On August 3rd, Dr. Dre announced Compton: A Soundtrack, his first new record in 16 years. Now, it looks like he's got a big (philanthropic) idea for its profits.

The album drops tomorrow, and last night the good Dr. called into Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio show to talk about the process of writing it. But the Compton native also let slip his plan for what he's doing with his royalties - giving them away. Specifically, he wants to donate them to the construction of a performing arts center in his home city.

The official audio of the interview hasn't been released yet, but according to Complex Dre also revealed that most of the record was written with two new artists, Justus and King Mez. We'll be able to hear their efforts tomorrow, when Compton: A Soundtrack drops on iTunes and Apple Music. If you can't wait that long, Apple Music is running a preview stream tonight at 6pm PST.
