Published Jul 24, 2008Detox, the long-delayed new album from hip-hop production wizard Dr. Dre, may finally hit stores this winter after a four-year wait. Promising a hard-hitting list of guest rappers, including Lil Wayne, Jay-Z and Nas, the record sounds as if it could very well live up to its predecessors, 1992s G-Funk classic and Snoop Dogg-career-launcher The Chronic and 1999s futuristically titled 2001.
"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," Dre told USA Today. "In a perfect world, I'm shooting for a November or December release."
Snoop Dogg recently offered a glimpse into the album, stating, "You know me, I was starting to doubt it myself and then I went up in there and he played so much music for me it knocked my head off. I see what he got them waiting for, it's on and poppin'. He got records, he got heat.
Following the release of Detox, Dre has said he would like to hole up in the studio with an up-and-coming rapper. "All I want to do is sit in the studio with that person for a year and try to create another masterpiece."
