You Can Forget About Dr. Dre’s ‘Detox’ Album
Who said you can’t forget about Dre? The ever so ellusive, imaginary, holy grail, fairy tale Dr. Dre album, Detox, that’s been the punch line of every rap joke, was apparently scrapped years ago.
For over a decade now, ever since 2001, released in 1999, he’s been reportedly working on hip hop’s savior album. With reportedly over 150 tracks and half a million collaborators in the mix over the last decade, this was going to be the rap album of the century.
But now a former Aftermath Records producer Duwaun Parker has shed some light on the project, speaking to Jeff Weiss and MC Nocando on the Shots Fired podcast (after the jump).
“He scrapped Detox a couple years ago, and came up with another title,” says Parker. “I won’t say what the title is because I haven’t seen that online or anything yet. He was like, ‘I’m gonna call it this, and we’re gonna put it out this way and this way and this way.’ And he told a couple of people and we kinda knew that that’s just the thing we were working on… I’m under the impression that it’s still that one.”
But the question still remains… WHERE’S THE DAMN ALBUM? Of course… he doesn’t need the money, but you don’t think he wants to put every other legendary producer in the game to shame one more time?
Sidenote: he’s reportedly produced a ton of tracks for Kendrick Lamar’s new album, and as 4 Dipset joints in hiding.
