Game Says Dr. Dre Will "Never" Release "Detox"

Game compares Dr. Dre's fabled "Detox" to Jesus, asking, "Will you ever get to see Jesus? It's like a hip-hop Jesus."

Dr. Dre has been taking his sweet time with his long-awaited and oft-delayed final solo album Detox, which has been in the works for over a decade. Game, who has worked with the West Coast veteran on the LP since the onset of his career, recently chopped it up with VIBE, discussing how fans may never end up hearing the project.

"Detox, it's like Jesus," he said. "Will you ever get to see Jesus? It's like a hip-hop Jesus."

Even after Dre released a few singles over the past couple of years, Game doesn't think that the rapper will ever release the album until he's truly satisfied with the final product.

"Dre's a hard guy to please," adds Game, also stating how his Beats by Dre company interferes with the album. "He's so critical... If he doesn't become 100 percent happy, then we'll probably never end up hearing Detox. I'll say never."

    Detox will be dropped when Dr. Dre dies. That's the truth, I mean, the album is done, but, right now, it won't sell too much, so they are going to do like they did with Pac. They will let the album to drop with Dre dead, for like his "Grand Finale", and will sell like water!

  • Ivan187

    The bible says Jesus will come back to fight in Armaggedon, so we'll propably gonna hear "Detox" when the world is going to end.

    yoo people anyone knows the song?

      The Game "Dead People" produced by Dr. Dre leftover track from "The R.E.D. Album" released as ITunes Bonus Track on "Jesus Peace" (The song Game talked about in the beginning of the interview)

    Only way this album comes out is if Dr.Dre signs with YMCMB. I doubt he want to get outshined by Birdman, though.

    NEWS FLASH: Being a perfectionist is not a cause to be lingering on the same socalled perfectic album for over a decade. It sounds rediculous using words like "perfectionist", considering the actualamount of time taken, and the media attention this man gets. I honestly think the real hip hop heads have moved past albums like The Cronnic 2001 which went overtly commercial, and sucked out every inch of soul which Dr Dre had left within him

    fuck game, he's wack

  • d-nucks

    I think dre's own legacy has him shook...he is so afraid to tarnish his legacy that he will not put an album out that might fall short of expectations. Plus he is just not hungry anymore....he got dumbass poeple payin 200 dollars for some damn head phones....SMH

    • Anonymous

      I agree. But he also may not be giving himself enough credit for what he's contributed, aside from headphones.

  • Mcfly

    Ya know...Dre changed the game not once but twice! really...there is really no ground left to conquer! there is a lot of producers out there that are good in their own, you can probably name a few. I'm just saying Dre should drop some classic shit we all know and love, just to so we can have that shit. As long as it ain't as lazy as Dead People by game.

  • TruthHurts

    what's up with rappers rocking the big frame nerd glasses nowadays? nothing wrong with glasses, but damn, when did it become a 'gangsta' fashion trend to be seen with them on? smh fashionistas should be women, not men

    • Fact

      I understand what you're trying to say. But I feel that when all these rappers are growing up in the hood, they force themselves to dress in a certain way to fit in with everyone else around them. And then once they move out of the hood and starting earning good money, they can now dress how they want and buy the newest fashion trends. I also feel that once they move out of the hood their attitude changes. It's like for me once I moved away from where I am from and met new people my attitude towards them changed.

    • TruthHurts

      To wear an accessory solely for the sake of making a statement or following a trend, in my view, is super weak. It's Kanye Style. I don't care if anyone is still selling crack or whatnot, the issue to me is the fact of matter that they say they have a certain upbringing and attitude, and that gets turned on its head when they start following mass media trends and throw on the horn-rimmed glasses for the hell of it

    • Fact

      What's wrong with the glasses? And it's not like all these rappers are gangsters anymore. Do they live in the hood? No! Do they still sell crack and go around with gangs and guns? No! Game is not really a gangster anymore, same with all these other rappers. They think they are, but they're not. If Game was a gangster he would still be living in Compton and selling crack with the bloods.

    lol @ the hip hop jesus. Game is trying to hard to put in his jesus piece themes

  • Zee

    Dr. Dre has done too much for Hip Hop... I won't be angry if he doesn't drop Detox. Disappointed, sure but not angry at him... He gave us alot of classics and classic artist such as em,k dot, game etc... Fuck Dre haters.. He has done alot for Hip Hop

Faggot ass niggas at every corner, not just exclusive to niggas, white boys, messicans, asians, this gay shit out of control. gotta love being an 80's baby, mid 80's, fuck the 90's babies. Bunch of faggots. chicks should be mad at this shit, niggas is on some dick shit, real niggas is a rarity now. Keep it WEST COAST!!! Fuck Gayme, fuck Dr. Gay, fuck Kendick Gaymar. Rep the REAL WEST, WC, Cube, Quik, Eiht, T, Daz, soopafly.

  • GOATmaybe

    You know, I feel that probably a big reason Dre won't release it is because no matter what he's done Detox is going to suck. No matter what he does, He could have the tightest production getting verses written by the greatest lyricists and have amazing songs but at this point none of that matters. The wait and the hype around Detox has made expectations so high that there flat out cannot exist an album good enough to meet them.

