Members of Rockstar and close to Dr. Dre tell how the legendary producer and rapper has agreed to be integrated into the game.
During an interview for the American media Bet Music, Rob Nelson, Director of Development at Rockstar North, and DJ Pooh, Manufacturer and Rapper, but also Creative Consultant for GTA 5, told how Dr. Dr. had let himself be convinced to be integrated into the game.
Dr. Dre did not want to “do stuff for children”
DR. Dr. was at the heart of the contract extension The Contract of GTA Online. But the legendary producer was obviously not very inclined to be added to the game * at the start. The rapper, producer and creative consultant of the game Dj Pooh tells at Bet Music how Dre saw with a bad eye the idea of being added to a video game , especially since it ignored obviously GTA **.
Initially, he just said “no”, but it’s the normal answer you get from Dre. Dr. is not a gamer. He had just played any of the games. It’s not as if he hated them or something like that, it’s just that he did not play. He thought, “I do not do things for kids”.
Dr. Dre’s feeling has visibly changed when he saw the game , after Dj Pooh brought his playstation home. Realizing the wealth of gta , from the place of music in the game and in the history of the franchise, and realizing that it was a game for adult , DRE has been convinced. It also seems that the popularity of saga and its commercial success have leaned in the balance .
He was breathtaking. He did not know you could do all that. It was kind: “This shit is great”, while seeing me walk in Lowrider. He saw me change rims on the car, participate in a shooting, hang out with my friends.
How to integrate Dr. Dre at the game?
In real fan of the franchise and Rockstar games, Dj Pooh has initiated his friend to the joys of gaming and these games in particular. He compares the Rockstar publisher to the mythical music label Def Jam .
Rockstar reminds me of FEF JAM at the time. It was when you were taking a record at the store and bought it just because there was the Def Jam logo on it. You knew it would be anyway. You knew it was going to be cool. You knew you would not be disgusted. That’s how I saw rockstar games and their quality.
Once convinced, it was precisely Rockstar executives and developers to know what to do . An icon like Dre is for so many players, could not be an anecdotal addition , because it would surely have disappointed the players as not to see it in the game at all. Rob Nelson, Director of Development at Rockstar North, explains what it meant for the development team to have in GTA 5:
It must be fully integrated for that to make sense, and we wanted to make sure that his music had the impact she deserved. We wondered how to integrate DRE into this experience at all levels, and how to get there in a way that makes it credible and fun? So, we literally built the game around him, not just his music.
This is how the Content The Contract is born, and that we ended up with Dr. Having a prominent place in this part of GTA Online.
GTA 5 is available on PC, PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360.
