It’s been six years since Dr. Dre dropped his third studio album Compton. It’s been four years since Kendrick Lamar dropped his fourth studio album Damn. Are both performers close to dropping another album in the very near future?
According to Los Angeles-based producer/deejay BattleCat, his fellow LA natives could be planning to release new music in the coming months. Battlecat posted a schedule for the so-called “Aftermath Takeover.”
The purported lineup included information about Dr. Dre’s protégé, Snoop Dogg, releasing an album on November 12 followed by Dre letting loose new music in December. BattleCat also suggested Kendrick Lamar’s next LP is coming soon.
Apparently, Xzibit’s King Maker project is also on the way. A body of work by the rap supergroup known as Mt Westmore (Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, Ice Cube, E-40) is supposedly on deck as well.

If “The Aftermath Takeover” is real, the campaign will likely run through 2022. The final climatic conclusion could take place in February at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
Dr. Dre recently announced he will be headlining the halftime show for the NFL’s Super Bowl LVI. Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige will join the Aftermath Entertainment founder on stage.
