Dr. Dre Says "Under Pressure" In Two Weeks, "Detox" This Year

Jimmy Iovine & Dr. Dre's press-run continues, as Iovine speaks on Interscope's successful adaptation, and Dre makes promises.

In their latest press stop, Interscope Records President and Chairman Jimmy Iovine and longtime flagship star Dr. Dre stopped by CNBC yesterday, after a Fenway Park stop on Sunday. Iovine, an executive with a heavy-hand in the careers of Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre, Eminem and 50 Cent spoke about the adaptation going on in the music industry right now. "We're heading towards a real interactive stage in music, I believe. I think the entire deejay revolution taught us something: that people want to be part of the music and program the music themselves. They don't want to be told what to play, and most importantly, [told] what to play next."

Between his line of headphones with Dr. Dre and the success of Interscope artist Lady Gaga, Iovine believes his business formulas have changed with the times. "I believe that with streaming on-demand, some software that we're building over at Beats [By Dre] which teaches young people how to interact with music and make their own playlist, and [with] some of the things we're doing with the [cellular] phone companies, I think we have a great future in the record industry. I think seeing the [success] of Lady Gaga shows you that the audience is out there," said the Los Angeles-based mogul.

Despite sales declines in recent Rap artist projects from 50 Cent and Game, Jimmy Iovine said his company is thriving. "We're doing very well at Interscope," who (with subsidiaries A&M and Geffen Records) saw platinum 2009 releases from Lady Gaga, Eminem and The Black Eyes "It's no longer making one hit song and having 12 attached to it. You need complete albums, complete thoughts." Jimmy pointed to his Glam Pop sensation, "Lady Gaga is a great example of this." The man also compared Dr. Dre's mastery of music to Michael Jordan with basketball and George Lucas with film.

As a follow-up, Dr. Dre, who's been professionally working in music for almost 30 years, was asked if his formulas have been altered. "It's pretty much the same for me: I'm just putting my all into what I'm doing. [Making sure] that it's something I'm going to be proud of, and of course not embarrass myself or anybody that I'm working with," said the Compton Rap icon.

Lastly, less than 24 hours after revealing the name of his Jay-Z assisted single from Detox, Dr. Dre revealed a timetable for his fans. "Hopefully we'll be releasing ['Under Pressure'] in the next two weeks or so. I'm definitely gonna be puttin' [Detox] out this year. Finally. I think everybody's gonna be happy with it," said Dre of the album that's been nearly a decade in-the-making.

  • IDK

    Don't get me wrong, I want Dre to win. but the Relapse instrumentals were "meh". Plus, what does a 45 year old man have to rap about? I hope he doesn't pull a Lay-Z and rap about how iconic he is.

  • BRRRR

    how many rappers and musicians in general have been around 15, 20 years or more but in their later years have never even come close to the reaching level of quality from their old music that made them famous? (there's a fucking LOT) ... maybe dre did us all - or at least himself - a favor by not releasing 3 albums of WACK SHIT in the 00s the only people dre personally promised an album to is his label... which he owns. get off his nuts.

  • Uzee

    Friday aint over yet in the UK. "Under pressure" could drop through iTunes. Anytime soon, maybe http://drdre-detox.blogspot.com Message to Hip Hop DX - I would like to partner with this website and exchange our links.

    First, I do like this Put a look on my face like I smelt some piss Bounce to the beat till it start to hurt Then I dust off the smirf off me shirt Dip to the ground as I catch the bass Then I wipe all the sweat off me face Hop back up then I start to slide Poppin' my collar as I glide Then I break the thing down And do the bird Dust myself off like I just don't curr Come on everybody, now's the chance Fuck the Harlem shake This the thizzle dance

  • Docdre chopper

    its goin to rival queens night at the opera and guns n roses apetite for destruction. either that or it may be dres worst project to date. and if its his last album that would be pretty fuckin sad.

