Compton emcee, Kendrick Lamar’s rise within Los Angeles Rap has been one to watch in recent times. Running from obscurity to running with the elite veterans of left coast Hip Hop, Kendrick Lamar has been getting co-signs left and right. One of those co-signs came from Dr. Dre. The Good Doc didn’t just see the potential in him; he also made him a part of the Detox project, according to several sources. In a recent interview with The Masked Gorilla, Kendrick spoke about his relationship with Dre and said that Detox is basically done. 

“Paul Rosenberg, Eminem’s manager, reached out to Dr. Dre and said, ‘This kid on the net, right now, is killing it. He has a crazy sound, a nice sound. You should mess with him.’

From there, Dre’s attention was grabbed. The Compton vet quickly reached out to the Compton up-and-comer and their relationship has grown from that day forward. 

“Dre heard me that minute and got in contact with my peoples the next day. It’s been on since. We’ve been trying to finish up this project, Detox. Well, it is basically [done].” 

When pressed for more details, Kendrick was quick to say he couldn’t divulge too much information on the project. 

“I’m not going to give no time, no dates. Everybody looking for dates. I’ll say soon.”
