Rockstar Games is adding a new episode of single-player content to Grand Theft Auto Online, dubbed “The Contract,” next week.

The new chapter DLC will star rapper Dr. Dre alongside Grand Theft Auto 5 characters Franklin Clinton and Lamar Davis, who embark on an entirely new mission to track down files containing Dre’s unreleased music for the franchise.

The mission isn’t entirely fictional; Dre is actually gearing up to drop unreleased tracks on Grand Theft Auto, and the new episode requires players to retrieve a lost smartphone containing those songs.

Players will move “from the mean streets of Franklin’s old neighborhood to the hottest parties in the city, from debaucherous mansions to the offices of the FIB and everywhere in between as you join Franklin, expert hacker Imani, Chop the Dog, and crew to secure Dr. Dre’s precious tracks and return them to their rightful owner,” Rockstar wrote in an announcement on Wednesday.

The story will offer “an eclectic new radio station from some very special guest hosts, huge first-of-their-kind updates to existing radio stations including a ton of new and unreleased exclusive tracks from Dr. Dre and a heavy-hitting line-up of artists,” the gamer added.

Grand Theft Auto Online‘s next episode, The Contract, will release on December 15. Watch the trailer above.

Elsewhere, 100 Thieves raises $60 million USD in Series C funding.
