Dr. Dre made an appearance in The New Grand Theft Auto Online Game, Cayo Perico heist.
The legendary rapper and producer makes a guest appearance alongside Interscope Records co-founder Jimmy Iovine and DJ Pooh in a cut-from-play scene, which was released yesterday (December 15).
In the clip, which you can watch below, Dre arrives in a car with his associates and looks set to board the same plane as the game’s protagonist before retiring after learning his phone has been stolen.
It comes after it was recently revealed that The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas also runs an in-game radio station, with appearances from Mac DeMarco and comedian David Cross.
There have been many guest stars in RGT franchisee over the years. Actors such as Juliette Lewis, comedians like Ricky Gervais, and even musician Phil Collins have appeared in the games, often giving performances as themselves.
A host of artists have also featured on radio stations on various versions of GTA in the past, including one with Frank Ocean, Skepta, and Headie One.
The latest game, meanwhile, takes place on a private island and asks players to infiltrate what Rockstar calls “one of the most secure private islands in the world.”
It features heavily armed security guards and players will have the option of “neutralizing” these forces or stealthily escaping them.
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Dre’s new album is finished and it features a performance by Eminem.
Page Kennedy said he heard what would be the legendary artist’s fourth studio album, and the first since “Compton” in 2015.
