Rockstar Games has announced a new story-based expansion coming to GTA featuring Hip Hop’s own Dr. Dre, set to arrive December 15th.
Rockstar Games Recruits Dr. Dre For New GTA Story
The new Dr. Dre storyline is entitled The Contract. This story sees players reunite with one of GTAV’s three main protagonists, Franklin Clinton. Working at his “celebrity solutions agency,” Clinton & Partner, players will also link up with another fan fave, Lamar Davis, as they work on a contract for their high-profile client Dr. Dre.
Not only does the legendary producer/rapper lend his likeness and voice to the game, frequent collaborator Anderson .Paak also makes a brief appearance in the trailer for The Contract up top.
According to GTA, their online expansion will have “exclusive brand new tracks from Dr. Dre alongside a heavy-hitting lineup of artists.” A new radio station will also be added to the game, and Rockstar teases that it’ll feature “some very special guest hosts.” In addition, access to The Contract is free for all owners of Grand Theft Auto V, as with previous additions to the ever-expanding online portion of the game.
Dr. Dre OTW To The SuperBowl
In addition to being featured in video games, Dr. Dre is also set to headline this year’s SuperBowl Halftime Show sponsored by Pepsi.
The NFL Super Bowl halftime show musical performers have been announced and it’s looking like a must-see event is in the making featuring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige. But with the NFL’s complicated history towards protests against police brutality, the lineup has fans wondering if shots – or reconciliation – will be on the agenda.
