More details have emerged pertaining to Dr. Dre’s Detox, though fans have been skeptical about its release for years. The album, which originally began to take form in 2002 has undergone several changes, many release dates, years of anticipation and years of criticism. Dr. Dre has even faced criticism from his longtime collaborators Eminem (most notably on one of the album’s singles “I Need a Doctor“) and Snoop Dogg, who said Dre is surrounding himself with the wrong people.
Although many have said the album was close to being released for years, Kendrick Lamar most recently announced this news again. According to Lamar, the album is “basically done” and “getting mixed.” Snoop Dogg also shared in the sentiments and it seems he is a greater part of the process now.
In a recent video, Snoop Dogg joined forces with DJ Quik, Battlecat, The D.O.C. and others teamed up to create four songs for Dr. Dre’s Detox. According to Snoop, two of those songs would be solo cuts for Dre while the other two would be collaborations between Snoop and Dre. Two videos were released, both featuring all of these artists collectively working on the project and discussing the need to release quality work. The video footage can be seen below.