  • TAC DA DREAD

    I know all of y'all all on Dre's dick but if yall only knew the "process" and how Dre is a great "orchestrator/arranger" but not the end all and be all of producers! I know several people that have worked with/for Dre and they all say the same thing! He doesn't play instruments but has a very keen ear and knack for putting the pieces together. Something like a good GM from a Pro sports team. For example I remember being in the studio with Jazze Pha when 50 came out wit "In the club" I was goin crazy jockin' Dre all stoopid like he's the greatest ever. Jazze said with a sly grin, "oh yeah, watch this" He gets on his phone and calls his hombeboy "Mel Man" and asks him who really did the major work on Get Rich or Die Tryin, and dude said all sarcastically "you don't believe the album credits"!LOL Went on to say that on both Chronic2k1 and Get Rich or Die Tryin', it was Scott Storch & himself that did most of all the work, and Dre's name on with them for just slightly tweaking their work!LOL

    • brick city gutta nigga

      yeah well dre is the difference between a beat maker and a producer. there's a big difference between the 2. dre is a producer NOT a beat maker.

    • Come on!!!

      Yeah your right... Dr Dre is no good and has no idea how to produce a song... Man I can't believe you found this out... YOUR THE BEST and DR DRE IS TERRIBLE... btw what's the name of your album because forget detox I want to cop your album...

    • Anonym0us

      you know everyone. your awesome.

  • Chris O

    I hope he works with some serious lyricists like Soulja Boy Tell Em' or Wacka Flame on Detox... NWO 4 Lyfe

    • rhoded0gg

      LMFAO!!! thank you for this gem Chris.

    • Daniel Honn

      R U fuckin serious U cant even compare a legend like DRE 2 a faggot ass Soulja boy why U even throwin that in there homeboy. Soulja not on the same level. Soulja Boy is a faggoty punk lil kid swingin strikes while playing T-Ball. Dre is Above The MLB they R not even in the same league I cant believe U even brought punk ass Soulja Boy in this discussion R U serious obviously U dont know music homeboy. Get the fuck outta here. Go 2 your couch smoke your shitty ass dirt brown ass shwag weed. When U get ready 2 play with the big boyz roll a blunt of CHRONIC & turn on 2001 then tell me Dre is not an all around better producer & artist. I can't beleive U even brought Soulja Boy in 2 this discussion. Get the fuck outta here with that wack ass bullshit.

    • Docdre chopper

      naw, dr dre better put out 10 more albums just to reach soulja boys level before soulja boy takes dr dre seriously.

    • DjTike1

      LOL @ "serious lyricists like Soulja Boy Tell Em" that's too funny. thanks for that one, it really made my day

  • nyblackguys

    Wowwwwwwwwwww!!!Recently, I came across a hot dating and friends club. --**Black military friends .c 0 m**-- There are many sassy ladies and handsome military guys seeking fun, friendship, love ,marriage and even more!!!!! Maybe you wanna check out or tell your friends.

  • TGO12345

    Let's get this producer thing straight fellas, the G.O.A.T is JAMES "JAY DEE" YANCEY aka J DILLA! (And it's not just because he died.) Look at dude's body of work. Underground & Mainstream artists he worked with. Pete Rock, Kanye West, Pharrel Williams, all of them said they're favorite producer was Dilla. (It's documented, look it up!) From Pharcyde, to Common, to D'Angelo, Raphael Saadiq, A Tribe Called Quest, Slum Village, Erykah Badu, Blackstar, etc. (Dude produced for Michael Jackson!) Dre is great (Top 5), don't get me wrong, but nobody helped Dilla put his beats together. (Just throwing it out there.) Primo is a close 2nd. But all this shit about Detox is gonna change hip-hop, y'all cats need to get your head examined. Dre's last work, Dr. Pepper commercial? Oh yeah, platinum 3x over baby! Relaspe was totally produced by Dre right? (That got 5 mics too right? LMAO!) Y'all suckaz are silly! Get it together people!

