In case you were expecting Detox this year, think again. In this excerpt from Dre’s Q&A in the March issue of SLAM, the album’s pushed back until 2011. The myth lives on.

    Fuck off. He says this same shit every year. “In a year or so”. Next year he’ll be saying the same…

    I’m done with Dre

  • http://www.mikedreamsmusic.com Mike Dreams

    FREAKING FAIL.

    Next year as in 2011? #CmonSon.

    He might as well just scrap this whole idea and move #OnToTheNextOne.

    This has been like the most anticipated album that’s coming out Neveruary 32nd, along with Kanye’s Pastelle clothing line and another Fugees album.

  • NEGRO PLEASE

    I’m tellin ya’ll this album is officially a unicorn…Talked about heavy, but never seen. But how about just about every artist says they’ve done something with Dre for the Detox. Either they are doing songs and Dre is scrappin em cause he’s not feelin em anymore, or this album is gonna be 4 disks long

  • http://hipSNEAK.com Mateo

    I’m done with hearing about Dre & his bullshit…He’s about to be 50. What the fuck is he waiting for? Just throw it in the trash.

  • p. dom

    man, at this point, i don’t give a fuck anymore. i get that dre is a perfectionist, but this is that bullshit right here. i guess it’s more money in selling those headphones than completing his album.

  • Upset

    @thedigitalhitlist Chronic 2001 was released in ’99. Been over 10 years now! I’m done Dre!

  • Dashing

    @JayFingers.

    I know it’s a joke but you’re definitely right on about half of those happening before Detox.

  • true stories

    RELAPSE ALL THE WAY BITCH

    but im loooking forward to the detrox.
    i guess. 2011 is the year… hopefully

  • leosash

    Gotta keep pushin’ the dates back, because by the time he finished one track, the industry has moved on. When it comes out I’ll listen, but it ain’t no big deal.

  • HIP-HOP IS DEAD

    Fuckouttahere Dre. If it does drop i’m downloading it just because.

  • My Nig Hussle

    might as well push it back to 12/15/ 2012 make it 20 years after the first one

  • Toya

    Is anyone really shocked with that response? That’s been his response since Chronic 2001.

  • JayJay

    @DJ Pain….you shoulda BEEN done with Dre….take everybody rap album that’s out now and combine them put them over all the beats that were on 2001 and that’s Detox ladies and gents…PEACE!!

  • yaboitone

    IM GOING TO START THIS ARGUMENT EARLY:

    The album will end up being “just ok” but because of ALLLLLLLLL the anticipation people will treat it like the holy grail and claim it to be much better than it actually is.

  • ayoooo

    No doubt that Dre is the biggest innovator in hip-hop, production wise. However, an album can only be so good. It doesn’t take that long to make an album. Like, he want’s it perfect, but there’s only a certain limit to go above any beyond…. This record ain’t coming out.

    Dre is always in the studio because that’s his passion. This nigga will be in the studio when he’s 80 years old. That’s his life. He doesn’t care about Detox as much as the people do. Lack of motivation and you get wack shit. High standered artists won’t put out wack shit. So he’s jamming out every day.

  • Theloneus

    LMFAO Co-sign Zach!

  • cory

    I’m done. waiting for detox #weoffthat

  • http://www.d12world.com Jimmy

    Seriously man I know this site has something to do with Paul Rosenberg. Man please tell Dre to get fucked. Now I can see why 2Pac dissed the fuck out of him saying he never got anything done, stop talking about Pac like he actually liked you dude. 10+ years of bullshitting your own fans, I remember when this was gonna be a “hip hop musical” telling the story of a hitman or something, I heard he was getting piano lessons or some shit and doing some crazy classical shit, I heard so many artists say they worked on this, and we get nothing. And dude fucking complains when people leak shit? Dude had fucking Rakim, Busta, Bishop, Joell fucking list goes on and he couldn’t even release anything. All we got is 3 wack ass 50 Cent albums and a million broken promises. Now you want me to spend a shit load of money on your shitty as corny headphones with nothing to listen to on them? Get the fuck out, there’s better headphones out there for less money, talking about how you wish you’d had them when you were younger? Shut the fuck up man. Dre you suck, Pac was right, I’m fucking glad Just Blaze is producing most of Relapse 2, I hope Dre ain’t even on there now. Aint even gonna listen to 2001 anymore, and he fucking sucks on the recent Eminem tracks he’s on, fucking ruins them. Stop lying to people Dre and just go live in a fucking retirement home and tell your stories there. Fuck a Dr. Dre!

  • Da Business

    ^^^^
    damn Jimmy, tell ‘em y u mad. lol.

    I hear u tho, Dre this is comin’ from a fan…STOP w/ the BULLSHIT!!!!

    Like most of u said, this shit has gone on 4 too long. It’s been 11 yrs…c’mon son!!!

