Our Thoughts on "Compton"


Dr. Dre has had us glued to Compton since his soundtrack release on Friday, and is still keeping the momentum going with brilliant marketing all across LA — and even the nation.

Along with taking over the radio with his album, his digital team dropped the Straight Outta Somewhere IG templates. Where fans can recreate the Straight Outta Compton artwork and add their own hood.

He even had an aerial team over LA to remind us of his movie and soundtrack.

Although, we’re excited and are counting down the days until the Straight Outta Compton movie drops, we’re proud to say almost all the features on the album have stopped by our Sway in the Morning studios!

Here’s what Sway thinks about it…

“I’m enjoying ‘Compton,’ I’m on my 3rd rotation. Love that artist that have been coming to Sway in the Morning/the Wakeup Show are big features on this album. Anderson Paak is a star, Jon Connor is putting Flint on the map heavy. Kendrick is embarking on a new stratosphere!  His influence can be heard throughout the album. Plus, for someone who’s been following Dr. Dre since The World Class Wreckin Cru, it’s exciting having him back in full stride. Genocide is my muse today. No telling what it’ll be tomorrow.”