    • the choconator

      5 mics? mics as in relating to the ratings given by the source? right right...no you're right, that is a very good point. can you smell the sarcasm from there? all im going to say is this: people who listen to some rap shit, whether it be a lot or a little, underground and or mainstream, whether it be old school and or new school, all of those people know who are what a dr.dre is. people from outside that scope i just mentioned know who or what a dr.dre is. unfortunately, the same thing cannot be said about j dilla. why you may ask? because even though my insignificant ass may have heard of him (and i have many times over), i had to wikipedia the guy just to get the basic rundown of what songs he has produced that i've heard. sure, notoriety can be misleading when evaluating greatness but you at least have to think that he is doing at least something right in order to have most of today's rappers wanting to work with him. or are they just as silly and in need of getting it together too?

    • HRCMS

      @ TGO, your right and much respect to you, indeed Dilla was the truth(RIP) but I think Dre gets that reconition because he's been doing it for 30 years, thats a long time in the ever changing music biz

    • bsmoov

      Premo is #1. Prem has too big a resume plus he's a producer and DJ. Dilla dog is a legend and unmatched no doubt but Prem is #1 Dilla a close second.

    • heroin hero

      Premo is #1 all time in my opinion

    Life is a struggle, that's why niggas I know stay on the juggle Some hustle to double, others hug you to mug you Poverty-stricken, they even turn a church kid into stickin It seems sickenin, but what?

  • nm504

    its about time but dre should put out some mixtapes before detox he has enough tracks to release a few more albums

  • css1323

    I hope Dre bring back the classic Chronic sound with a mixture of something beyond what was presented on the 2001 album. That '99 album still have some of the best production, imo.

  • 2pac Shakur

    Ima droppin my new album before this nigga Dre does. .

  • BXKIXKING

    There was a time when a rapper was blessed with either a Dre or Premo beat, it was going to be classic. With that said, this song in all likely hood will suck balls. Not production wise, but lyrically. Jay-Z thinks he is so far ahead of everything and everybody that he feels he doesn't have to go hard. You can't claim to be the Michael Jordan of rap and be lazy. Jordan would invent shit in his head just to go out and murder his opponent. Shawn Carter doesn't have that, he'll shoot a jumpshot instead of dunking on a dude. He scores the point but the message that i'm here to murder you does not resonate with his opponents, and people wonder why there are so many that think they deserve the crown. No one would dare say I'm the best player in the league with MJ at his peak, because if they still had to play the Bulls it was going to be a massacre. With that being said I think Jay will drop the ball because he feels that he can fart on the mic and its ok. He's gotten Lay-Z. Heres to hoping that he gets some inspiration. Lets hope he dives on the floor for the loose ball ala Jordan with the Wizards at the Garden vs. the Knicks. Don't fuck it up Jay.

    • bambam.

      @TAC DA DREAD what if I don't care if they are a CEO or a pop culture icon? what if I just care about the quality of the music they're makin? And I want yall fools to define "relevant" if it's about to be the next dumb catchphrase in rap cuz I don't think you're saying shit I'm a Jay fan btw. Even in 2010, he plays his role reppin hiphop on the gobal stage.. but I care a lot more about a quality album, something which he hasn't made recently...

    • TAC DA DREAD

      Yo, Jay Z is still the best MC in the game, bar none! His ability to change his topic matter and still remain relevant is something most rappers never accomplish! Please name any other rappers from the 90's that are still relevant like J is either as a CEO, Performer, or Pop culture icon?

    • D.D.410wutup

      I agree completely. And Jay is one of my favorite rappers

    • C-arson

      I agree, the only track I thought Jay spazzed out on, on the bp3 was "already home". Plus it so pop sounding that i don't think jay's built for a dre beat anymore.

    • OUI

      cosign most young hungry MCs still go IN if they're blessed with a Premo beat tho (ex. Termanology-watch how it go down) . I haven't been impressed by any Jay Z since Black Album. we'll see...

    Fuck Detox, too many bitch rappers made that album, not enough real ones. them headphones on the other hand look good, but i'll let em reach my budget. Dre has calmed too much before completing his last album, Where the bitches and the weed Dre?

