New Grand Theft Auto Online Update Brings Dr. Dre and Anderson .Paak to Los Santos

Grand Theft Auto Online shares a preview of an incoming story expansion, The Contract, featuring a new song from Dr. Dre and Anderson .Paak, who appear together in a new trailer.

Last month, Snoop Dogg revealed longtime collaborator and former Death Row labelmate, Dr. Dre, was working on new music for an upcoming Grand Theft Auto title. Turns out that wasn’t quite the case. However, the legendary producer and one of his protegees are prominently featured in the newly announced GTA Online expansion, The Contract.

In a new trailer for the story update (the game’s first in years,) Dre and Anderson .Paak enter Los Santos and enlist a familiar face from GTA V to help them find a batch of unreleased songs that have gone missing. Shared by Rockstar Games on Twitter, the trailer previews one of several new songs from Dre that are slated to be in the expansion. The track, which sounds like a recalibration of Knxwledge and .Paak’s 1988 slowburner “itkanbe[sonice],” features verses from the NxWorries vocalist and Uncle Snoop.

According to Rockstar, new music from Dre (his first original releases since 2015’s Compton,) is just the tip of what’s packed into the update. The Contract will also overhaul the game’s already expansive artist-hosted radio stations, add new vehicles, artillery, and more. On top of all that, there’s no added expense, as the game will be free to those who purchased GTA V upon release on December 15th.

See Dr. Dre and Anderson .Paak in the trailer for Grand Theft Auto Online‘s The Contract expansion below.
