'[Dre] went deep and you can hear some of his influences, with jazz and soul and a little bit of funk,' the biopic's director F. Gary Grew said of the soundtrack.

AceShowbiz - In anticipation of the N.W.A biopic "Straight Outta Compton" which is scheduled for release next month, it's been revealed that Dr. Dre will feature his new music on its soundtrack. The news was shared by the film's director F. Gary Grew during a recent chat with MTV at Comic-Con in San Diego.

"Dr. Dre, it took him 15 years to step out and say, 'I want to do music again' in the way that he's doing it," said Grew before explaining what the soundtrack would be like and confirming Eminem and Kendrick Lamar's involvement in the project.

"The soundtrack is insane. Seriously, it's incredible. He went deep and you can hear some of his influences, with jazz and soul and a little bit of funk," he continued. "And Kendrick Lamar is on, Eminem; a lot of great guest stars. But it's really Dre and how he's evolved and how he's matured as not only a person, but as an artist. It's deep and it's great."

It's, however, still unknown if Em and Lamar would be assisting Dre on his new tracks or if they will record their own new material.

"Straight Outta Compton" stars O'Shea Jackson Jr. as his father Ice Cube, Corey Hawkins as Dre, Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E and Paul Giamatti as the group's manager, Jerry Heller. The biopic is hitting U.S. theaters on August 14. There's still no word on when the soundtrack will come out.
