Dr. Dre's Record Collection

When Straight Outta Compton hit theaters last fall, my e-BFF Matt (somewhat) jokingly suggested that he couldn't wait for me to write a blog post detailing all of the records in Dr. Dre's collection.


A few days later, I saw the movie myself and knew I'd be writing this post as soon as I got my hands on my own copy of the film.

Straight Outta Compton hit stores on Tuesday...so here we go.