    Detox is a ploy to stay relevant without significant releases and by releasing singles of an album that was never going to be released....Genius

    • Mr. Wow

      Beats By Dre, Have you heard of them? Aftermath, Kendrick Lamar? No need for him to try and stay relevant. He is more relevant than any of your favorite rappers and I'm sure making more funds.

    as a fan at this point i dont care if it drops or not...the world keeps on moving. aint no one waiting for detox anymore...u want detox to come out? stop buying his fucking headphones! we will get to hear it..once dre dies! hes gonna try to out do pacs catalog

  • Anonymous

    Detox is an old legend, just like the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Slash, etc...

  • kennyken

    i think dre heard people criticize the few singles he released and people didn't take it too well. so he just flopped it. maybe he's making more music

  • Holla

    That's a bad comparison.... Jesus stood up from death, so Detox will too? Lol..... The man tried to say something smart while it's bullshit. Should've compared Detox to the Roman Empire, projects becoming bigger and bigger and then it suddenly fucked up...

    Dr. Dre...the Hip Hop Jesus...WHO KNEW?

  • jerryc

    all i know is, that song hey young world thats on youtube where the guy snuck a camera in is phenomenal. Thats the dre sound we all are cravin for, and if he puts out shit like that I think he will knock it out the fuckin park. He tried to change with the times and sound of music because he thought he needed to. Truth is, there is no prominent sound in hip hop today. For a while Techno was dominating, then the southern trap beats, but now youre seeing guys like kendrick, joey badass, asap, etc. 2001 still sounds better than any album ive ever heard, and I mean that as a rap album and literally the acoustics. He should put it out right now. After Kendrick did so well, you would think he had a change of heart

  • stg

    thats why eminem use his own beats on most of his albums because dre is too lazy

    • Bob

      Premo doesn't hand production out to gimmicky pop stars very often so a Premo/Eminem collab is highly unlikely.

    • RC

      Co-sign!! Em & DJ Premier would be bananas!! Can't believe they haven't actually worked together yet, it's a crime for someone on Em's level to not work with Premier!

    • georgel

      Thats bullshit, eminem doesnt need dre, he just needs a decent producer. imagine a dr premier song with eminem, or any great respected producer. no one looks at dre as the best producer anymore. i can tell u the last time i heard a dre song that i thought was anything as good as his 90's stuff

    • CB

      and that's why Eminem beats pretty much suck. Em, 50, & Snoop need Dre to be great.

  • Alo

    It is simple if he drops Detox and fails his business in Earphone will loose credibility, most people think he can release hit album like chronicle 2001 but he does not have what it takes anymore, the cretivity is washed out, Detox will be for ever a bait for us to buy his earphones

    I wanna hear that Dre and Too Short song Mans Best Friend aka pussy. I always thought too short and dre would be dope together. i think one disc should have all west coast vets on it like Ice Cube, Kurupt, Snoop, Alkaholiks, King Tee, Xzibit, Game, Ice T, and the other disc should please the baby audiences and have Wayne, Drake, Akon, Kesha etc. lol

  • That Nigga In His Basement

    Foolish lookin asses. Detox is not a Dr. Dre LP but an ancient tradition passed down for centuries by the elites he is associated with. The ceremony of Detox (or "Aintnowunwaytingfordis" as it was known in the 17th century) involved the most esteemed members of the satanic elites stripping naked and slathering each other with the blood of a virgin peasant female. This ritual is still celebrated in the elites' private marigold garden deep in Southern Europe. Nowadays they dance in their pool of virgin blood and chant the fake tracklist to Detox as a sort of celebration that the New World Order is in fruition. Jayceon is merely an underling and is using this interview as sort of forecast to us of what will come. Like the resurrection of Jesus, what the elites have planned is of a power greater than us. Smarten up.

      Yeah cuz who could really trust the judgement of the guy who made one of the best, if not the best hip hop album of all time with The Chronic...another classic with 2001...and was a huge part of making Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, Game & now Kendrick Lamar successful. Dre obviously doesn't know what he's doing..........

  • Hip Hop please

    F*ck Detox He should call it the Chronic 3 Feat: Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, Game Kendrick Lamar, Ab Soul, Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q Daz & Kurupt + Warren G & the late great Nate Dogg CLASSIC

    It's annoying when people say Dr. Dre is a "perfectionist" so Detox will take a long time. A perfectionist would work his ass off until that record is amazing and drop it...not just avoid working on it.

Talkin about poppin glocks, servin rocks, and hittin switches Now she's a gangsta rollin with gangsta bitches

    Just for stating the obvious, I hope Detox comes out next week.

  • Aladdin

    Why are we still waiting for a "detox" in hip hop. Heavy metal fans are never hoping judas priest puts out an album or black sabbath. But hip hop journalism is constantly reporting dr.dre and lauryn hill like we really even need them anymore.

    • Anonymous

      Cos hip hop sucks at the moment. Yes slowly you can see it coming back with the return of the boom bap and new artists like Fashawn, jay electronica, Joey badass, action Bronson, Kendrick Lamar and his crew etc are bringing back the lyrical side of hip hop. I think with tracks like nas and Scarface hip hop has ushered in a new era that will erase the last 5 years or as some people say the dark period.

    • blahblahblahblah

      Black Sabbath is coming out with a new album though.

    • z7ra_Vv

      Its not that we desperately need Detox but hopefully when it does come it will be great music to add to the collection
