Eleven months into 2009, the year is nearly complete without any of the Detox offerings Dr. Dre and Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine promised to release before the calendar turned. The pair said the Jay-Z collaboration “Under Pressure” would be released in April. But an entire month passed before Dre dismissed the critically panned track as “unfinished.”
News emerged that Dre was working with Game in addition to the Diplomats as well as Eminem and Justin Bieber, but so far, no audio proof has materialized. Now with roughly six weeks left in the calendar year, Director Joseph Kahn, says he is involved with Dr. Dre on some type of video effort.
Prepping DR. DRE. Hey Interscope, do you think there will be any BEATS headphones in this video?
In addition to the motion picture, Torque, Kahn has directed music videos for 50 Cent (“Ayo Technology”), Wu-Tang Clan (“Gravel Pit”), and U2 (“Elevation”). The Dr. Dre/Diplomats collaboration is the only of the aforementioned projects to furnish video proof of a song being completed, so it is unclear exactly what Kahn will direct. So far, the only videos Dre has appeared in this year have been promotional spots and commercials for Dr. Pepper and his Beats headphones and laptop series.
@PerezHilton “Beats by Dre.” Not getting past this one.
