Dr. Dre "Inspired" To Get Back Into The Studio

The producer is anxious to get back to his "first love."

Now that he's got his own degree program at USC, Dr. Dre is ready to get back to music. "I'm more inspired to go back into the studio now," Dr. Dre says in an interview with LA Weekly. "Beats is rolling, this [USC] thing is happening, and it's incredible. Now I'm ready to go back to my first love."

Dre says that the USC program, the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation that he and longtime business partner Iovine donated $70 million to create, will not impact his work on his much-delayed Detox album, though he's not working on that project in particular right now. 

"I'm going back to the studio," Dre says. "Not for any specific reason, but just to record because I love to record music. I'm going back in and hopefully the next Kendrick Lamar or the next Eminem walks in the door and I can work with that artist. I'm going to record forever."

As for Dre's history, his time in groundbreaking gangster rap group N.W.A is being made into a feature film that is also getting off the ground. "We just got the green light from Universal," Dre says. "I was just with [Ice] Cube and F. Gary Gray yesterday writing the script, so it looks like it's really happening. Gary is directing the movie. It's going to be a true story. It's going to be based on all the true events that happened."

But with a legacy that includes N.W.A, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, his solo work and Beats Electronics, Dre says that his work with USC is the most noteworthy. "This is absolutely the biggest thing I've been a part of in my entire career," the producer says. "I am just excited to be a part of something that is going to be there forever. How many people can say that? This is huge."

    Gucci Mane realest rapper ever. - T.I. snitch to the feds - Young Jeezy was never bmf - 50 Cent snitch and was never in jail but a youthcamp - Game was never a banger but lived the life of his brother in his lyrics - Nas Escobar never sold drugs - Ice Cube never was a gangbanger - Dr Dre never was a gangbanger - 2pac was a ballerina and never sold drugs after he become famous he was doing some stupid stuff like beating and shooting at people because he though he could get away with it. Without Suge Knight 2pac was just a skinny motherfucker. Oh and i like his music so fuck you. - Mobb deep are the biggiest pussies in rap they are short as midgets and keep talking this g shit but never did g shit. Gucci is WACK but the realest rapper ever!!!!!

    The real reason DETOX had constantly delayed in the past 12 years is because they couldn't find the proper medium which would be suitable for such project. The CD was out of question from day one, since it would take 18 disc to make a retail version. So the default option was 4 DVD (bonus tracks included), but then problem arose from the production and collaboration credits. Namely, the list were so long that it turned the booklet into a 213 page novel, thus it simply didn't fit (physically) in the DVD case. To overcome the issues Dre wanted to drop the project on Blu-Ray, but Interscope pushed back the release date due to the low availability of compatible players in the market. Finally, in 2010 they gave the green light to DETOX (thus dropped "Kush" and months later "I Need a Doctor"), it seemed everything is all right, when they realised that the Doc produced so many material in the meantime (and he considered every one of them as a "must" for the album), that despite using Blu-Ray discs, they ran out of space. So that's where we at now.

      the real reason is because he was able to become more internationally known by creating headphones. More dolla, dolla bills y'all. Can't hate a guy for wanting to expand, but it still sucks that we don't have the album. Don't talk about it unless you're going to deliver

    Love seeing all the "fuck detox" bullshit everytime Dre is mentioned. Fact is I think the project is dead myself HOWEVER I hope to fuck he puts it together. All claiming they are not fucking with it are utter liars... the album will be fucking fire because that's what Dre does and like everyone else you will cop the album to. STFU!

    • Anonymous

      ^^trolling much??

    • zerocool6687

      Yet it is not on the album... they were supposed to be lead singles before the record release right? That was a year ago... I am guessing Dre rethought that one after the release as it sounded a lot more like something from a slim shady track. Now consider that "In tha Club" and "This is How we do" were both supposed to on that album... it seems to me like he has a lot of shit to sift through for that album IF he ever actually puts it out. IF he does I am sure it will be another classic!

    Dr Dre is wack. He steal beats while Wayne produces original beats. YMCMB's dominating. Jay Sean is far better than Dr Dre.

    Just a promotion tool. Can't believe people still waiting on Detox. It's a marketing tool. Everytime they have side projects to promote (headphones, new business ventures etc.) they have a quote about working on music. The questions are pre-meditated, they get questions they get to approve before these things. Ain't no Detox or nothing coming. Dre is done musically. I respect his legacy but that's the truth. He's not doing music no more.
