THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM, PART 9,504

Hip hop innovator, producer extraordinaire, label impresario and tech entrepreneur Dr. Dre graces the cover of our latest print edition. Dre’s mark is everywhere on pop culture, and with the surprise drop of his star-studded Aftermath/Interscope smash Compton: A Soundtrack via Apple Music, he simultaneously looks back on his N.W.A history and forward to all manner of fresh sounds. But appearing on the cover of this rag might make him want to call the police.

UMG Nashville ruler Mike Dungan is on his way to a big #1 sales bow with Capitol Nashville's Luke Bryan, whose Kill the Lights is poised to sell more than 300k—and thus become the first country debut to hit that benchmark since a feller named Luke Bryan did it in 2013. Dungan and team are naturally stoked about Bryan and their rest of their superstar roster, though this HITS Contents shout-out probably makes them want to dim the Lights and pretend they're not home.
