Snoop Dogg, DJ Quik, The D.O.C. & Others Team Up For Dr. Dre's "Detox"

More details emerge from the West as Snoop, Quik, The D.O.C., Battlecat and others team up to create 4 songs for Dr. Dre's "Detox."

More details have emerged pertaining to Dr. Dre's Detox, though fans have been skeptical about its release for years. The album, which originally began to take form in 2002 has undergone several changes, many release dates, years of anticipation and years of criticism. Dr. Dre has even faced criticism from his longtime collaborators Eminem (most notably on one of the album's singles "I Need a Doctor") and Snoop Dogg, who said Dre is surrounding himself with the wrong people

Although many have said the album was close to being released for years, Kendrick Lamar most recently announced this news again. According to Lamar, the album is "basically done" and "getting mixed." Snoop Dogg also shared in the sentiments and it seems he is a greater part of the process now. 

In a recent video, Snoop Dogg joined forces with DJ Quik, Battlecat, The D.O.C. and others teamed up to create four songs for Dr. Dre's Detox. According to Snoop, two of those songs would be solo cuts for Dre while the other two would be collaborations between Snoop and Dre. Two videos were released, both featuring all of these artists collectively working on the project and discussing the need to release quality work. The video footage can be seen below.

    Lol at them makin tracks JUST for Dre. This things gonna come out and its gonna have like 3 tracks that Dre did himself, everything else is gonna be other people.

  • DK

    I lost interest as soon as Dre said it wasn't a concept album anymore. There needs to be more Rap Concept albums, there have been so few really good ones. The only ones that come to mind are "Minstrel Show" by Little Brother and "A Grand Don't Come For Free" by The Streets.

    I heard i Bar is on the new detox, but it might not be true..

  • Frank

    Shit aint never coming n if it does no ones goin to care lets be real here people!

    • Real Talk

      lol all you motherfuckers are funny. Detox was never meant to materialize into a real project. Didnt you read the KRS book ruminations? He said you should always promote an upcoming project even if it isnt real. The real question is: Why are you you supposed hip hop heads dying to hear an album from a guy who not only has an army of ghostwriters, but also needs other artists to spit his verses first so he can understand the flow? Dre is a producer...period..he never wrote for NWA, didnt write the chronic...actually starting to thing dude is illerate...would u anticipate MY album is it had some banging Dre beats and Eminem and Snoop wrote all my verses?!?! lol wake the fuck up, Dre is a rapper not a hip hop artist..learn the difference and you can free yourself from the media trap that is Detox.

  • lootdiamondz

    nothing released thats said to be on the album will be. shits wack. what theyre workin on in that video right there is what it is. SINESTER! str8! you already kno whats its gonna be. smack u in the face west_coast G shit.

    They just basically sold the album. In my mind, i already purchased that mutha f----- . Big love to Snoop for bringing the essense of the chronic back on the scene.

  • Get in there DRE!!!

    Great videos, awesome to see all this talent in the same room together vibing for Detox, but where the fuck Dre at??? This is supposed to be his album, you'd expect dude to be there when it's being done!!! I know about ghostwriters and ghostproducers he's used in the past, but still, damn.. couldn't you at least show up for the video to give an impression you actually did something except mix that shit? I have no reason to believe the album will be anything less than great, but the absence of Dre here is just DISAPPOINTING. Other than that, the clips were nice!

  • Dae II Dae

    Producers LOVE to see this type of behind the scenes... I love that passion you hear from Snoop seven minutes into that first video. That is no different from what you hear in a locker room from a head coach, a board room from a CEO-that's how you get a championship recipe. Paint a clear picture for the team of what you want so everybody is on the same page. That was legendary though: Battlecat, Quik, DJ Pooh, DOC, RBX, that was just missing Nate Dogg (rip), Dre and Crooked I...I'm just sayin'

  • str82dapoint

    This is crazy... all these dudes in the studio to make Dre's album and he is nowhere in either video. These sessions are probably gonna be scrapped like 90% of the songs that have been made for Detox. This is gonna be one of those things where when Dre passes away they are gonna have a Detox 1-20 to release and the record execs are gonna be eatin off the unreleased shit for YEARS. Funny how Snoop said Detox is gonna feature Em... no shit! He's on the second single I Need A Doctor! LOL That ain't news!

    • Jon

      Snoop was talking about "Slim" referring to Slim Da Mobster, not Eminem. Why would Snoop call Eminem by his nickname?