    • __

      @MURDAFLS Dr. Dre is 45 year old man who lost his son to drug OD. you really expect him to sound to talk the same drugs & bitches shit? Not to be a downer but c'mon.. I don't wanna hear music from a grown ass man stuck in his 20s

    • dkayy

  • hazcam211

    Yo for real though the best time to release detox was in 2005. It would've been 6 years after Chronic 2001 and I'll tell you why it would've been hot. The late 70's and early 80's babies like myself would've loved it no matter but it's the kids who are now in the their early to mid 20's that were teens in 2005 that would've caused the sales of that shit to skyrocket to 7x platinum. In 2005 we saw the release of The Documentary, it had 5 or so Dre beats. Then The Massacre which sold a bucketload and had Dre beats and Dre mixing tracks. Of course on top of that you had Eminem's Encore so it would've been the perfect wave to ride and complete a home run after having Game, Em and 50 on base. I am positive that Aftermath would've been on fire then and dre could've then released Lamont, Eve, Rakim, Stat Quo and Ortiz and further that domination going into 06 and beyond. He's fucked up a massive opportunity to make an album to do Eminem Show type numbers and he's to blame. Because with Shady/Aftermath/G-Unit firing back then he could've had a guestlist of: busta rhymes, nas, game, 50, eminem, raekwon, snoop, nate dogg and the like. I think it'll still go platinum but honestly it's not going to break barriers because right after the time where he should've dropped it, shits fallen off from there He has his last chance around the time of Carter 3, Mariah Carey and Mary J Blige doing 600-1million in 1st week sales back in 08/09

  • Rick Jamez

    this mafuka dre has set the expectation for this album sooooooo high he better have like at least 20 joints on it exectutive produced by Jesus order for people to be satisfied with it

    • Jesus Christ 2010

      This is true Mr. James. He has lined up myself and Moses for production and Noah and Mohammad as guest features. Forgive him for the lateness, he was waiting for Noah to finish his ark and for me to resurrect myself after the easter weekend.

  • I'm at work and bored

    new single in 2 weeks? detox this year? hahaha, yeah right. I'm still waiting for my Dre + Cube heltah Skeltah albums. Bring back Bishop Lamont you west coast legend asshole.

    • Rick Jamez

      no he's def an asshole he fucked up wit Ortiz too and bishop lamont was hot too he's some sort or ass hole for that shit most definately

    • mjordanballa619

      dont fuckin call dre an asshole without him this is no hiphop

  • seanbane

    ok I'm feeling a bit misunderstood. I wasnt comparing Dre to those other producers.....thats blasphemy with some of those names mentioned. I was saying those are the relevant producers right now. Relevant doesnt mean good it just means current. Me? Fuck give me vintage Rza or Pete Rock or Preimo when he was with Gangstarr.....I'm a 81 baby so I love me some vintage break your neck shit. But I am also aware that Dre may have waited a bit too long to come out with an old sound that these young dudes wont understand. I will probably love the album as will anyone who loves Dre's beats. Not I implore u to find a 18yr old who can name 5 classic Dre beats....unless they are TRUE fans of hip hop you cant find them: period. Again I think Dre is a legend.....I just fear that he may have a hard road ahead of him winning over these new, youn, smart/dumb niggas is all. To put it simply: If your ass is a fan of Gucci Mane and ur wearing skinny jeans and wearing sunglasses at night you are not going to understand a Dr. Dre album. You do the math. Respect

    • Rick Jamez

      true shit. i cosign that one!! dre is the best but the younger generation not gone feel his style like that but the generation that does fuck with dre is still thriving right now and still very relavent 24 year old listen to rap still im quite sure.

  • DUBEM

    I see a lot of niggas hatin on Detox but it's gon be the best shit in years. unlike all these other bullshit albums that get borin and played out after 3 weeks

    • Rick Jamez

      I understand that but i doubt if anybody in the streets is gone be that thirsty for the shit. dre my fav but my generation aint thinkin bout detox they lookin for drake and gucci its not how i feel but its how the vast publicc is feeling us truuue hip hop fans make up just a small portion of that. so like i said no 808 kit and over worked drumm pattern then most likely not the response he's gonna be looking for. but im coppin the joint soon as it drops

    • Detox2011

      who gives a fukk about the radio!! and getting plays, that shit is gonna get plays whether the young folks like it or not, because theres more people in the street who will request that shit! for sure! so fukk outa here! and you hating ass bitches gonn hate on Dre and jay! but when it d rops, you'll be the first to show your little friends!!

