On Monday, Diggin’ in the Crates legend Diamond D took to Instagram to reveal he’s heard some unreleased new material from Dre.
“@drdre played about 2hrs of straight unreleased heat rocks for me and @xzibit today,” Diamond D captioned a picture of himself and Dre in the studio. “#ondeck shouts out to @focus3dots.”
The news arrives just a week after another hip-hop legend, Grandmaster Flash, teased previously unheard music from Dre.
“I get a call from one of my heroes he invites me to the CRIB he takes me down to the STUDIO he played me a project that will change the game!!” Flash wrote in an Instagram post.
Of course, fans will just have to wait and see if and when Dr. Dre decides to drop a full-length offering. The 56-year-old mogul hasn’t released a proper studio album since 2015’s Compton, which arrived 16 years after his critically acclaimed ’99 sophomore album 2001.
