Dr. Dre Speaks On Collaborating With Kendrick Lamar & Slim The Mobster

The West Coast veteran says that he'll be working with the two artists shortly.

Dr. Dre is reportedly close to being finished with Detox, with plans to focus on other artists once he’s finished. Speaking with Global Grind (via HHNM) at the launch of Diddy and Jimmy Iovine’s Culo by Mazzucco, he discussed focusing on Kendrick Lamar and Slim The Mobster, who will be the “final two artists” he will work with over the next few years.

“I am never going to give music up,” he said. “Music is like air to me, [music] is like oxygen, so I am always doing that. As soon as I get back to Los Angeles, I am back in the studio doing my thing. I have a couple of new artists that I am excited about, Kendrick Lamar and Slim The Mobster. These are the next two artists, and these are probably my final two artists that I am going to be working with at least for the next couple of years. I am going to devote all my attention to them and make sure their sh*t comes out the way it should be. I am just having fun with life right now!”

K. Dot recently said that Detox is in the mixing phase, while Snoop Dogg echoed his sentiments by explaining that the album was coming sooner rather than later.

    to bad he made people think that detox was actually coming out thats not cool people actually believed him for everyone who doesnt no Detox will never see the light of day it has been a money scheme and it worked

  • Jack

    I've waited so long for Detox that I don't even care if it comes out anymore. My teenage kids don't even know who he is. I doubt they will get excited about listening to a 50 year olds album about smoking weed, big screen tv's and 64 impala's. Dre killed his own career.

      I hear you bro. He has waited way too long, and Detox will sell 1/10th of what it could have if he actually put this out 5 years ago.

  • hey

    people should lower their expectations about detox cuz it will never sound like his other albums. times have changed

  • rise and shine

    before people jump on this and start sayin shit like, 'fuck dre, its bin 10years hes a sellout' i just wanna say im hyped for detox...still, 2001 is one of the best albums ever made, i will listen to that lp till the day i die, obviously detox wont be as good, but still, dre gets the best out of rappers on his beats, so i cant wait 2 hea kendrick on a few tracks kendrick, eminem, snoop and slim da mobster are on detox, anyone kno who else will feature onit???

  • K.Dot

    Kdot is not signed...YET! im sure Dre and Jimmy can convince him to sign to them. I mean...if they offer you a million dollar advance and Dre beats (not the headphones) + Dre to exec produce your album..who would refuse? im not saying I want Kendrick to sign with Aftermath (we all know how Dre does his artist)...but it'll probably be the best move for him to blow up.

  • Anonymous

    he already gave up on music whats he talking about only way i see them collaborating is some kendrick lamar edition custom beats headphones by dre

  • SutterKane

    Kendrick isnt signed to Aftermath so maybe he has a chance of an album release with Dre Production, but Slim Da Mobsta album is coming out Nevuary 2nd, the Day after Bishop Lamonts record
