Is Dr. Dre going to be in the next GTA Online event?

Players can already listen to several Dr. Dre tracks in GTA V.

Gwil34, an Instagram travel influencer, chanced on the Master of Mixology who revealed to him that he's going to release new music for a Grand Theft Auto game in December. This coincides with Dr. Dre's launch window for his upcoming album, which would make it appear that Rockstar and Dr. Dre are cooking up a sequel performance to end the year.

If this is true, it wouldn't be the first time that Dr. Dre's been a part of a GTA game. He's lent several of his tracks to Grand Theft Auto V and San Andreas. He also appeared, albeit briefly, in one of the missions before the grand heist following 2020's Cayo Perico update. Meanwhile, Rockstar previously teased in its announcement that the upcoming event will have "well-known contacts and family friends."

Of course, it's best to take everything that we just said with a grain of salt. Until Rockstar or Dr. Dre officially confirm their involvement, nothing is for certain.
