pre-order physical / digital / merch bundles for Ventura

Ventura was recorded at the same time as Oxnard and again finds Dr. Dre acting as executive producer Like its predecessor, the new album was inspired by his early days growing up in Southern California:

“Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine. One town over I went further and found my depth. The duality of each place inspired me greatly and from that I made two albums at the exact same time but held one back because that would have been too many songs to perform live for you all! I like ending things on an even number so welcome to Ventura.”
