This page is a walkthrough for The Contract DLC Mission, Studio Time in the Contract DLC. It’ll navigate you through the necessary steps to clear out the gunman in Record A Studios.

Dre works on some new music.

You did good plugging them leaks but it ain’t over yet, partner. We got the copies, but Dr. Dre’s phone is still out there being played by who knows who. While we crack this, you better go see the man himself.

Once you’ve completed The Nightlife Leak, The High Society and The South Central Leak, return to your Agency and a scene with Dre will playout. Here you’ll discover that Johnny Guns has the phone of Dre’s unreleased music. After the scene has come to a close, wait a while and Franklin will call you with the request to get Dre’s Car back, so return to the Agency and go to Franklin’s office to begin.
