Dr. Dre's First Single To Feature Snoop Dogg, Akon?

The first single from "Detox" may be ready, according to various sources.

Detox may finally see the light of day, as it seems that Dr. Dre has finally chosen the first single for his long-awaited project.

Youheardthatnew.com reports that music video director Joseph Kahn (@JosephKahn) has revealed via Twitter that he is gearing up to film a music video for the legendary rapper/producer.

Further insight was provided by L.A.-based entertainment agent Twyla Johnson (@entertainmentag) that the song is called "Kush," and features Snoop Dogg and Akon.

While the recording history between Snoop and Dre is well-documented, fans may not realize that this trio has recorded together before. "Boss' Life," from Snoop Dogg's 2006 release Blue Carpet Treatment, featured a hook from Akon, and production by Dre.

    yo real shit...dre has put himself in a position where as long as detox does actually drop...mad mother fuckers are gonna go get it obviously...so yea the detox talk is annoying but the reason everyone gets all hyped about the shit is cuz they know there gonna go get it...real shit

  • D!z

    Yeah right..... HFM2 GET THAT!! NOW YOU CAN GET MAD ALL YOU WANT, I'M NOT GONNA CHECK THE REPLY FAGGOTS!

  • Blair Necas

    As far as i'm concerned the west coast has left dr. dre behind. sure, when detox drops i'll prolly cop it, but i think everyone is sick of hearing about this album. dude is obviously still a monster in the mainstream but for me the west coast is more about fresh rappers like blu + co$$. These guys may never get mainstream shine but who knows. They're a couple of the 2 best rappers in the game. #my 2 cents.

  • kennyken

    All ya'll who keep saying detox will never come out r hella funny. who gives a fuckin shit if it does or doesn't, life goes on, I'm from Cali, if it does come out I'm sure it'll be a god album, ya'll just read way to much into this shit.

  • DeFo

    i hate to say it but Kanye might just be a better producer than Dre

    • nunya

      That's the most retarded shit I ever heard. How can someone with almost 10 years of production be better than someone with over 20? Plus, we are talking about Dr. Dre. Guess it depends on taste...if you like sped up samples, I guess. Kanye should produce better vocals of himself singing. He sux ass at singing...dunno how that shit gets on radio.

    Not very creative, how about something real and non comercial for a change. Something different!

  • Sean Felder

    Can't wait for that Detox Album to drop.Dr Dre is a legand man,got the Chroinc album back in 1992.He's a master in crteating beats and production is sick.Check out his album Still Dre 2001

  • kennyken

    i knew that boss' life was produced by dre, just from listening to the beat. i already know detox is gonna make people happy. dre is the man on the boards man, and this album shall prove it to the nonbelievers.

  • Anonymous

  • Southside Balla 31

    I mean these new rappers, Dre's album gotta be THE ALBUM, not just another, ya kno'

  • Southside Balla 31

    Dre and Snoop always did good stuff togetha, but this album is taking too long to be released, damn ! Dre is the best producer, I just don't understand why is it taking so much time ! Hope that when it's done, it's the Gangsta's runnin' again, not them young new fools !

  • Insaney

  • bringi

    yo i got more anticipation for lloyd banks hfm2 than this! dont get me wrong dre is a legend but every year they say this! and banks been spitting hard as hell. HFM2 nov 22

    • Purp

      Dre found em, em found 50 cent, 50 cent was in G-Unit with Lloyd Banks so by the distributive property Dre is better than Lloyd Banks By this same property Detox will rape hfm2....

    • Anonymous

      i would much prefer banks over dre.. i mean banks is a real artist he writes his own shit and is a real mc! i like dre but its well known he dont write his raps and even production aint always him but he credits it.. HFM2>detox

    • Billy

      Seriously...lloyd banks over dre.. you are a retard.

  • H4ZE

    "Detox may finally see the light of day"... i cant even count how many times have i heard that line in the past 4yrs! shm

  • rainer23

    surprised that nobody said a bad word for Akon.. i was expectin Nate ,but Dre knows how the shit done,thats gonn be interesting..

    • billy

      Nate Dogg had 2 strokes and cant even speak right now...unless dre pulls something out of the vault of scraps he has we might not here Nate Dogg...and I wouldnt mind that at all...nor would it suprise me

  • The MG

    I did it again, commenting without reading the article...

  • The MG

    Is it called Under More Pressure?

  • westsidewarlord

    maybe this will bring the real snoop back since all the shit hes been droppin has been complete garbage, and since nate dogg's out of commision i guess they had no choice but to grab akon, thinkin maybe kobe woulda been better for the westcoast sound or k young but w/e if its the doc you know its gunna be a banger

  • Damn SMH

    this is whack....snoop dogg is garbage...it's going to be a corny song....snoop dogg is NOT saving hip hop

    • DAMN SMH

      I'm hoping so...Snoop was good on Chronic 2001 but that's because other dope artists were on the song too...I would much rather Detox be filled with better emcees but I guess he needs to keep it west coast...let's just hope Eminem and Crooked I get a lot of time on this album

    • billy

      Snoop doesnt sounds appealing to most of us because he doesnt rap "hardcore gangsta" anymore.. remeber snoop with no limit.. suckd...The game is to be...etc..(1998) when he supposively was dead in rap.... put snoop witht the right people "Chronic 2001" (1999) who do good rap music and he will sound fine... never call garbage on dre and snoop callobo...

    • sharpsh00ter155

      still DRE was good

    • bostongeorge6512@yahoo.com

      Yea your right man Whens the last time snoop and dre made a decent song?

  • lashawn

    hopefully it will be a good one and shut da fuck with all that trash talk and be thankful to have hiphop.

  • Love_Cali

    If Nate would have been fine he would propably be on the song. Dr. Dre, Snoop & Nate damn it would be so good

  • Tom

    I'm not gonna believe it until it's in my hands and I'm listening to it going "this took nearly a decade?!"

  • kelso13

    • Anonymous

      what the hell is up with all these people talkin' about "Lloyd Banks blah blah blah.. support real hiphop!." are you fuckin' kidding me?! Lloyd Banks is REAL hiphop?. you have no IDEA what the fuck hiphop is if you think Banks is hiphop.. he's a rapper.. a "gangster" rapper if you will.. a wanna be fabolous.. nothing about him is hiphop.. you want hiphop?. listen to Ef@amm, you know?. tonedeff, packfm, all those cats.. listen to Reks, listen to Atmosphere and Living Legends, listen to Blu, listen to Grieves, listen to J. Cole, Wale, Wax, Fashawn, Sapient and the rest of the Sandpeople, now THEY are hiphop.. Lloyd Banks?. NOT, i repeat, NOT hiphop..

  • Alex Avram-Rusu

    lets hope its not another Under Pressure...

    • billy

      Sir Jinx said he has listened to Detox and it is not going to sounds techno ish under pressure.. he said songs on it go more along the short clip of the beat we heard on the dr. pepper commercial.. that beat sounds dope as hell and so dre...

  • J-hunt da Prodigy

    Kush? Why Kush?...Name aside, this better be West Coast, and it better be dope, or I'm pretty much done with Post-2001 Dre

  • A Real Nigga

    I'm Happy To See That The Good Doc is about to drop and save hip-hop from all this gay shit going on. When DETOX drops, all these wack ass niggas won't exist.You Have Been Warned....

  • ye

  • Jugo
