Dr. Dre initially turned down GTA Online because ‘I don’t make things for kids’

Late last year GTA Online added The Contract, a bunch of new story content bringing back one of the main GTA 5 protagonists Franklin and debuting new music from the legendary rapper and producer Dr. Dre. This followed a brief Dre cameo in 2021’s Cayo Perico update, but according to a new interview with DJ Pooh the whole shebang barely happened: because Dre said “I don’t make things for kids.”

A recent show on the UK’s Channel 5 (which has now sadly disappeared from its on-demand service) called The Oral History of How Dr. Dre joined ‘Grand Theft Auto The Contract’ features DJ Pooh explaining further (thanks, Kotaku).
