Dr. Dre's "Detox" To Release On July 26th?

Though release dates have been given before, another rumored date purports that the album will drop in the summer.

Dr. Dre has delayed his third and final solo album Detox for the past decade, giving several release dates during that time. Another alleged release date has hit the Internet, suggesting that the West Coast veteran will drop his swan song on July 26th.

According to HHNM, HMV has made the album available for pre-order in the U.K. on July 25th. The date, which falls on a Monday, would suggest that the LP would release in the States the following day, as albums release in the U.K. a day earlier.

    this about Dr. Dre's "Detox" To Release On July 26th? is real ?

  • ANON

    Why are haters saying that the two singles flopped? The only thing that flopped is your d**** when you tried to get it up - don't hate :) "I Need a Doctor"; Belgium - No. 3 Canadian Hot 100 - No. 8 UK Singles Chart - No. 8 UK R&B - No. 3 US Billboard - No. 4 And that flopped? XD I admit "Kush" wasn't as successful as "I Need a Doctor" but; US Billboard Rap - No.11? Also "Kush" is getting heavy radio-play over in London!! You obviously came here to hate. Dr. Dre is doing well. Check yourselves. :)

      kush and i need a doctor were both hella whack. reguardless of radio play. im not hatin im just being straight up!

  • Mark Odonohoe

    hope detox comes 26/7/2011. as cant wait? as all the best dr.dre, marky, from dublin,ireland.

  • Ace

    Imma agree with @nathan to be real with you stop hating on Dre and his album and the record ain't even out yet... nobody asked your asses to wait for it, its ur choice (dre didn't put an effing gun to ur head to wait for Detox) when Detox is out then u listen and judge aiight???!!! you hatin on it and you don't even know whats on it or who's on it except for a couple of tracks. If u don't wanna wait then don't but stop annoying the living fuck outta Dre and others waitin for Detox to drop just move on and stop talking about it......

  • nick

    It's not coming in July without any single or marketing hype. There has never been a confirmed date for Detox and this one is no different. What's the source on this? Nothing. Who out here actually believes Detox is dropping in less than two months without any big single? Neither Kush or INAD did that well but then again both were leaks that got finished and pushed out. Dre already blew it a long time ago with Detox when he fumbled the concept and his original focus on what it was supposed to be. Detox will turn heads if and may have some dope records on it when it drops but I don't care what bullshit anyone tells me - no album is worth waiting this long. Dre has finished and scrapped this Detox thing so many times over the years that it's embarrassing and plain old now. Being a Dre fan these days is an endless journey of manic excuse-making for him and he obviously doesn't have the right people by his side like he used to. Elizondo, D.O.C., Bishop Lamont got traded for Slim da Mobster and Swizz. It isn't going to work this time when you ruin the entire formula of what made your first two albums classics. It's going to flop all expectations and even if Dre knows this full well, Dre and Iovine also know this album is really about selling Beats headphones where the real money is, and he'll be laughing all the way to the bank not giving two shits whether people like the album or not. Believe it.

    dre you are an idiot! All your fans a 30 or 40 years old and have knowledge about good hiphop music and you shitting on them with your boring ass songs. Kush sounded as a weak left over from the 2001 album. I need a doctor is so horrible with this angry whiteboy whos only screaming now.

      i feel you on that, , ,he should not bother with the release of it. . .the frim is not the flop. . .detox is. . .because i need a doctor is horrible and kush is garbage, im tried of these youngins think this is the standard of supreme hip hop

  • Nico 3

    People aren't supporting the effort of these rappers anymore by going to the store and buying physical copies of albums. While there's nothing wrong with selling a shitload of singles on Itunes, it sort of defeats the purpose of trying to create a masterpiece. I think Dre's in that place right now.

