Dr. Dre Addresses Ex-Wife In New Grand Theft Auto Song Featuring Eminem

Dr. Dre Grand Theft Auto

Yesterday, Dr. Dre officially released the 6 songs he made for “Grand Theft Auto Online: The Contract” on all streaming platforms as singles.

On “Gospel” featuring Eminem, the Beats mogul seemingly addresses his ex-wife’s divorce settlement.

The 56-year-old mega producer, rhymes, “N***a like me still here, motherf****r, go figure. Lookin’ for my next gold digger. This summer here gon’ be colder than winter.” Dre adds, “Already told you, I fold you like hundreds of billions, and you can go missing, put that on my children.”

Dr. Dre agreed to pay his ex-wife, Nicole Young $100 million as a part of their divorce settlement. Reportedly Dre was “delighted” that he had to only pay a fraction of his estate. Nicole attempted to contest a prenuptial agreement in the divorce that she filed from Dre that ended their 25 years of marriage. That agreement protected Dre from splitting half his estate and the responsibility of spousal support, amongst other assets.

The former member of N.W.A shared his exclusive Grand Theft Auto singles to the world just ahead of his set at the 2022 Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. The big event is scheduled to take place February 13, at L.A.’s SoFi Stadium. This year Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will headline the show.

“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,” The Chronic producer shared in a statement. “I’m grateful to Jay-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL, and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment.”

Anderson .Paak Celebrates Bill Withers’ Legacy: “Legends Never Die”

Bill Withers Remembered By Anderson .Paak

West Coast rapper Anderson .Paak is still riding for the life of Bill Withers. The hip-hop crooner has shared footage of himself putting propers respect on the late musician’s name.

Big Facts

.Paak went to Instagram last night with some must-see footage. He shared a snippet from his IG Live session with Withers’ music playing in the background.

“REST EASY #BILLWITHERS WE LOVE YOU!!! LEGENDS NEVER DIE!! #FRIDANCE#PAAKHOUSERADIO” -Anderson .Paak’s Instagram

High-Key Details

On Friday, a couple of celebrity superstars remembered Withers. Both rap heavyweight Nas and retired NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal saluted Bill on their social media pages.

“Lovely Day, Lean On Me, Grandma’s Hands. All Timeless Songs. Thank you for giving us so much. Peace Bill Withers” -NasInstagram

“REST IN POWER UNCLE BILL @90shiphopjunkie thanks for this”

Wait, There’s More

According to reports, Withers actually passed away earlier in the week. Despite his death happening on Monday, it didn’t turn into national news until Friday.

The three-time Grammy Award winner, who withdrew from making music in the mid-1980s, died on Monday in Los Angeles, the statement said. His death comes as the public has drawn inspiration from his music during the coronavirus pandemic, with health care workers, choirs, artists and more posting their own renditions on “Lean on Me” to help get through the difficult times.

Before You Go

Bill’s music has played a major role in both pop and political culture. Former presidents have embraced his tunes and they’ve also landed on highly prestigious music lists.

Lean On Me, a paean to friendship, was performed at the inaugurations of both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. Ain´t No Sunshine and Lean on Me are among Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. ‘He’s the last African-American Everyman,’ musician and band leader Questlove told Rolling Stone in 2015. ‘Bill Withers is the closest thing black people have to a Bruce Springsteen.’ (Daily Mail)
