Slim The Mobster Speaks On Dr. Dre's "Detox," Says He Heard Drake & Jay-Z Features

Dr. Dre's protege doesn't confirm guest appearances, but says that he heard a few tracks for the elusive project.

Dr. Dre sent shockwaves through the Hip Hop community earlier this week, revealing that he wants to take a break from music after decades on the grind. Speaking with MTV’s RapFix Live, his protégé Slim the Mobster said that he deserves a break from making music after everything he’s contributed to the culture.

“After 27 years and for the past time that I’ve been around, I know for a fact that he hasn’t been out the studio long,” he said. “So let him have a break. He gave us Eminem and 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg, The Game - he gave us a lot of things in his time. There are some rappers who ain’t give us nothing. So let the man have fun now.”

He also spoke on hearing songs intended for Detox. Slim said that while he didn’t hear a Lil Wayne cut for the elusive album, he listened to one track featuring Drake and another featuring Jay-Z. He wasn’t confirming the features, only because Dre tends to be picky when it comes to settling on a final tracklist.

“I don’t know, he picky. He doesn’t care about that name stuff. It’s got to be appeasing to him and what he likes,” he said. “And the thing too is people tend to forget that he is not a rapper. A lot of people forget that. He is a producer. That is where his craft is - he’s a producer, he makes the music. That’s why Eminem albums sound the way they do. People tend to forget that.”

    Dre: yo slim, I'm dropping u from my aftermath label Slim: huh? But why my lord, I Luv you Dre: didn't I tell thee thou shalt not reveal any secrets regarding Detox? Now everybody knows about Drake feature and its going to take me another 10 years to finish detox. Slim: please my majesty please don't drop me (slim starts crying) I evengot an Aftermath tattoo for Christ sake Dre: my son, I'm going to tell u the same thing I did to King Tee, Rakim, Raekwon, hittman, EVE, busts rhymes, Bishop Lamont...(Dre goes on naming rappers for another 2 hours) Get the hell out of my studio and get over it! Slim: please Dre, please I'm sorry Dre: I don't have time for this, if u don't mind, I gotta go change the name of my label to Eminem records, because he's the only one coming out "All I need is just Slim" shady that is. Muhahahaha

    Drake feature? Ahahaha. Oh i finally get the concept now. Dre is quitting real hip hop and detoxing by making an R&B music. Yeah, I can't wait to hear Dre sing love songs.

    oh eminem's albums sound shitty because of him? get outta there dre!

  • BSixx

    Its all BULLSHIT, Dre is LAZY. When he was on Death Row he would take years to do a single song. 2pac finally called him out on it, and then he left Death Row. I love Dre, huge fan! But the way he has been dragging us all along with Detox is bullshit. Get your lazy ass in the fucking studio and make some fucking music! And in return you make millions of dollars.

  • casper21

    every time i see a news feed or post that gets me excited about this release, the next story makes me not even wanna hear it. I don't care if he has the greatest records in the vault with wayne and drake, I don't wanna hear them on detox, I don't even wanna hear Jay's voice on the record. Let him ghostwrite a verse or two instead.

    no lil wayne on detox

  • Senieg

    So will Detox come out after this break?

  • whatup

    I agree with that. He's given us a lot of music and he is a producer first and foremost. People need to let him work, give it a rest, and let the man rest. Only then will Detox come out.
