57 seconds into the video Bishop mentinds the 12 track/step cocnept of the album. For those that don't know, this was a concept of Dre's in 2002 - sort of a hip hop music/movie style. Focus was on life through the eyes of a Hitman.
Well this is the 12 step concept - each step would be a track, but all blended together. Below is part fo an old article (2002) of this concept.
"I had to come up with something different but still keep it hardcore, so what I decided to do was make my album one story about one person and just do the record through a character's eyes," Dre said. "And everybody that appears on my album is going to be a character, so it's basically going to be a hip-hop musical."
Detox's story line will chronicle the life of a hit man, describing "what he goes through and how he lives his life," said Dre, who played a trigger-eager crooked cop in "Training Day." "[It's] about his family and how he makes a living."
