In promotion of last week’s BET Awards [click here to read] Snoop Dogg spoke to Los Angeles radio mainstay Big Boy, and his Neighborhood Show about a number of upcoming things.
Presently working his Willie Nelson-assisted, Everlast-produced single “My Medicine” [click to view] to radio and video, Snoop Dogg shocked some when he spoke about mentor Dr. Dre‘s long anticipated album Detox.
“That record is real it’s coming,” Snoop Dogg said. “You know me, I was
starting to doubt it myself and then I went up there and [Dr. Dre]
played so much music for me it knocked my head off.“
The quote also leads many to question whether Snoop, Dre‘s most successful musical protege, besides Eminem, will be appearing on Detox if he merely heard it. In 1999, Snoop Dogg appeared on three songs from Dr. Dre‘s last album, 2001. Two of those appearances, “Still D.R.E.” and “Next Episode” would be singles.
Snoop also added that Dr. Dre would be executive producing the Long Beach icon’s next album. The last Snoop Dogg album that Dr. Dre has served in an executive role on was Doggstyle, Snoop‘s critically acclaimed 1993 debut.
