Dr. Dre’s forthcoming third solo studio album Detox has been in the making for a decade. The Aftermath/Interscope Records release has reportedly included numerous personnel from earlier parts of Dr. Dre’s career, including Sir Jinx, DJ Quik, The D.O.C. and others. Another name can be added to this growing list. Today, a press statement from emcee/producer Soopafly confirmed that the Long Beach, California veteran is also contributing to Detox sessions.
“I’m in studio working with Dr. Dre again. Making sure this Detox sound got my imprint on it too. You won’t be disappointed,” said Soopafly in a press statement.
A onetime member of Tha Dogg Pound, Soopafly began his career playing keyboards for Death Row Records hits such as “Natural Born Killaz” by Dre and Ice Cube. Burgeoning into emcee and producer, Soopafly stayed at the label that Dre co-founded to the early ’00s, after his solo debut, Like It Or Not was shelved indefinitely. On August 30, Soopafly will release his third solo album, Best Kept Secret, on his own Fly2K Records imprint.
