article from usatoday.com:

The wait for Detox is almost over. Dr. Dre says his long-anticipated third solo album is starting to take shape in the studio and could arrive before the end of the year.

"I'm just now over the last couple of months starting to feel that it's going to be right and it's something I can be proud of, and everybody is going to love it," says Dr. Dre (aka Andre Young). "In a perfect world, I'm shooting for a November or December release."


If that happens, it will come nine years after his six-times-platinum 2001, which was itself a long-awaited follow-up to his revered 1992 debut, The Chronic That album's bass-fueled G Funk sound dominated rap for years and propelled Snoop Dogg to superstardom. Both albums raised the bar for hip-hop production values.

"I've never set out to do that," says Dre, 43. "I just make the music feel the way I want it to feel and I don't put it out until I'm totally happy with it. Then it does what it does."

Expectations for the album are high, thanks to Dre's pedigree and perfectionist reputation, says Chuck Creekmur, co-founder of the music news site allhiphop.com.

"He's a master of crafting a complete album, which is rare these days with everything being singles-driven," Creekmur says. "We've been waiting on this almost a decade, and that ridiculous level of anticipation will translate saleswise. It would be on par with Lil Wayne (whose Tha Carter III recently sold 1 million copies its first week out), if not more."

Detox has been the subject of speculation since Dre first hinted at the project in 2002. He has been working on the album, which will be released on his Aftermath/Interscope Records label, on and off for four years. He says he has assembled a new crew of musicians, and the beats will be heavily driven by live drums. "We have an entirely new thing going with the drums that's incredible, and we're still developing that." All "the usual suspects" will make guest appearances, including Nas, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne.

As long as the wait for the upcoming album has been, Dre says it'll be even longer before there's another one. "I'm going to put this record out, promote it, tour and then become a hermit. I'm going to stay in the studio and produce."

But he says he isn't interested in producing albums for established artists. Dre, who previously helped launch Eminem and 50 Cent, says his goal is to find who's next.

"All I want to do is sit in the studio with that person for a year and try to create another masterpiece."

This article is ** BULLSHIT **. Andre is just talking now to promote his stupid fucking headphones. Dre is a steroid poisoned asshole (Joell Ortiz anyone?) but he's not dumb, and he's used to playing niggas; now add USA Today to the list.

I'll bet 100 pairs Andre Young Headphones this shit doesn't come out in 2008; takers?

Looks like once again he's gonna take hip hop production to another level just like he did with Chronic 2001.

And for all of you that say this should be a strictly west coast album...what about Eminem? He ain't from the west coast and he spit FIREEE on Chronic 2001

I'm actually not expecting Detox so hard... If it dropped in 2005 I'd love it, but Dre switched up whole style since and I don't like it. Anyway, we'll see, maybe I'll be surprised in the end.

i like wayne but he is a good/decent at best...thats it, his lyrics are also pretty mediocre

hes extremely overated and he has made some wack music. Lollipop is straight up trash. Thats not hip hop and theres no excuse for that bullshit.

in more relevance to this thread its good to hear the album is that much closer

I said I like Wayne. But you act like hes the best thing ever...I've witnessed this in multiple threads. Hes decent at best and his lyrics are mediocre sometimes even completely wack.

Hes overrated and theres 378432987432987432987432 other mcs out there that are better

So what else do you call someone who doesnt like the fact a nigga from Hollygrove N.O has made it and just sold 2mil CD's, doubling Usher who released in the same week?

Theres only one word for it. Hater.

If Wayne rapped the same but sold 5,000 copies of his album and had lyrics about the phaerohs and stained glass windows, you would love him.

Edgar Erebus
07-23-2008, 07:14 PM

In response to Ghostlaced:

I don't like the pop aspect of some of his music and I find his lyrics ranging from decent to mediocre to crap. Thats the only problem I have with him. Hes got some good songs, but also alot of bad ones. And you need to get off that sales bullshit cuz it doesn't mean anything. I dont hate him, I like him. I just hate how damn overrated people make him out to be and how much attention he gets when theres so many more talented artists out there that don't get to shine like that.

I can partially agree with that. Sometimes he flows well, sometimes its horribly off time and awkwardly annoying

Edit: Sometimes he flows well enough* Still nothing special

idk how anyone can say sales dont matter. Nas just did 182k in his first week. Weezy did 1.1mil in his first week. Sales matter. The nation has spoken. They choose Weezy for rap president.


weezy got ill flow. even clipse said in their diss record "lil nigga flow/but his metaphors boring/dont make me have to kill baby like abortion/"

This country is full of sheep and morons. No wonder Mc Hammer sold millions of records too, and sorry Ghostlaced, but gimmicky shit sells. I won't spend my money on trash, so I won't be purchasing any of his garbage. You love him and that's great, maybe you can felate him after one of his shows, I'm sure his boyfriend Baby would love to watch that. Oh, and you are a dickrider. Every time someone says anything about your boy you quickly jump to his defense.
Dre is just as weak for thinking this album is going to have the same effect as the Chronic. I loved the Chronic, like the Aftermath album, fell asleep during the Chronic 2001 and I am really not to intrested in this new SHIT.

if its good i cant complain, but if he fails its gonna do alot of damage and piss alot of people off

and yes i would prefer to see him off the album and more west coast artists.

Edgar Erebus
07-24-2008, 03:16 PM
As for West Coast, "Some L.A. Niggaz II" would perfectly do for me, as Dre ain't produced shit for a West Coast rapper since Documentary.

Lil Wayne is almost certain to be on there; nowadays it's damn hard to find any bigger-budget album without Lil Wayne. But he'd really better come with "Sky's the Limit" and not "Barry Bonds", in order to add up to an album and not ruin it.

He isnt "the best rapper alive" (btw, that song is amazing)...but he is different, which is what people want i guess
