DJ Khalil, who produced Dr. Dre’s single “Kush” featuring Akon and Snoop Dogg, claims that Detox is almost completed. Speaking with Billboard.com, the beatsmith explained that finishing the album is the West Coast veteran’s top priority.
“Dre’s album is definitely the most important thing right now, because he is definitely in the final stretch,” says Khalil. “He has the record going, but I’m sure he thinks there are pieces missing still. Until he finds those pieces, maybe he’s not comfortable putting it out yet.”
Though he has trouble describing the sound of the LP, he claims it’s forward-thinking. “It’s definitely a West Coast sound — more futuristic West Coast sound — at least from what I’ve turned in,” he says. “I don’t know what he’s keeping, though.”