  • t-dub

    we will probably die before we can even hear the shit

  • Wamp Wamp

    i haven’t been surprised by a Dre beat since a lonnnnng time so i’m not surprise when everytime he says i’m not ready. He says i’m working on other project blablabla but the beats he put on BISD and relapse were average..
    I think Dre doesn’t want to put out “Detox” if it’s not better or equal to “Chronic 2001″ so there are not to many chances that it will come out soon or maybe never

  • Wanker Man

    LMMFAO @ Jimmy! That ish was the funniest post I’ve read so far on this site!

  • Gay-Z

    FUCK DR DRE… NOBODY BELIEVE YOUR BULLSHIT ANYMORE THIS SHIT AINT COMING OUT IN 2021 NEVER MIND 2011. FUCK DRE BITCHES

  • Drucifer

    Eventually, Dre is gonna have to drop it, or else your gonne hear about him paying Interscope alot of money………..Thats what stat quo said in an interview last year anyway…..

    Legends dont move for anybody but themselves………I’m pissed to, but If a “Detox” cd hits shelves in 2012, I’ll still be the first one to cop it……..Cause no matter how long it takes, when it does hit I know it will be crazy

  • Interscope Employee

    FUCK THAT!!! I know im part of the Interscope team, but shit had me pissed (I aint said shit tho lol) when the VP told us at the meeting Detox aint coming out this year

    They said RELAPSE 2 is a priority for the label, to make sure Eminem keeps Interscope alive in the Hip Hop Department (since 50 had some trouble and shit with BISD)

    Anyway, fuck Detox. It’ll never come out lol

  • Interscope Employee

    @ Jimmy ; LMAOOOOOOOO!!!! shit had me rolling and shit hahaha FUNNY

  • bLUEPRINTs

    definite download at this point, straght bullshit!

  • HATERZGETFUCKED

    All you haters need to fuck off. You are dissing the godfather of rap. Show some fucking respect because if it wasnt for Dre we wouldnt have rap music. The man has single handidly done more for rap than anyone in the industry. If it wasnt for Dre we wouldnt have had NWA, no Ice Cube, No Snoop, No Eminem, should i go on. I mean really the man is the greatest and everyone wants to work with him. Dre is more interested in helping the up and comers make it and working with them. He has proven himself what have all of you done for the rap industry. Not a GODDAMN THING. So all of you need to just eat a dick and shut up.

  • Haven

    @haterzgetfucked. I agree with u I think everybody is caught in the emothions and tired of being turned down again on waiting for the album , yea if no Dre No Eminem wouldn’t have those sick and catchy beats or snoop dogg to and cube helped 50 PAC nwa and etc

  • http://Kanyelive.com Comedyjunkie06

    How is dre helping the up and comers? Yeah he helped establish artists 10 years ago like eminem and snoop and more but ever since then he has literally stopped putting out anyone new. And we’ve been waiting for this forever

    All I have to say is i cannot wait for relapse 2 it shld be nuts. But it Better drop this year

  • D-Lon

    Fuck this Bullshit Dr. Dre… you dont wanna release that fuckin album just say it nikka.. instead of leaving nikkaz believin in ur OLD ASS… FUCK THIS SHIT… i wont cop that album no more… even if its released tomorrow

  • toshay

    to me, it feels like detox has already came out along time ago and its an old album, Fuck DRE, this guy is full of shit, it takes him 10 fucking years to make an album”??? what the fuck he’s inventing? a cure for AIDS?

  • james bond

    lmao @ all the comments….shits hilarious…. Dre is/isn’t a bunch of a crap. Let me tell you why. He IS because he acts like his ‘albums’ are just so fuckin’ incredible. To me (IMO), he creates lack-luster albums that get full praise because he’s “Dr.DRE”….like, who gives a fuck *looks around*.
    Eminem, Snoop, DOC, Dogg Pound (by way of Snoop), Warren G, Nate Dogg … he put <—those guys on and a few more, but those are the most known to date. he did not, REPEAT, DID NOT! put out Pac, who was already a settled artist by '95-'96 when him and Dre actually started working together, and then Johnnie was really Pac's 'go-to' producer. Eazy E <–didn't need Dre, he acquired Dre. Cube Detox DELAY > Headphones > Another Detox DELAY > Laptop > New color headphones > Indefinte DELAY…… fuck back, I’m with the upset clan…and not because I’ma fan, but gotdamn, put out some fuckin’ music…WE FUCKIN’ NEED IT!

  • james bond

  • D

    @ least we got it out the way early in the year.

    read on wiki Dre sold Jimmy controlling share of Aftermath around 99-00, thats why no artist ever come out.

