Events of Grand Theft Auto Online

The Cayo Perico Heist

Dr. Dre makes a cameo appearance during the Heist Prep: Gather Intel mission introductory cutscene with DJ Pooh and Jimmy Iovine. As the GTA Online Protagonist and English Dave are about to board the plane with Keinemusik, they pull up to the airport hangar in a Baller. They were supposed to join Juan Strickler's party in Cayo Perico and more of their entourage were supposed to follow in Dr. Dre's own car, but when they hear it was stolen at Iovine's house with Dre's phone full of important data including unreleased music, they cancel their trip. Pooh organized Scott Storch to take their place.

The Contract

Dr. Dre appears as the main character in the VIP Contract mission. He contacts F. Clinton and Partner to assist him in finding his lost phone that was stolen during The Cayo Perico Heist arc in 2020.

The first time Dre met both the GTA Online Protagonist and Franklin Clinton was at the Los Santos Golf Club in 2021, where DJ Pooh, Jimmy Iovine and Dre himself was playing golf. After Dre failed to hit hole-in-ones and with 2 other golfers complaining about not being able to play as Dre and his friends were using the holes for too long, the 2 other golfers threatened to use their connections to evict Dre and his friends out of the golf course. Enraged, Dre snapped his gold club and both the Online Protagonist and Franklin went after the two golfers in golf carts and ram them into submission.

Soon after, it was reported that on top of the phone that was stolen from Dre, 3 unreleased tracks in the phone was being demoed out by 3 different people. One has ties to the Los Santos Vagos, one had ties to the Los Santos Triads and one affluent billionaire who dabbles in cryptocurrencies thus Dre asked Franklin and the Online Protagonist to take it back for him. After taking all 3 down and taking back the music scores, Imani managed to triangulate that the last person who has Dre's phone was none other than Johnny Guns, executive and producer for WesLos Records who had beef with Dre since the 90s. Dre instantly told Franklin and the Online Protagonist that he has to take the phone back by all cost with whatever means necessary and he wants to end the beef once and for all by killing Johnny himself.

Soon after, Franklin told the GTA Online Protagonist that Dre had left his Champion back at the Agency and told the GTA Online Protagonist to drive it to Dre's studio, Record A Studios, to return it back to him. On route, Franklin received news from Imani that Johnny Guns had actually sent out a private militia to kill Dre at Record A Studios and the GTA Online Protagonist have to give Dre a helping hand by defending him and also wiping out all the men Johnny sent. After clearing out the men Johnny sent and ensure that Dre and his posse was fine, Dre thanked the Protagonist and even claimed that he trusts him and told the GTA Online Protagonist to stay and watch him produce a new song together with Anderson .Paak while Iovine and Pooh was celebrating in the background with the GTA Online Protagonist.

After helping Dre at Record A Studios, Imani pinpointed the final location on where Johnny would be and Franklin once again told the Online Protagonist to go and bring Johnny Guns back so Dre can question him himself. However, just as the GTA Online Protagonist reached Johnny's position just behind the Dashound Bus Center, Johnny fled in his car towards Los Santos International Airport and left the GTA Online Protagonist to fight his bodyguards. After clearing the guards out, the Online Protagonist then went towards LSIA and found his car parked behind a hangar and went into the hangar to look for Johnny. After taking out more of his guards and confronting Johnny, the GTA Online Protagonist carries a now injured Johnny Guns out to confront Dre himself. Dre voiced his displeasure for Guns in stealing his phone whereas Guns replied that it wasn't him as he admired Dre. Dre didn't trust what he said as he had actually threatened Dre by sending men to kill him and his posse. Guns then cursed at Dre but told him that he should have released his stuff that he makes instead of keeping it secret. Dre finally snapped and took a golf club from one of his vehicle and whacked Johnny Guns repeatedly.

Having vented his frustrations at Johnny, he asks the GTA Online Protagonist to drive him home. Just before they leave the airport, Dre told the GTA Online Protagonist that what Johnny did helped him open his mind that he has to release whatever that was leaked and on top of all the other demos that he had kept away to be released out and just before they left, Dre played one of his newest demos that wasn't leaked in the car and the GTA Online Protagonist drives Dre back to the Pacific Bluffs Country Club where Dre get into his helicopter and fly towards his yacht.

After finishing Dr. Dre's VIP contract, he will occasionally invite the GTA Online Protagonist to Record A studios to watch him produce new songs with his recording and mix engineer, Lola Romero.
