The project, which is available on Apple Music now, is complete with 16 new hits with features by Kendrick Lamar, Marsha Ambrosius, Jill Scott, Eminem, Ice Cube, the Game and of course, Snoop Dogg.

Dre’s anticipated album was also meant to go hand in hand with the release of his N.W.A biobic, Straight Outta Compton, in theaters on August 14. “During principal photography, I felt myself going to the studio and being so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album,” Dre, who also serves as the film’s prodder, said on The Pharmacy earlier this month. “I kept it under wraps, and now the album is finished. It’s bananas …. I’m really proud of this.”

And being the class act that the he is, instead of pocketing the artist royalties from the sure to be successful LP, the 50-year-old will be donating to help fund a new performing arts and entertainment facility in Compton. “I feel it’s the right thing to do and I hope everybody appreciates the work I put into this album,” the rapper told Rolling Stone.

He added that he’s been working with the city’s mayor, Aja Brown, on getting this off the ground. “I’ve been really trying to do something special for Compton and just couldn’t quite figure out what it was. She actually had this idea and she was already in the process of working on it. I said, ‘Boom, this is what we should do.'”

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