  • Frankie

    I know exactly when this cd is coming out, Never O'clock

  • mgruppe.com

    DONT BE MAD AT DRE. HE IS A IRRELEVANT ARTIST TRYING TO GET BACK INTO A FUCKED UP INDUSTRY. HE DROPPED "KUSH" AND "I NEED A DOCTOR" TO SEE HOW SHIT SELLS - JUST TO ADJUST THE ALBUM BEFORE RELEASING - MAKING SURE THE SHIT SELLS. ALL THE HYPE WILL PAY OFF FOR HIM, BUT NOT FOR FANS WHO LOVE HIS CLASSIC SHIT. NEVER CHANGE A WINNING TEAM? HE DID. AND NOW HE´S A FUCKING BUM TRYING A COMEBACK. I MIGHT BUY THE ALBUM TO HAVE IT IN MY COLLECTION BUT NOT TO CELEBRATE HIP-HOP AND THE RETURN OF DRE. EVEN CUBE FUCKED UP BAD WITH HIS "REP THAT WEST"-SHIT. THESE IDIOTS SHOULD HAVE STUCK TO THE ORIGINAL FORMULA. DRE WAS SCARED OF DETOXING HIS CHRONICED-OUT EXTACY-SWALLOWING STEROID-ASS AND GOING IN TO THE FUTURE. NOW HE CAN TRY CONVINCING SOME TEENAGERS - HE CHOSE SO.

    • Sleeptox

      @ mgruppe.com What do you mean with never change a winning team? Should Dre work with Warren G, Snoop, Cube, Daz, Kurupt and xzibit. These are all rappers who didn't make a decent album for years. there's nothing wrong with changing a winning team sometimes the magic of a winning team is gone. Like dre did in the past he should work with new talented artist who are fresh and hungry and not a boring commercial rapper like snoop. Also i doubted if Scott storch or mel man can save his album. When did hear a decent beat from scott "snorting cocaine" storch? That was in 1999! where's is he now

    • tresdemayo

      Real Talk, Dre turned his back to his real fans, which is a stupid move cuz people who loved The Chronic and 2001 are in there 30's and 40's and would have actually bought the record. Now he's after youngstaz with small pocket money who might buy a single on iTunes but don't care about full length albums anymore (look at Katy Perry's album sales). How can you build a brand name for 30 years and then fuck it up in a couple of months ?

  • nathan

    no disrespect to anyone on here, but people really need to realize that it takes him years to finish an album in general. 2001 took him 7-8 years...Detox was only announced in like 2003-2004 officially. the time frame is essentially the same here, yeah the tracks released so far are pretty well garbage BUT dre himself said eh didnt want kush released but the label wanted to push it so whats he gonna do? INAD was good when it first came out, however, it leaked also, again not something dre wanted but eventually was pushed to promote, the only thing that is something dre-produced is Die Hard and honestly that sounded more like a promo for detox and a big apology for making us wait and apologizing for his own perfectionist ways...i personally think it will come out in July, for one reason alone, Game said he would only release his RED album when Detox drops..the dates match up, July 26 for detox and August 23 for RED..just my opinion on it all

    • Ace

      Dre is not asking any of you for anything and doesn't need excuses, he just gives em out for the fans sake. Plus Dre doesn't have to make this album, he chose to cause he wants to finish it for the fans, u not interested leave it be no need to ruin it for any/everybody else

    • tresdemayo

      2001 was actually released in 1999, and the recording actually took 2 years, not 7 or 8. I fucks with Dre, like any hip hop head, but don't waste time on finding him excuses. The game has changed and this time Dre doesn't seem able to reinvent himself. Each new leak of Detox is digging his artistic grave (especially that I need a doctor gay ass video)

  • CLM83

    I'll still buy it, but I agree with the guy below me, "Kush" & INAD are not nearly as good a singles as "nuthin' but a G thang" & "Still Dre" so I have no clue how this album is gon' be. But if the production is anything like "So Bad" and "My Mom" with the horns and shit it'll be Classic. Drop it DRE!

  • Anonymous

    Let's be honest, if this finally gets to stores. People will STILL buy it and it will be a number 1 album. Don't act like you won't. It won't do numbers like his last two, but no one does numbers like that anymore.

  • Anonymous

    The game has changed so dratically in a few years i can't see a chance for the good Dr to do big numbers. The only thing i think could save this project, is to collaborate with some big dogs and surprise the fans. So many lolly pop rappers, and watered down mcs, you need to come with a strategy and should of done years ago off the strengh of who you are. It's obvious your trying way too hard to make it!