    CAN'T WAIT FOR DETOX literally :( been waiting for 10 years

  • SutterKane

    Tired of clowns talking about "Old ass Rappers" on this site Em is about to turn 40 and outsells all these younger dudes out here, Jay-Z creepin towards 50 and outsells most of them, Talent doesnt have an age limit Plus, If I ran a label, Id make my target demographic cats in there 30's and up anyway, since most the kids out here were born with a keyboard up their ass and probably couldnt even tell you what a record store looks like. lol, your biggest Icon is Lil Wayne and in 15 years he's only sold 10 million albums, smh, his best seller is only triple platinum, which is a joke

    I just loved to see them creative juices and passion in the studio... them cats is vibin

  • David James Robinson

    Spotted RBX in that second vid

  • Anti-matter

    I've got no doubt in my mind now that Detox is going to eclipse every hip hop album thats been released in the last 10 years and every hip hop album to be released in the next 10 years. I really cant see that Detox has been delayed for so long for no reason. This is going to be a monster!!

    omg does anyone fucking care anymore? we keep hearing about all these songs that are gonna be on detox and we've been waiting for this album for more than a decade now. dre just needs to shut the fuck up until it's like a week before release time because at this point he's just pissin everyone off.

    snoop does some questionable shit for money but at the end of the day he always been trying to get back with dre. dre been ducking his legacy for years. dre needs to man up and put the album out. you made gangsta rap popular, now finish it like a man. d.o.c., snoop, just the guys that need to be in there. dre is sheltered, he needs to let loose and release the funk.

  • Swordz

    Thank god for Snoop. Hopefully, "I need a whiteboy" is not on the album - that song is offical the worse song Dre Dre has ever put out to date. Let Scott Scorch, Quick etc handle the beats - with Jay & DOC and Snoop on the pen.... EM can't produce or write anything that sounds remotely "cool" anymore.

      FACTFACTFACT dre and eminem have no chemistry wghat so ever anymore, recovery was the most homosexuel hiphop album ever put out, especially by one of the best rappers ever, i need a doctor shoulda went on recovery......hopefully eminem is only on afew tracks on detox even tho kush was sick, akon ruined it, so i hope that aint on detox, and die hard, the beat was sick 0:00 - 0:10....but then eminem had to scream all over it and the beat changed, hope that track isnt on detox aswell fuck...the only track i want on detox is hey young world, that snippet is sickkk asss fuckkkkk

    • BING

      real shit. get eminem away from dre. eminem had dre sounding like a depressed faggot white boy on "i need a doctor". eminem has skills but the boy is a shell of himself. he has no heart, despite all the shit he's been through. he used to write the flyest shit for dre, that eminem is long gone. d.o.c. is the answer, and will always be the answer. never penned wack shit, ever. he won't let dre drop BS like "i need a doctor", he is the guy everything needs to go through. took long enough for dre to come to his senses. dre and snoop, batman and robin. d.o.c. is alfred. makes sure they got everything they need, ready to go.

  • jason

    Best Plan for Detox: release it on black friday so you make weekend money for X-mas. make it a double cd since its taken soo damn long and we all know you have like 400 songs in the vault. one disc should have the heavyweights on it like Warren G, Xzibit, DJ Quik, King Tee, Kurupt, Snoop, DAZ, and the other disc should have all these newcumers in the game. that way all of America is pleased.

    I just left Detox I didn't see one single fuckin doctor never met a patient called Dre! What's the difference between Relapse & Detox? When you relapse you get a release date! The Next Episode? Detox Season 66!

I'm a massive hip-hop nerd and buy EVERYTHING. I will not be purchasing this. No respect shown to the fans at all.

    fuck Dr. Dre and fuck Detox. shits been in the making forever and a day. Since when was it cool to look forward to an album that is well known ghost written entirely??? Since when did ghost writing become accepted in hiphop. Dre and Snoop admit to having ghost writers. Shit is ridiculous. Dre should stick to just producing other peoples shit. Things like this is what make me mad about hiphop along with the bullshit we have allowed to happen to it as of now. Bring true lyricism back people. Please for the sake of a genre, stop accepting this shit.

      @swordz shut up mr homework. cats like you piss me off from your stupidity. Its not a fucking artform its fucking fraud. now its acceptable which it shouldnt be. and tho his 1st two albums are "classics" they rly shouldnt be since ITS NOT HIS DAMN WORK. You fake ass hiphop head go plank on the bottom of a lake and respect true artists who WRITE THERE OWN SHIT! and as far as wayne goes, its ben rumored about his ghost written albums but as far as Dre its PURE FACT

    Ok I finally figured out Dr. Dre "Game" he actually has no intention of releasing and thats the conclusion that I came up with. 1# what would happen if he brings out detox and it flops then Beats by dre and Hewlet packard deals would lose a lot of steam .he has succesfully made a career the last 10 years of eating off of eminem 50cent,Game and other various productions.The reason it hasnt come out is because he doesnt have anything to present that gonna pop Have you guys heard of anyone work on a album for half the time (5 years)and it come out and everyone said "oh my God" that sthe best shit I heard in my life. Hip Hop constantly eveolves I dont believe you come out with dated music and it still be fresh.
