In Honor of His New Album, We Animated Dr. Dre’s Iconic Album Covers

It’s been 16 years since Dr. Dre dropped an album. (We remember 2001 so well; it’s a fixture on our playlists.) His new release, COMPTON, is his latest venture, cleverly timed to promote the release of Straight Outta Compton, the N.W.A. biopic in theaters next week. In honor of the exciting return of Dre, we decided to mess around with a little rotoscope action. Here are a few classic Dr. Dre and N.W.A covers, created by Column Five’s in-house DJ and video editor Gerson Hernandez. Make sure your speakers are on.
