Apperantly a rough draft of the first "Detox" (Dr. Dre's coming album) single has been leaked by someone at Aftermath although Dre doesn't appear at all. The track is performed by Prophet and called "It's Like That", rumors says Dre will be using the same lyrics to record over this beat. Download the MP3 of it here.

This info is from HipHopDX.com:
"Dr. Dre’s oft—and to many, indefinitely—delayed Detox album may have finally had some concrete material leaked this week, courtesy of an Aftermath/Interscope insider.

Web sites and blogs like 2DopeBoyz have circulated the song, “It’s Like That,” and pegging it as the soon-to-be buzz single for the album. While the song is co-produced by Dr. Dre and Atlanta producer WallStreet, the west coast icon himself isn’t rapping on it: instead, the rhyming is done by an emcee named Prophet. According to 2DB, the song is a rough draft of sorts, created for Dre to study before he records it himself.

An excerpt of the email from the employee:
“Recently, I received some records submitted for Detox which were written by an artist by the name of Prophet. We didn’t end up keeping any of them but Dre liked his style of writing and the production so he wanted me to fly him and the producer WallStreet out. Once they arrived everyone got acquainted and started working. WallStreet pulled up a sample and started crafting the drums as Prophet who funny enough is a reggae/hiphop artist started writing the rap. The chemistry in the room was amazing. Dre walked in and heard the track and the first thing he said was we need to replay the sample and we’ll have a buzz single for Detox. Dre got on the boards and started to get more involved with the production. He started to EQ WallStreet’s drums making them sound 10 times bigger. He had the guitar and strings played over and the finish product of the track was CLASSIC Dre. Prophet continued to write the record and then laid his vocals to the record so Dre could learn the song. I expect Dre to lay his vocals down in the next day or so. It will be extremely hard if not impossible to get the song because no one has access to the files once Dre records to it. For now, all I have is the version with Prophet’s vocals on it.”

Detox would be Dre's first solo project since 2001, which featured classics such as the "Forgot About Dre," "Still D.R.E.," and "XXplosive." While the album has been touted for years, complete with emcees and producers such as JR Rotem, Hi-Tek and others reporting working on it in interviews and Dre himself shouting out the album on The Game's 2005 debut The Documentary, the album hasn't had as much as a single during the entire time. Many Hip Hop heads have given up the album to "urban legend" status.

Stay tuned to HipHopDX for any updates."