    Dre isn’t as savvy/rich as we all think, he does what he’s told

  • James

    Don’t you guys get it? DETOX is what you do when you stop being a drug junkie. Dre has said this album won’t be about whores and drugs. And so…. the album is waiting ON YOU. Once YOU stop being a damn junkie, he’ll release the album.

  • Planb

    Man fuck it I don’t even wanna hear da shit no more

  • Jimmy

    FAO Interscope employee! Glad you liked it, how can I get in touch with you? Would love to talk to you.

  • IrelandRepresents

    Dre, stick the fucking album up ur arse! Gluebag!!!

  • http://mother.com your fucking mother

    I bet the album is bullshit

  • henry

    keep that detox shit to yourself nigga.

  • the truth be told

    GIVE THE FUCKIN GUY A BREAK! HE’ S GOTTA GET ALL HIS GHOST WRITERS TOGETHER, THEN HE NEEDS TO HOOK UP WITH HIS GHOST PRODUCERS, THEN THE DUDES NEED TO COME IN AND SHOW HIM HOW TO SPIT IT. ITS A LOT OF WORK SO OF COURSE ITS GONNA TAKE 10 TO 15 YEARS. BE PATIENT.

  • BrooklynRaw

    He prob not satified with his material

  • coki

    It seemed like this shit would finally materialize now that Relapse 2 is on the horizon and 50 Cent’s album is already done. It’s the fact the new year just started and he nonchalantly dismissed Detox for the next twelve months that rightfully pisses people off.

    The fact is Dre doesn’t really give a shit about Detox the way you think. To him it’s just about his legacy. He probably has a library of finished, decent tracks he could call Detox and drop it next month but that’s not what it’s about. He’s only going to release it when he gives a shit about it and simply feels like it’s time to get it out. The fact he doesn’t even write his own shit and he’s a notorious perfectionist makes this seem really artificial, because if this was truly his own album we would’ve heard this long ago. He’s simply making it to make the best hip-hop album made using the talents of everyone else with his name on it. That’s why it’s going to take a decade to hear it. Right now he’s doing his work producing tracks and doing what he always did, and Detox is nothing but an afterthought in the back of his head. He’s taking his time because he can.

    You’ll hear this shit when Dre feels like it. He doesn’t care if people are waiting for this year after year because in the end, Detox is going to be how he wants when he wants it, and Dre only cares about what he thinks. I think that’s been proven. Just stop waiting for it and have no expectations because this dude doesn’t care about it nearly enough as we do.

  • Sam

    Fair enough its going to be another year, but look at Dre 2001 whether you like rap or not everyone has that album “ITS A CLASSIC”, so hes under alot of pressure to make detox bigger and better than 2001 (If thats possible).

    Plus Dre`s gone back with The Game for his R.E.D Album which people thought would never happen again, also few of Dres Detox beats were put on The Documentry album when that was produced.

    P.S
    Comment on James Comment – He smokes like a ounce of Weed a Day……

  • BIGBootieHOES :)

    fuck dre’s detox and fuck dre

  • vik

    he’s going to release it when all the hype dies down, when noones expecting it. If he does it now it will be a big let down.

  • like

    fuck it, i dont care about detox, all i want is dre to do one dope song every month, either just release it or on someone elses album. That would keep me satisfied.

  • rick

    Dr. Dre’s detox is not coming out,

  • rick

    He’s only teasing people with Dr. Pepper commercials and shit like that. He say’s the album is coming out 2010, It’s all bullshit already, He should atleast put out some Detox throw away tracks to keep us happy. I guess I’m stuck listening to Dr. Dre’s Chronic 2001

  • Suan

    Yeah seriously man. Dr. Dre says it will be done at the end of 2009 and we can hear it next year. I understand this guy is a perfectionist but man this ridiculous. I know dre’s supposed to release a single called intervention, or bishop lamont’s You ain’t fresh, anyhow I’m tired of waiting for detox another fuckin year of waiting, It takes 10 fuckin years to make 1 album and i highly doubt that Detox will be any better then chronic 2001 cause Dre needs Jay-z, of course then he comes up with another crappy dr pepper commercial.I think i’m done waiting fuck detox I’m waiting for R.E.D. Album. Dre’s aging anyways rename it to BOTOX.

  • Suan

    WEST COAST IS DEAD, HIP HOP IS DEAD, and dr dre wont release detox till 2012

  • Suan

    Dr. Dre is king of the West Coast and is the only living legend to who has capacity to create, and perfect his beats and no one does it better than he does. No one’s hating on the doctor, though he likes to make his fans wait, I just hope that his next and final upcoming album will be even better than his Chronic 2001, I continue to support the doc. and to vancouvers Bc’s comments the only real king of hip hop will forever be Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. :)

  • sdfagadfg

    iv been through puberty, 3 relationships, 2 years in jail and graduated and the album still aint out.

  • Keelo
