Snoop Dogg Says Dr. Dre's "Detox" Is "Almost Finished," Features Eminem

Tha Doggfather gives an update on the oft-delayed third solo album from Dre.

Kendrick Lamar recently said that Dr. Dre’s near mythical album Detox was in the mixing phase, and Snoop Dogg is singing the same tune. In the latest issue of NME magazine, Tha Doggfather gives an update on the LP and claims that it will arrive sooner rather than later.

“Yeah, we’ve been working on it. It’s almost finished. So that’s coming out soon,” he revealed.

He also explained that he has never before said that the album was nearing completion but promises that it will be delivered soon. He also said that Eminem contributes to the project, but did not elaborate on how involved he will be in the project.

“I ain’t never said it was almost finished. He might, but that’s my first time I ever said it. I was always saying it was taking too long to get done. It feels good now. We got Slim [Eminem] on it.”

    he was high and's normal he doesnt remember

  • Humz

    Maybe Slim meant Slim Da Mobster? Cuz everyone knows Eminem is on it... He's on I Need A Doctor and Die Hard...

  • Sir Crimson

    Yo HipHopDX we don't need clarification that Slim refers to Eminem. Everyone knows that.

  • David Bunz

    bet you he's aiming for a christmas release. we'll see..

  • Swordz

    Dre: Okay, that's enough for this month. Snoop: Yea doggy, we about to wrap this up Fo sure. Dre: Well I th.. Snoop: Fo sure, Fo sure. Fizzle Dre: I'm gonna ahead and.. Snoop: Nizzle Mac Fizzle. Giggly wiggle. Dre: ...... Okay Nigga get out.

    I never believed any of these dudes talkin bout Detox until I heard Kendrick was on it. Then it just made sense. There's been a pattern when it comes to Dr. Dre using a collaborator of sorts, as I will underline below: Tha Chronic (feat. Snoop Dogg) 2001 (feat. Eminem) Detox (feat. Kendrick Lamar Tha Chronic had the Doggy Dogg on almost half the tracks. Then Doggystyle came out and propelled Snoop into superstardom. 2001's most prominent artist (other than Hittman & Snoop) was Slim Shady (who had been out mainstream for more than a year I believe, but was further propelled after the success of THIS album - you could say he actually stole Hittman's spot, proving to be a more versatile and marketable flagship artist for Aftermath at that time) Now, Kendrick already has a pretty decent following (J Cole numbers though? 200,000?) We'll see. But I suspect after Detox drops (my estimate is for 4th quarter - any time before April 1st, 2012) that K. Dot is gonna have a lot more fans. Either way, I'm diggin him now. Section .80 was the best album I've heard all year. I'm just glad Dre likes him too, so I can finally hear that album I've been waiting to listen to these last 10 years. Here's hoping he had the good judgement to include at least a few songs with Nate Dogg on the hook, for good old times. R.I.P. Nate. P.S. - I find it a bit suspect that Snoop doesn't mention Lamar, considering him & Game went and endorsed him as the new king of the West Coast. I wonder how much presence Snoop is actually gonna have on the album. I'll make a final guesstimate and say on appearances: 7 songs feat. Kendrick, 2 feat. Snoop & 3 with Eminem. That sounds about right. And 2 or more with Nate Dogg. (fingers crossed!)

    • Reepacheep

      Cool reading, but although The Chronic did feature Snoop on mad tracks, 2001 only featured Eminem on 2 joints: What's the Difference and Forgot About Dre. It's true that the Chronic was the vessel that brought Snoop into stardom, but with 2001, Eminem had already made a name for himself. So really, there isn't much of a pattern here. Just speculation.

  • Vimal

    Ya'll have some dang faith I know DRE will come out with it I know it's coming just show some respect he wants it to be perfect and that takes a while to do so chill yall This shitll proly be so ill my ers will bleed... haha

    Almost not good enough, put the dagg album out already, stop the all the hype

  • Thomas Curry Curré

    He is talking about slim... that could be Eminem or Slim The Mobster, but i expect them both to to be on the album so it doesnt matter

  • Anonymous

    im glad that dre at least had The D.O.C. back together for this album otherwise i dont know....

  • Ozzy Salas

    of course its gonna have em on it. dre needs em to sell that shit because all the cats that have been waiting for detox to drop since its announcement are probably dead or in nursing homes and the young kids right now dont know shit about dre but they love eminem.

    • jack johnson

      co-sign Ozzy, I used to be a big Dr. Dre fan, I got every song he put out and many of his unreleased shit, I was waiting forever for Detox, but I realize now that if it ever does come out, sadly its going to suck in comparison with his other albums, and Eminem is gonna use that same really annoying flow he's been doing which will ruin any song he appears on, but all the stupid little kids don't know any better

    • Kizman

      no offence,but you are the ugliest person I have ever seen. If I didn't know any better I'd assume your mom was a titty waitress at hooters, got pregnant, was fired for her slump in looks, then couldn't afford an abortion so she had the local kids try and whack her bulging fetus like a pinata,but u survived and that's how u ended up with such a disfigured face. Either that or u got baptised with scolding hot coffee,if a blind kid felt ur face he'd be asking why there's a pizza on this camels ass

  • CLM83

    Past 5 years I been readin the same shit. It's gon sound like sum shit that shoulda been released in 2006. The whole production better sound like "My Mom" "Insane" and "So Bad", please no "dub Step" shit. Either way ima buy it.

