Game Says Dr. Dre Will

Game compares Dr. Dre's fabled "Detox" to Jesus, asking, "Will you ever get to see Jesus? It's like a hip-hop Jesus."

Dr. Dre has been taking his sweet time with his long-awaited and oft-delayed final solo album Detox, which has been in the works for over a decade. Game, who has worked with the West Coast veteran on the LP since the onset of his career, recently chopped it up with VIBE, discussing how fans may never end up hearing the project.

"Detox, it's like Jesus," he said. "Will you ever get to see Jesus? It's like a hip-hop Jesus."

Even after Dre released a few singles over the past couple of years, Game doesn't think that the rapper will ever release the album until he's truly satisfied with the final product.

"Dre's a hard guy to please," adds Game, also stating how his Beats by Dre company interferes with the album. "He's so critical... If he doesn't become 100 percent happy, then we'll probably never end up hearing Detox. I'll say never."

    Detox will be dropped when Dr. Dre dies. That's the truth, I mean, the album is done, but, right now, it won't sell too much, so they are going to do like they did with Pac. They will let the album to drop with Dre dead, for like his "Grand Finale", and will sell like water!

    The bible says Jesus will come back to fight in Armaggedon, so we'll propably gonna hear "Detox" when the world is going to end.

    Only way this album comes out is if Dr.Dre signs with YMCMB. I doubt he want to get outshined by Birdman, though.

    NEWS FLASH: Being a perfectionist is not a cause to be lingering on the same socalled perfectic album for over a decade. It sounds rediculous using words like "perfectionist", considering the actualamount of time taken, and the media attention this man gets. I honestly think the real hip hop heads have moved past albums like The Cronnic 2001 which went overtly commercial, and sucked out every inch of soul which Dr Dre had left within him

    fuck game, he's wack
  • d-nucks
    I think dre's own legacy has him shook...he is so afraid to tarnish his legacy that he will not put an album out that might fall short of expectations. Plus he is just not hungry anymore....he got dumbass poeple payin 200 dollars for some damn head phones....SMH

      I agree. But he also may not be giving himself enough credit for what he's contributed, aside from headphones.
  • Mcfly
    Ya know...Dre changed the game not once but twice! really...there is really no ground left to conquer! there is a lot of producers out there that are good in their own, you can probably name a few. I'm just saying Dre should drop some classic shit we all know and love, just to so we can have that shit. As long as it ain't as lazy as Dead People by game.
  • TruthHurts
    what's up with rappers rocking the big frame nerd glasses nowadays? nothing wrong with glasses, but damn, when did it become a 'gangsta' fashion trend to be seen with them on? smh fashionistas should be women, not men
    • Fact
      What's wrong with the glasses? And it's not like all these rappers are gangsters anymore. Do they live in the hood? No! Do they still sell crack and go around with gangs and guns? No! Game is not really a gangster anymore, same with all these other rappers. They think they are, but they're not. If Game was a gangster he would still be living in Compton and selling crack with the bloods.
    • TruthHurts
      To wear an accessory solely for the sake of making a statement or following a trend, in my view, is super weak. It's Kanye Style. I don't care if anyone is still selling crack or whatnot, the issue to me is the fact of matter that they say they have a certain upbringing and attitude, and that gets turned on its head when they start following mass media trends and throw on the horn-rimmed glasses for the hell of it
    • Fact
      I understand what you're trying to say. But I feel that when all these rappers are growing up in the hood, they force themselves to dress in a certain way to fit in with everyone else around them. And then once they move out of the hood and starting earning good money, they can now dress how they want and buy the newest fashion trends. I also feel that once they move out of the hood their attitude changes. It's like for me once I moved away from where I am from and met new people my attitude towards them changed.

Rep the REAL WEST, WC, Cube, Quik, Eiht, T, Daz, soopafly.
  • GOATmaybe
    You know, I feel that probably a big reason Dre won't release it is because no matter what he's done Detox is going to suck. No matter what he does, He could have the tightest production getting verses written by the greatest lyricists and have amazing songs but at this point none of that matters. The wait and the hype around Detox has made expectations so high that there flat out cannot exist an album good enough to meet them.

    If people are still expecting Detox to drop than you are just plain crazy. That album will never see the light of day.
