Soopafly Confirms Working On Dr. Dre's "Detox"

The onetime Dogg Pound member and keyboardist for "Natural Born Killaz" adds on the growing list of new and familiar contributors.

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.

    I just paid $23,98 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $37,59 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $677 which only cost me $72,13 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from,

  • Westcoast G

    I took a shit while Dre worked on that news? Keep it CRIPPIN

  • Pffff

    Detox better be 1000 songs long, because everybody's claiming working on it. I used to wait for this album, now it's just ridiculous. It took Dre 11 years to release 2 songs that are good but not crazy. He shot his own leg this time, it's over.

    • Soil

      I agree 100% Very soon, every artist known to man would have worked/contributed to this allegedly. I really don't think it will live up to it's expectations at the end of the day. Not hating, just saying.

  • Nathan

  • Renzo rollin

    Soopafly as a co-producer could be dope.