  • Anonymous

    Obviously its gonna feature Em, that's Dre's bitch... Fuck Detox, fuck dre, fuck snoop. fucking sellouts

    • fucku

      your a fuckin idiot... how are they sellouts.... dre and snoop pretty much created west coast hiphop, dre is a PRODUCER he dont even write his raps but still has such a need for albums becuz of the 2 he had are both classics and the game needs it. those 2 single handedly created west coast hiphop, which then bridged the gap for southern and midwest hiphop as well, before then it was all east coast NYC man.... wheres ya fuckin respect................and do u realize eminem never sold out neither, he just grew the fuck up.. the way he rap'd in the slimshady lp & marshall mathers lp are way different then how he evolved into the eminem show. yeah there was mainstream hiphop in there but there was plenty that wasnt, its a music industry u needa make money, but i say mainstream HIPHOP not the bullshit on the radio now. and look how he evolved to recovery, lyrically its such a classic, hes a old ass dude now he aint guna rap about rape'in bitches no more................and snoop u could arguably say sold out now.. the dudes over 40 years old and is still relevent in the game and STILL sells records u try to do that.

  • MBTM

    dre monkey ass gonna make niggas wait 15 years for an album produced by alex da kid. dr dre hasnt produced ONE song ive heard from detox. nigga is literally just a FACE. not writing his raps, and he's having weak niggas make his beats, so whats taking so long? dre will drop music when he's in a casket. jimmy iovine can't wait to rape dead dre's catalog like he did with 2pac. put the hit out jimmy, dre ain't doing shit.

    • ready to die ?

  • Anonymous

    It will be funny with all da anticipation dis album gets and it flops.honestly i dont see why people are eager or wanting to hear it,dats juss my opinion

    • Anonymous

      I don't think it'll flop from a sales standpoint, but critically it will get panned left and right. Too much hype, too long of a wait, too many shifts on content and names attached to the project. There's no way this album lives up to the near-mythical expectations people will approach it with.

  • just saying

    To be honest... Im at the age I don't wanna hear any new shit from him. I got The Chronic, Doggystyle and No One Can Do It Better on my ipod... I'm good. I could be wrong but the young cats don't care about Dre and the old cats rather listen to the old shit. Detox is just gonna be a disappointment.

    • realtalk

      WORD yo foreal look at kush.. come on now that is not vintage DRE at all he was trying to adapt to modern hiphop, fuck that man he gota do the classic shit whys he worried about the sales nd radio nd shit niggas rich as fuck (i need a doctor was good thou if u look from a lyrically standpoint its realshit, but even that isnt vintage D-R-E WESTCOAST HIPHOP)

  • BlazeDatIshUp

    I'll believe it when I can get a copy in my hands. I'm getting sick of folks saying it's done, mixing or some other ish, just put it out and done. Then again he said give him one more platinum plaque and fuck rap you can have it back, so maybe he's trying to make this the best shit out. We will see one way or another.....

  • former Drefan

    I don't think I want Detox anymore. That insecure steroid taking fuck doesn't even have the inspiration to co-produce his own songs anymore. An album full of average and corny tracks like "Kush" and "I need a Doctor" will ruin his legacy more than no Detox at all.

  • RichK

    To be honest, no-one really cares about this anymore. Don't get me wrong, "Kush" and "I Need A Doctor" are good songs but not 2001 standard. For me that album was the best music album I've ever heard or had the privelege to own. Don't forget Dre has lost his son quite recently, so music won't be his main priority. However he needs to deliver something that will make even the strongest haters believe that Dr. Dre can still do it how he used to. We shall see.

  • Lloyd 'June' Bryan

    This shit has been "Almost" finished for 7 years now. Either put it out, or stop fucking talking about it.

    We have a better chance of Biggie and Tupac coming back to life to blast Lil Wayne then for Dr Dre to release Detox. Not hating, Im just being real.

      So he can't make meaningful tracks anymore or he's whining. But if he just makes Shady tracks yall complain theres no substance. Just shut up. I agree on the Snoop thing though. Making songs w/ Katy Perry and Big Time Rush really???

  • Lilmarcci JonesCd

    Dre it aint happenin homie. people know you scared to release it the wait game been going on the past 3 years now. I feel you not wanting to release a album like yours when it's lil Wayne/poor hood-club music that these artist like YC, Ace Hood, Ricky Ross been releasing that low life niggas relate to. "Im selling dope, str8 off the Iphone" with their catchy lil tunes. OMG this just burns me up!!!!

    Rumors are going around the industry that Dr.Dre is never going to release Detox, because there is no detox album being worked on period. Some kind of elite mind trick game they are playing as a publicity stunt.

    does anyone even give a fuck anymore? i cant wait to hear dre steal some legends music again (like he did with the chronic)and push it off as his own. or maybe he's taking so long because he just found out how to dre doesnt even have to do anything anymore. he makes enough cash throwin his headphones in almost every video you see, get this fruit cake outta the limelight and shine on the underground for once