    • Rick Jamez

      yea.... but is the younger generation gone fuck wit it? dre hasnt been very consistent lately I mean he has surpassed his era or music so there's no reason for him to be doin a whole lot right now but still he gotta pull out some shit thats bangin soooo hard. cuz if he aint do the whole album with an 808 kit and the same damn dirty south drum pattern thats being over worked he's gonna fail in record sales he gotta pull out another radio hit that wont leave the charts for 6months like another in da club.

    • mjordanballa619

      hell fuckin yea i agree detox is gonna be so crazy classic shit...and so it relapse 2

  • real shhhhhhhhhhhh

    no joke, dont expect detox to be like 2001 or the chornic, u gonna see all these new school mainstream rappers on this album and i bet u wont hear OG's like Cube, DPG, or any of them on the album, hiphop change for the worst, yall gonna hear drake, ludacris, and of course lil wanye on the album, all im sayin is this is not gonna be that westcoast gangsta shiitttt that people like me luv to bump.

    • mjordanballa619

      dog you dont know shit he got doc and snoop dogg on this shit man. AND game is on this shit. and ill bet my left fuckin nut that lil wayne aint on detox. i can promise that. and you know eminem is gonna be on it and that alone is all you need. let me tell you something man dre knows the how big this album is anticipated to be he aint gonna fuck it up. it might not be some west coast crazy shit but those days are over..now its all about the music and believe me no one is biggere about that then DR MOTHAFUCKIN DRE

    • kojo->

      Oh and Eminem.

    • kojo->

      who knows if what you say is true, but I been sayin I hope it's not a line up of whoever's hot at the moment when it drops. so far we got Jay Z and Nas (if that "Topless" leak was real) which is cool with me. Even Luda is cool with me. Those dudes are OGs in their respective regions and they can spit. But I really don't wanna hear Wayne or Drake and all that mess on a Dre record. I'm down for him to switch up the features, but I want him to put some thought into it. I like some of the new youngsters, but most of em don't belong on a Dre record. I think we can count on: Game Snoop Nas Jay

    • mcmastermind

      As much as I hate to say it i co-sign homeboy above me. Rap ain't shit anymore. I cant barely listen to anything new. I haven't turned on the radio is over 3 years.

    • mjordanballa619

      why do all you people on this shit dont know anything? before you started sayin some retarted shit thing homie. do you really think dre is gonna put out 4 year old songs? your fuckin dumb man that shit will come out when the nigga dies just like 2pac

    For those trying to compare Dre to Pharrell, Kanye, Rza, 9th, Just Blaze, Ron Browz, Swizz Beats, shit even Souljah Boy (how DARE you put Souljah Boys name in the hat with dudes that u listed :-O fuckisyoutalkingbout)…Them dudes ain’t even in Dre’s pay grade let alone the all around feel and what he brought to the game, let’s make that VERY CLEAR. I waited almost 10 years for Chronic 2001 and it delivered and it was a far different time in music from 1992 till 2000/2001, so don’t play that hoe card. Nobody said Dre was the “greatest rapper” just THE GREATEST PRODUCER EVER, no arguments. so what he had cats “co-producing” with him. Do ya’ll even know the difference between a producer, engineer and beat maker? Producers just fork out the doe for the project, having a “co-producer” means that there was somebody else that invested, just like wall street, you invested in good ideas and companies and it pays off later in life. Ya’ll wanna be fans of this game you better act like you know this hustle. This album will deliver 10 times over and once again change the face of Hip-Hop not only for his first time, but for about the 3rd time and that’s just his OWN albums. That don’t include, Snoop, Ice Cube, N.W.A., Eminem, 50 Cent and even EVE and so on. Plus those people he help put on, put on hot artists as well, so show respect where respect is due. I also read something about how Dre feel off…how’s that? He’s been producing for artists since Chronic 2001! Up to this day! And there BANGERS! So in the famous words of Ed Lover, C’MON SON! GETTHEFUCKOUTTAHEREWITHTHATSHIT! Detox changes the game and you can bet that! That’s My Word Science

      Your definition of producer actually applies to Executive Producer.

