Dr. Dre Might Release "Detox" After All
publish date: 2018-01-09
Oakland, CA – Dr. Dre has been working on the nearly mythical Detox album since 2002. In an episode of the HBO series The Defiant Ones, the Beats Electronics mastermind essentially deaded the possibility of it ever coming out. But that could change.
During a recent Golden State Warriors practice, Dre and his business partner Jimmy Iovine were spotted by EPSN's Chris Haynes.
Haynes reportedly asked if Detox would ever see the light of day.
Dre replied, 'I'm working on a couple songs right now. We'll see.'

In 2014, producer Dewaun Parker said Dre scrapped the project in favor of another album, while the L.A. Weekly actually detailed the album's storied history in 2015.
In the aforementioned The Defiant Ones episode, which aired last July, Dre said, 'I never had any connection with [Detox], it didn't work.'
He added, 'I'm never gonna do that again.'
Several leaks from the project have surfaced over the years but only time will tell if the actual full length edition will become a reality.
