Has Dr. Dre Changed His Mind About Releasing ‘Detox’...?
During a recent visit to the Golden State Warriors practice site, Dr. Dre gave a significant update regarding the mythical Detox album.
Dr. Dre and Detox have been connected to one another since 2002 with mildling results. Famously, the good doctor and legendary producer said during an episode of HBO’s The Defiant Ones that he would never put out the album, instead focusing his effort on the then-N.W.A.-fueled soundtrack, Compton.
That might have changed though.
During a visit to the Golden State Warriors, Dr. Dre, accompanied by his business partner Jimmy Iovine, were spotted by ESPN’s Chris Haynes. The sports writer reported asked Dre if Detox would ever see the light of day, of which Dre responded by saying, “I’m working on a couple of songs right now. We’ll see.”
That’s a far cry from saying that he’s “never had any connection” with Detox, so it could mean great things for 2018 to possibly receive another album from the iconic creative. There have been numerous leaks from the project over the last decade it has been in the works, but we still hold out hope that the actual-factual full-length edition will come out and satiate the masses.