    • mjordanballa619

      dre is the best producer of all time. hes leaps and bounds beyond anyone out there and if you dont believe me listen to relapse

    • seanbane

      ok I'm feeling a bit misunderstood. I wasnt comparing Dre to those other producers.....thats blasphemy with some of those names mentioned. I was saying those are the relevant producers right now. Relevant doesnt mean good it just means current. Me? Fuck give me vintage Rza or Pete Rock or Preimo when he was with Gangstarr.....I'm a 81 baby so I love me some vintage break your neck shit. But I am also aware that Dre may have waited a bit too long to come out with an old sound that these young dudes wont understand. I will probably love the album as will anyone who loves Dre's beats. Not I implore u to find a 18yr old who can name 5 classic Dre beats....unless they are TRUE fans of hip hop you cant find them: period. Again I think Dre is a legend.....I just fear that he may have a hard road ahead of him winning over these new, youn, smart/dumb niggas is all. To put it simply: If your ass is a fan of Gucci Mane and ur wearing skinny jeans and wearing sunglasses at night you are not going to understand a Dr. Dre album. You do the math.

    • Science

      oh yeah and an engineer is one who builds the entire track, from recording to mastering and a beat maker is just that, a beat maker. DRE IS ALL OF THOSE IN ONE.

  • Michael Myers

    I WILL BE COPPING IT FO SHO.... THE REAL SHIT, NOT THAT BOOTLEG SHIT!!!

  • waterboi

    dis lady iz asking how the headphones relate 2 what dre does? how u think they relate, b!tc#???? Interscope is killing it off of Lady Gaga. That's about all they had last year. Now they're bringing Detox on the scene. They're trying to keep the momentum, keep the bank filled wit cash. It's all business.

    • mjordanballa619

      dont forget the top selling artist of the decade my dude....relapse 2 is gonna be some classic shit

    In the words of Star and Buc Wild..."Keep that Detox bull-ish to yourself...." Boooooooooooooooo!!

  • DUBEM

    Get ready for the best rap album in the last 10 years niggas. Detox !!!

  • seanbane

    Here's the thing: I love Dre dont get me wrong. I grew up on his beats and albums. But its 2010. Pharrell, Kanye, Rza, 9th, Just Blaze, Ron Browz, Swizz Beats, shit even Souljah Boy is producin now. I'm not saying that all the aforementioned are even close to Dre but in order for Dre to move me let alone the 17 to 25yrolds who actually buy albums he's gonna have to bring some next level shit. Its good to reminisce but its hard to go platinum these days. If he is doing it for the music then more power to him: we can use some good music this year for sure. He's making money off his headphones so I can't see how he'd be losing but outside of that? Like someone said below: u cant come with those piano/orchestra loops anymore and think "its west coast Dre shit so it'll sell"......niggas are different and Dre isnt relevant anymore. Premiere kept his shit fresh cause he never stopped movin. Dre did so...... I hope he wins but it will be a hard fought battle to say the least.

    • mAdD cRiTiC

      Dude you are right about the other producers but Dre has always and will always be the kind of producer that comes once in blue moon. The others are poppin now but they will be bowing down whendetox drops. Name one of the afromentioned producers who could get a bunch of rappers on the same album and make it a classic. Nobody! Brick city i can already tell you are on some fruity shit. You probably like camron and whack ass lil wayne and soulja boy and fucken justin beaver!!!! I bet you bought kevin federlines album!! you whack son!

    • MR BRICK CITY

      U RITE DA HOMIE AINT POPPIN LIKE HE USED TO..THEM PRODUCERS U MENTIONED ARE POPPIN RITE NOW..HE AINT RELEVANT ANYMORE..U'LL SEE

    • who who

      Doesnt he always bring next level shit. And you are comparing him to Souljah boy? Fuckin' Micheal Jackson always will be relevant, so would Dre. They are both legends. Come on son!

