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.'”

The cable network, known for it’s biopics, made the announcement on Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

“And before the wedding of the year takes place between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Lifetime will debut a movie revealing how the stars aligned for this royal romance,” said Lifetime’s head of programming Liz Gateley.

Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story  (working title) will trace Prince Harry and Markle’s relationship from the day they met to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their eventual engagement, which was announced in November. It will also touch on their courtship after they were set up by mutual friends and depict Markle’s life as a divorced American actress.

Menhaj Huda, who helmed an episode of E!’s fictional Royal Family series The Royals is on hand to direct. Casting is currently underway.

No official date has been announced, but given Lifetime’s track record, fans should expect the movie to release a few days before the couples May 19 wedding. Back in 2011, Lifetime aired William & Kate: The Movie just days before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married on April 29.
