the story of Dre’s group N.W.A., and how their seminal album made rap history. We speak with KCRW DJ Garth Trinidad about Straight Outta Compton and how the album spoke to him when it came out.