  • Slug-o, on the seventh floor

    hahahahaha! yeah right, come on dre; now way this albums is gonna come out, not this year not never. TGO12345, i'm with you homie; i waited forever for rae's cuban linx 2 and it delivered. but no where near as long as i've been waiting for this one. (by the way: wasn't raekwon on Aftermath for a while?hmmm).....but anyway, if it comes out, great. but i'm no longer anticipating this album....just too much hype

  • TGO12345

    TDUBWILCOX? The most anticipated album in rap history? What??? Change hip-hop forever? What??? I think dudes need to calm down when it comes to Dr. Dre. Cats be acting like he's the greatest emcee of all time or something. He doesn't write his lyrics, alot of his beats throughout time have been co-produced by other people. I'll give you the Deathrow days, he was serious, but what has he really done that warrants all this "anticipation" & "hype?" Aftermath as a is a joke. Em's Relaspe was a joke too. Come on with all this, "Oh my god, Detox, greatest LP of all-time stuff!" I waited years for Cuban Linx 2, but look at the kinda rhymes Raekwon had to write, and all the different producers he had to work with just for it to be in the same building as the first one. If cats think they're getting another Chronic or 2001, don't hold your breath.

    • alleyedoishiphop

      chuurch! i love dre to death but when u right you right....i want ths nigga to win, but at this point im tired of hearing it...dont talk about it dre if it aint gonna happen my nigga!!!

    • nah

      nah man, I think Dre's beats have stayed on point and Em's relapse was dope as fuck and a hell of a lot of ppl agree w/ me based on sales

    • dlp23602

      Speak on it...you're on point with yours!!

  • big braveheart

    Two weeks could be four but let's hope Detox is out for early summer and not next year or ten years from now! Come on Dre get it finished!!

    • mjordanballa619

      im pretty sure this shit is definintly coming out soon man. the LATEST i say is a year from now but i dont think thatll happen. dres doin big thing with the headphones (which btw are amazing i rock mine everyday) so hes tryin to keep it goin. im pretty sure relapse 2 and detox gonna drop close to each other either in september or november mark my words

  • K-VON

    Yesssssssssssssssssssss... he's back i bet it's going to be the hottest album of the year but damn 50 needs to step his game up and also game they should come back together with beats from dre going to be a killa team

  • Chris2010

    Sounds GREAT!! & i really hope that 2Pac is going to be featured in the "Detox" album

  • D.D.410wutup

    so.. The legend of detox is real..

  • booza

    Yeah, his headphones are popular with athletes cause athletes got the 350 dollars cash to buy 20 of them. jimmy iovine is a smart motherfucker and a good salesman, but hes fuckin boring. I like how dre said all hes doin right now is his album, instead of " well i just signed a dozen artists last week".

  • BK all day

    Dre hasn't been good in 15 years. His 4 bar repetitive loops are a little outdated

  • Orange Juice Simpson

    I see Dre is going for that "Tiger Woods" look...play on playa...play onnnn

  • chinedu

    U know what? I dnt blame dre 4 delaying detox,its all bcause of u guys ,most of u guys are born critics,no mata what dre does u guys dnt appreciate,if he releases d album u will talk trash ,if he doesnt u wil talk trash.I want him nt 2 put out d album,so u can hav notin 2 say of him and rather die of idleness..stil u cant achieve half of his in a double life time,.80% of hiphop internet users are pshyco, u guys put dre "under pressur"..4uck u

  • pommy213

    Believe it when I see it

  • shoegazi2

    All I Have to say is "Kingdom Come"...who the fck cares...

  • Assassin221

    Well we've heard this shit 100 times, but never from Dre himself so this is good news. But honestly, I think he might have dug his own grave by building anticipation for damn near a decade for one album because if it's anything less than the second coming of Jesus people will be disappointed....we'll see.

