If you want to listen to Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre before it arrives officially on Friday, Apple Music has got your back.

Apple's streaming service will offer an "exclusive" stream of Dr. Dre's new album starting Thursday at 9 PM ET and running to 12 AM ET when the great hip hop producers last album is  officially released.

According to engadget, Compton was inspired by Dre's work on the N.W.A. film Straight Outta Compton that hits theaters August 14th. When it arrives on August 7th, the album will be an iTunes/Apple Music exclusive, making it one of the first high-profile releases for Tim Cook & Co.

Naturally, since Dr. Dre officially works for Apple now, having a show on Beats1 and all, it's no surprise that his new project would only be available through the service.

For the fans who are still waiting on Detox, it won't be released. During an episode of his Beats1 show "The Pharmacy" last week, Dr. Dre said ditched that album entirely after releasing two singles because "it wasn't good."
