Most hip-hop fans thought Dr.Dre wasn’t gonna make the album “Detox” come to life. Well according to ESPN reporter Chris Haynes, there is hope that the long-waited album may one day see a release.
I asked Dr. Dre if Detox is permanently shelved and he replied, “I’m working on a couple songs right now. We’ll see.”

Based on this quote from Dre, there seems to be a 50/50 chance of the album coming out. “Detox” has been in the works since 2002. Dre said in the HBO series, “The Defiant Ones,” that he closed the door on the idea and moved on. We heard some music from him a couple of years ago, but not to an extent of what’s happening in the hip-hop world. The only thing anyone knows now is that the 52-year-old is still working in the studio. He’s doing work and who knows if Dre will make news this year on the album’s release date.