  • jaj

    this is exactly what the rap game needs. maybe after dre drops this then rappers will start making music for dudes again.

  • c/gaddix

    Dre will not flop and even if it is a commercial failure It's definitely gonna be a critically acclaimed one and that's all that matters in my book Late 2010 hopefully he will drop that classic sh*t

    • mjordanballa619

      im with you 100 percent. honestly i think hes gonna do what hes always done...take over the true hiphop fans AND the mainstream...aka be the illest dude in rap music ever and make millions

    • wolfman

      How the fuck COULD he flop? He has a mass following that spans decades, and includes artists (i.e. Eminem) that are the most respected in the genre for his project. So, I'm with you. It won't flop.

  • Best Rappers

    I dont like Dr.dre but I do like Dr.Dre. I dont like Dr.Dre cause hes a fake, but I do like Dr.Dre cause of his music.

  • tdubwilcocks

    Im so hyped, this album is closer than ever to being finished and released... Dre and Jimmy are going around promoting the album, something we havn't seen yet, and when the first single gets released you can bet that Dre will be releasing probably around September or maybe as close as the summer time, im just suprised the single is with Jay, i thought he would make the single with Jay his second single or something, I would have almost been positive that his first single would feature Snoop Dogg in a song called (Im Back (D.R.E)) or something, oh well i really hope its dope and i really hope it whips the rap game into shape again

  • evil brian

    At the end of the day this is a new error for Dre its gonna be a surprise good or bad,he been working for years, ain't really put anything out

    • Mr.850

      AHHH HE NAILED YO ASS!!!

    • wolfman

      Let's correct your grammar. At the end of the day, this is a new ERA for Dre. It's going to be a surprise; good or bad. He has been working for years, and hasn't really put anything out.

  • redrum987

    fuck yo couch...

  • HRCMS

    I think we can finally believe the shit is coming, Dre had hiss boss Jimmy there, so im sure Jimmy is going to have his ass under pressure to deliver as stated

  • crackface!

    by the way this better not be some some sample of the David Bowie/Queen "under pressure" but i trust Dre is better than that

  • Detox 2025

    I'll believe it when I hear it. But I will bang it when I hear it. So will all these fools who are so made they claim they won't... you all will!

  • wolfman

    Dre didn't seem to confident in what he was saying; especially when he was talking about his headphones. But, maybe he just lacks the ability to express the quality of his headphones. I could work with him on that...I would do that for Dre. Still, I'm not sold on Detox dropping this year. Dre has been too wishy-washy in the past. All that needs to happen is for someone to give Dre doubt about dropping it, and he'll put it on the back burner again. Like Jimmy Iovine was saying, they care a lot about image. And, they won't drop SHIT until the timing is perfect for their image. Even when Dre said, "we hope to put out the song in two weeks or so..." it sounded like he just made it up off the top of his head. Prove me wrong, Dre. Drop that shit!

  • ****TEXAS DRUG MONEY*****

    Damn come on Dre, we need this NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I see Jay-Z still kickin 50 Cent in his ass. HANDS DOWN JAY-Z IS THE KING OF RAP!!!!!!

    • tdubwilcocks

      well...except for Dre, guranteed, if you see Dre release the Detox this year it will change hip hop forever, this has to be the most anticipated album in hip hop history no doubt, Dre is crazy, you can bet that Detox will go down as one of the greatest of all time, i just hope he doesnt flop it but i doubt he will, Dre is a master at what he does

  • Ceazar

    now yall make sure ya cum out and save them kids thursday at whiskey river the detective will be buy all informants 12 beers so make sure u give ya keys 2 a drive and well make sure u catch a cab home, cuz as soon as they make it thru CIA school yall bitch gon get waterboarded and snatched by the CIA, and i got stars i can do ti 2 day, we take that charge never talk

  • Dab

    • jimmythefish

      yo Detox , I think you could be right.........................what a legacy!

    • Detox 2025

      lol what if Dre has just been taking this time to do like Pac did?? what if theres 10 albums that will be released periodically long after Dre's gone?

  • afsdafjklad

  • Ceazar
