Slim The Mobster Speaks On Dr. Dre's "Detox," Says 50 Cent Forgot How To Make Street Records

The Dre protege opens up about a few topics including how Dre's hiatus was blown out of proportion.

Slim the Mobster has previously spoken on his working relationship with Dr. Dre, offering his opinion on why Detox still hasn’t been released. During an interview with Good*Fella Media, the Dre protégé explained that his comments on taking a break from the industry were blown out of proportion and that he still might have plans to release the LP.

“I ain’t ever said ‘Fuck Detox.’ I don’t know if that’s the case. I think it got kind of taken out of hand, what he was saying. He was saying, he’s about to let us do us because of where his motivation,” he said. “I don’t think he’s saying ‘Scratch Detox, fuck Detox,’ none of those things. I think people took that as what he was saying, but again, he’s not a fucking rapper. And people forget that.

“For him, he’s a producer. [Rapping] is not what he does,” he continued. "Detox was a thought when Eminem came out, 50, Game, all these dudes was involved. All those things played out and they turned out to kind of be iffy, because Game and 50 got into it and little things like that and dudes trying to come out with headphones. All those things. It’s a weird thing. I don’t want to be in competition with my boss. You can’t outshine the nigga that gave you your shine."

He also touched on how getting money can often change a rapper's ability to speak on subjects that related to his or her struggle. Slim spoke on 50 Cent in particular, noting that he isn't sparking beef with him but that getting rich affected his rhymes.

“50 got a lot of money and he kind of forgot what it was to make a street record. I’m not saying that to talk shit about him, but when you get money - even Dre - it’s hard to talk about being broke when you’ve got money,” he said. “Don’t expect me to rap about being broke when you’ve got money.”

Watch the full interview below, where he also speaks on his uncle Freeway Ricky Ross, rapper Rick Ross and more.

      What has he done??? listen I've never heard his music, but if you have a working relationship with DR.Dre you must be doing something right.I mean he's atleast doing enough good shit 2 have an opinion.

  • Schweinepriester Helmut Smith

    I checked out a few of his tracks and he is just plain boring. Like a skinny 50 Cent. I think Dre and Em are running out of interesting artists. In Compton and elsewhere.

    Rick ross does not even notice you. he signed with Dre , all of sudden he thinks he is now relevant. asks Bishop Lamont, Dre would drop ur ass before 2013.

    at the end of the day. you are still a wack rapper. Better parley up with Rozay, so u can still be relevant after Dre drops your wack ass.

    This cat is stupid one should have to rap about killing and robbing anymore, once he's paid, it real soon, no need too, it's time to chill count sack.

  • jr88

    why are you guys hating on slim?...he was just giving his opinion... 50 didnt forget how to do a street record its just that interscope by interscope i mean jimmy is bitter at 50....think about it , ever since 50 signed that viatamin water deal it seems that interscope has fucked over 50.....i mean they dropped gunit when they had a couple of flops but what lable hasnt had flops shady had waaaaaaaaaaay more....you mean to tell me a rapper that has sold over 30 million isnt a priority anymore?...that seems strange.. 50 cant be controlled and that bothers jimmy esspecially after him not getting that cut of 100 million..lol

  • YADIG

    I'm a homo just like Slim

  • I'm At Work And Bored

    It's funny to me that people give Dre all the credit for 50 blowing up? Umm yeah, it was Eminem who gave 50 a shot, NOT Dre. Dre just jumped on the band wagon. In Da Club was a D12 throw away track that 50 turned it into a mega hit. 50 did Dre a favor if anything.

  • qb

    Who is this nigga to be talking so much shit? You have no fans dick...Only reason you on this shit is because of the Dre afflation, but still nobody gives a fuck about you. The nigga is dissing curtis but he's making the same moves as that clown nigga. I bet you any money his shit won't even come out.

  • I'm At Work And Bored

    I posted this before but I'm posting it again. (It was after Slim indicated Detox has a Drake feature) It's funny this guy actually thinks Dre is going to release his album. Dr. 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. After I saved thee, why u must commit such blasphemy???!!! Slim: Please my majesty please don't drop me! (slim starts crying) I even got an Aftermath tattoo for Christ sake. And next, I was going to tattoo your face with a heart outline and... Dre: my son, I'm going to tell u the same thing I did to King H, Rakim, Raekwon, hittman, EVE, Busta 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. Muhahahahahahaha

  • I'm At Work And Bored

    Ahahahaha, this clown. 50 forgot how to make street records? but then again what do you expect from a moron who got an aftermath tattoo on his back.

    Dr. Dre's hiatus was blown out of proportion?! It's still going on! If he wants people to stop talking he can release some bloody music.

  • Anonymous

    Yeah I'm pretty sure Slim and 50 are cool with each other. Slim was talking some real shit and I'm pretty sure 50 can realize that and respect his opinion. It's not like he said anything false. Anyways Rick Ross is an idiot. Everyone on his label sucks and his career is trending downward. If Rick Ross was a stock I would be selling cause he already reached his peak. I like slim and I think he can make some good music but he has a lot to prove as a musical artist. Hopefully he can deliver.

  • jay

    Aww man this nigga is so fucking funny! Talking about movies that will never come out, talking about who is the best in the game but if he drop an album it would be the biggest flop in the rap history, talking about his uncle that is one of the most ridiculous drug dealers... crying all the time that someone stole his name, aw man he swallow a lot of cocks in the prison!!!

    • jay

      what would happen if every rick ross in the country starts to asks for compensation? rick ross loves KOD so do I! I will sue him for 10 mill, rick ross loves to ride on his maybach so do I, and I will sue him for another 10 mill... an so on.. the real ross isn't the only one drug dealer in the world, he isn't the only one with that beard you know whatimsayin... probably in the court they laughed at the real ross for that. who would give you 10 millions for nickname uh? this nigga slim and his uncle are broke-ass niggas!! no movie will come out no music will come out! dre will drop him in a year no one would listen to this ugly nigga!

    just cuz you're rich doesn't mean you can't give the poor fans something to relate to..music isn't always about the pin pointed truth but rather to give listeners something to relate to..obviously most artists say shit that never happened but the listeners like it cuz some can relate.
