GTA Online has a fascinating new cameo in its newest heist.

GTA Online has now dropped one of, if not the biggest DLCs ever with its new Cayo Perico Heist. This new content brings players to a private island where they are trying to steal whatever they can from one of the biggest crimelords in the world.

The island resort, despite having a deeply shady business dealing attached, actually appears to be a pretty good time as parties with famous DJs and musical talent run around the clock. As crimelord hangouts go, it seems like one you could have a fun weekend at.

Well, it appears that is a setting ripe for a good cameo too. As pointed out by Twitter user @KieranAllman, Dr. Dre, playing himself, is seen getting ready to head to the island.

Adding some credibility to the scene, DJ POOH and Jimmy Iovine, two collaborators of Dre’s, also appear. However, in a longer clip, it turns out a phone with a lot of Dre’s unrecorded music has been stolen so he ends up not actually going with his crew to the island with you.

This is the latest in a long line of cameos in the franchise’s history. Ricky Gervais famously appeared as himself in a stand-up act in GTA 4. Phil Collins also played himself in the series before in GTA: Vice City Stories. Actors from Samuel L. Jackson, Ray Liotta, Ice T, Burt Reynolds, and more have had significant roles in the series.

GTA’s Cayo Perico Heist is out now.
