    Much to Meek Mill's delight, Drake and Co. opted out of their OVO Radio show on Beats 1 tonight due to OVO Fest, so in their place, Dr. Dre hosted a show of his own. Entitled "The Pharmacy," this week's edition had Ice Cube and "Straight Outta Compton" director F. Gary Gray guesting, and the announcement of Dre's upcoming album Compton: The Soundtrack.

    Tomorrow, Dr. Dre is dropping... something. Ice Cube said as much in an interview earlier this week, calling the release in question "an album inspired by the "Compton" movie," referring to the August 14th N.W.A. biopic that he, Dre and director F. Gary Gray have been working on. But will this be just another "music inspired by the film"-style soundtrack? Or something bigger?

    Long in-the-works N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton" is finally scheduled to drop two weeks from Friday (on August 14th), but what about its almost equally-hyped soundtrack? Earlier this month, we got word from director F. Gary Gray that Dr. Dre would be executive producing, and it would feature Eminem and Kendrick Lamar, which only made for more anticipation. Yesterday, Ice Cube let slip that the album will arrive on Friday.

    Depending on when you were born, you might see as Ice Cube as one of two people. The first one, for our younger readers, is the lovable character from "Barber Shop," "Are We There Yet?" or "21 Jump Street." For our older audience, it's probably the angry gangster rapper who was a member of N.W.A. and released The Predator.

    Samples Of The Week: August 21

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".

    It's clear that Ice Cube's lifestyle has changed quite a bit from his days in NWA. Fans have adjusted to seeing him in family-oriented movies like "Are We There Yet?", but for the most part, his music has stuck within the genre of gangsta rap. Thus, his newest single, "Drop Girl", came as a bit of surprise, sporting features from 2 Chainz and LMFAO's Redfoo, and sporting a more EMD-leaning beat.
