During an interview with Tim Westwood, rapper Snoop Dogg gave some interesting insight on why he believes thereís been such a delay in releasing Dr. Dreís Detox album. Snoop explained that the main problem is the type of environment Dreís creating his music in.
ďItís a formula. Like I was trying to explain to you earlier when we made records in the past it was an environment, an atmosphere. It was always girls,Ē Snoop explained. ďIt was always parties. It was always the right atmosphere to create that kind of album that sounds like the albums that youíve heard in the past. If thereís not that atmosphere you canít create that kind of album. So thatís whatís happening right now. The songs donít match the atmosphere and the atmosphere donít match the songs.Ē
Snoop went on to explain that due to his perfectionist side Dr. Dre is unlikely to release anything until he feels that itís close to perfect.
ďWhat weíre accustomed to hearing from Dr. Dre is the brand new, next best everything and from right now people not getting that. He knows that,Ē said Snoop. ďSo heís a perfectionist and until he gets that heís not gonna release it cause he doesnít want the scrutiny of people saying ĎI waited this long for that?í Itís like when I wait this long I better get that and that.Ē
Snoop also shed some light on the fact that Dr. Dre may not be surrounding himself with the right people when it comes to making his album. He also shared that he feels like he and D.O.C. need to be a part of Detox in order for it to work.
ďIímma say this and I donít know if itís gonna ruffle any feathers. I just think the wrong people is in the environment. When he made records that were hit records in the past: D.O.C., Snoop Dogg, RBX, Kurupt,Ē said the rapper. ďItís like itís pieces thatís not there that need to be there. And Iíll say D.O.C. and Snoop Dogg is the backbone. When you take those two equations and you take them out of the equation itís not gonna work. You need to put them two back into the situation and let us mastermind and head the project like we did The Chronic in 2001. Thatís whatís missing.Ē
