Dr. Dre is a bad boy too. He’s not in “Bad Boys 2” (rather, he has a cameo in the competing “Hollywood Homicide”), and he doesn’t have a song on Bad Boy Records soundtrack, but he’s involved in the film and its music. For the first time in his distinguished career, Dre is scoring a movie.
The producer behind some of Eminem and 50 Cent’s biggest hits is in his studio now, working on music for the Will Smith/ Martin Lawrence action comedy, according to his spokesperson. Neither Dre’s rep nor spokespeople for the film had any more information, including whether or not the score would be released as an album.
Featuring Nelly, Lenny Kravitz, Beyoncé Knowles and others, the soundtrack is due July 15, three days before the movie hits theaters.
Dre took a break from producing Ice Cube and Eve to score the movie. He’s also working on his third album, which he claims will be his last.
“Bad Boys 2” is said to be action-packed, but it also finds Smith smitten with his partner’s sister, played by Gabrielle Union.