    NOW DAYS EVERYBODY WANNA TALK LIKE THEY GOT SOMETHING TO SAY, BUT NOTHING COMES OUT WHEN THEY MOVE THERE LIPS JUST A BUNCH OF JIBBERISH AND MOTHERFUCKERS ACT LIKE THEY FORGOT ABOUT DRE. fuck the haters, youll all be on dre's dick when this shit drops

    "Though release dates have been given before, another rumored date purports that the album will drop in the summer." Ummm, NO. A release date has NEVER been given! RUMORS with NO source have surfaced - this sir has a source...FOH

  • jj barea

    My bet is that it will be like Chinese Democracy by Axl Rose...a solid album in its genre, but hardly worth 10yrs of waiting...sonically it will be amazing, the songs will be good, but not out of this world...hes got nuthing on Kanye, his creativity is shot, and at this point in time delaying it even more is just making him lose credibility...its never gonna be as good as he wants it to be,MJ could never top Thriller no matter how hard he tried,Dre wont beat 2001 or the chronic,but his best overall production by far was doggystyle... maybe he shoulda holler'd at Quincy for some advice,lol...just man up, put it out and cut yr losses Andre...thing is, if he dropped this years ago and it was just okay, he coulda followed it up with another 3or4 albums, and everybody would be happy...hes dug himself a huge hole and the first two singles were good songs, but not great. Id like to be wrong though, hope its a classic, but i really think hes fucked this oneup for himself

    • Anonymous

      Doggystyle was done by Daz but Dre just toke the credit. Why didn't Daz do a song with Dre after the chronic and doggystyle????? they never worked togehter

    • Sam Wartenbee

      Agreed. Doggystyle was the best and it didn't take 10 years to make. I'm over this record and it's not even out yet.

  • Evan Nielson

    This is NOT happening. The buzz from Kush and INAD is already gone. Dre will not drop this album until it has a smash hit single. Guaranteed. It's hard seeing a single creating enough buzz between now and the end of July to create enough hype for the release. It's got to get out to all the clubs, a music video has to drop, radio stations have to play the shit out of it. The time frame just doesn't work. People are already bored and tired of all the bullshit. I say he needs to release three singles at once like a shotgun approach. Whatever hits true, go with it. Fuck it... At this point it doesn't fucking matter. Dre has already pissed off 3/4 of his fanbase to the point of them really not giving a shit about Detox (myself included). DJ Quik's "The Book of David" was my Detox lol. Detox has been the biggest farce in hip-hop history.

    • Anonymous

      @pat INAD betta than Still D.R.E.?? it just charted higher coz of pop fans wanting to buy an eminem single. Next Episode, Forgot About Dre, Dre Day all were betta dan INAD. Hell even Kush was betta

      I Need A Doctor was a better single than both of the songs you mentioned. The only song he made that was higher was Nuthin But a G' Thang. Get your facts straight retard

    • Evan Nielson

      Not a smash single on the level of Still Dre or Forgot About Dre... There wasn't a single rap fan that wasn't bumping that shit back in the day. The same certainly can't be said for INAD.

      I Need a Doctor was a smash single. It went to like number 4 or something. And we still haven't got the album yet.

    • David Aq King

      Hey?? Is that my homeboy chet? I hope it works out for Dre too but that Eminem has gotten to him. Dre is a producer from NWA, he has never been one to cry anything other than gangster on a track.. evrytime he tries to sway away from gangster music and become emotional...he flops. He needs to get the game, snoop, 50, yayo, scott storch, xhibit, mel man etc and start all over....n don't listen to eminem or get influenced by him...Dre never makes a depressing track until now.... I guess he may be too old for an f the world attitude but hey......this should have been decided before he announced the launch of detox or it was probably Eminem who announced it for him and drew upon all the worldwide pressure and now Dre is getting dissed. May it all work out for you Dre, you'll always be the best.

    Just hypothetically speaking: Shouldn't any muthafucka in the rap game whatsoever be able to create a classic album if they spend over 10 years on it? Seriously, Waka Flocka, Soulja Boy, or any other nigga that we feel is not capable of coming with a classic album...if those niggas take over ten years on 1 album, shouldn't even they be able to make a classic? Especially if they are using other niggas to write it?

  • James

    At this point Dr.Dre is nothing but a name brand for stereo headphones. Dude needs to shut the fuck up about his detox and continue making overpriced headphones. His music isn't that great to begin with and he's nothing of his former self. He's turned into one of those shady industry cats that Q-Tip was talking about. Fuck Dr.Dre
