Dr. Dre Compton A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre Album Cover Lo

It’s official, Detox is dead. But there is a new Dr. Dre album on the way.

Yes, the legendary producer has announced a real deal, brand new full-length album titled Compton: A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre.

Dre made the announcement during his Beats 1 radio show The Pharmacy, saying, “Detox didn’t come out because I didn’t like it. It wasn’t good. I’ma keep it 1000. I couldn’t do that to my fans.”

Dre’s follow-up to 2001 is finally on the way nearly 16 years later and was inspired by the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton. Featuring the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Xzibit, Ice Cube, Marsha Abrosius, and many, many more. According to Dre, he was so inspired that he did an album “under wraps” and it’s now finished. The best part? It drops in just six days on Friday, August 7th.

The cop who shot Sam DuBose is a asshole. I hope he gets life or death sentence for that. Rest in peace Sam DuBose.

Sandra Bland’s Death Should Open Eyes

Justin Burnell:

Sending players for Sandra Bland’s family and friends. God rest her soul.

Everyday for one reason or another, or even no reason at all, minorities are harassed and detained by unjust police officers. Everyday. Behind the badge and with the unwavering support of others like themselves, these infallible idiots use the power afforded them to strip human beings of their right to freedom, and like animals they throw them in cages. Assisted by magistrate who neither care nor pretend to care about minorities as individuals. They dole out immediate sentences without once looking into the victims dark faces or hearing their side of the story. In a rare instance they may happen to look up just to give that look of disdain, the kind a Mom gives after a cookie jar raid, then simply go with whatever story the cop has written down and make you sign your life away.

If you’ve never felt the cold of jail cell, just try to…

Four Marines and One Sailor Killed In Military Center Shootings In Chattanooga, Tennessee

A naval officer died early Saturday morning from wounds sustained in the Chattanooga, Tennessee shooting that previously claimed the lives of four marines on Thursday.

Randall Smith was a naval petty officer who worked as a logistics specialist. Family members say he was wounded after warning people of the gunman Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez’s presence at the Navy Operational Support Center:

Smith saw the shooter and warned people around him, according to family members. But he was unable to get away. Smith was shot in the liver, colon and stomach, said his grandmother, Linda Wallace.

Authorities have seized four guns associated with Abdulazeez, and are still investigating a possible motive. Mourners gathered in Chattanooga for a prayer service on Friday, and a Texas Roadhouse photo of a table dedicated to the marines who died on Thursday has been making the social media rounds.

Mitchelle Blair, the mother who admitted to killing two of her children and hiding their bodies in a deep freezer, was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole on Friday.

Blair pleaded guilty in June to first-degree murder and urged the judge to give her the death penalty if Michigan had it. In the closing statement before the sentencing, Judge Dana Hathaway stated,

“As a mother, one of your primary responsibilities was to protect your kids. And in that respect, you failed in the worst possible way. You imposed the death penalty on your own children. Thankfully, that house of horrors that you created is no longer in existence.”

Blairs two surviving kids, ages 17 and 8, have been placed with an aunt.

If you got geeked at the sight of Marvel adopting the Jewel Runners’ salute for a couple of covers earlier this year, prepare to nerd the f*ck out. Marvel is again diving into the world of hip-hop on a new line called Hip-Hop Variants, which will feature covers that pay homage to some of the genre’s most iconic albums – and their artwork.

Uproxx was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at some of the tributes, which fans will be able to get their hands on in October. Below, take a look at a handful of the covers available, side-by-side with the album artwork that inspired them.

Comic Con 2015 – Suicide Squad Trailer

Justin Burnell:

That shit was totally incredible. I can’t go see it when it comes. The Joker’s laugh was crazy. The cast of the film like Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robie, and Adam Beach are in it.

Originally posted on Bookshelf Battle:

Hey 3.5 Readers,

BQB here with some thoughts on the Suicide Squad trailer:

The official story is this trailer was only intended for Comic Con but DC decided to release it because nerds had pirated it and distributed it so they figured they might as well put out a quality version.

If you’re a nerd who isn’t in the know, the Suicide Squad is basically DC’s version of Dirty Dozen.

Based on a DC comic series of the same name, the government forces/recruits the DC villains (mostly Batman’s enemies) to use their evil powers for good, sending them on high-risk, practically suicidal missions.

Overall, the footage looks great and Jared Leto, in my opinion, looks like he’s going to be a better Joker than I’d originally given him credit for.

Like most geeks, I’m a big Harley Quinn fan.  If you’re not a nerd, Harley is the Joker’s girlfriend who got…
