Dr Dre - Detox Hip Hop's Music's best kept secret
Up to the MINUTE news & rumours of Dr Dreand his highly anticipated album.
A blog by Uzee
oh yeah, detooooox, coahella gonna be wicked
@bwash I couldn't agree more once we get to April we will see how things come along. Remember under pressure rumor came out of no where around April and even people say it could be released at coachella(not saying it will be released there.)But Dr Dre should intentions last year of releasing Detox on 4/20 but never happened(just blaze video)So April will be special
@ PlugIn,I really respect the material you write on this blog, and you are usually spot-on, but you are absolutely wrong about this. Coachella is the biggest music festival in the United States. HEADLINING Coachella is a HUGE fucking deal, not even close to being equatable to rapping with Snoop in Singapore at some award show that nobody gives a fuck about.The Coachella headlining gig gets extreme media attention, and as opposed to what you wrote in your post -- is typically reserved for the most relevant artists, not old has-beens (for instance, Kanye West headlined last year).I am by no means saying that this is concrete proof that we will be seeing Detox soon. But Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and Andrea Bocelli could all collectively see that this is an ENORMOUS strategic move by Dre to headline such an important festival. The guy has been in hiding for a decade then randomly decides to headline the biggest and most relevant tour??? Why would he do so solely to hawk headphones to a clientele that is already well aware (and probably own) the product???The answer is that that is not the reason. Dre is either attempting to set the stage for his comeback (by getting from behind the boards and in front of the American public for once), or he will be actually touring in support of a released single. I think its a pipedream to think Detox will have already been dropped by April, but it surely seems realistic that we may see a single around that time that is promoted by these huge headlining shows...Bwash
Damn my nugga dre is performing in time for 4/20Shit ima go, I live in Lakewood ain't far from this shitI'm lucky AF I just need to know how much the tickets are!??
@plugin - did you ever noticed they are the HEADLINE of the event your really think if dr dre was gonna promote his line of headphones, i doubt he would be a headline for coachella. Look at kendrick lamar's name its not even on top and he has enough material to perform for coachella.its around 4/20 i know dre has to put something buy then even if its a lil mixtape that would be great
TBH Dre and Snoop doing Coachella doesn't mean a lot since they just did a show together in Singapore and last year at a Grammy after party. It's not like this is a rare occasion. It could mean Detox is on the horizon this year, before or after Coachella, but if Dre is looking to get his name out there to hustle his headphones, which for now has been the entire reason he's given interviews, traveled, and done mad promo appearances he's never done before, Coachella is the best place to do it anyway. I don't want to shit on anyone's party but to me there's no good reason to get your hopes up because doing Coachella doesn't automatically mean he has new material. Then again if it means Detox is coming by then, hell yes, but until then just wait and see and don't expect anything. God knows almost every big headliner that plays at Coachella is an old/legendary act anyway, you know? Fits right in and they don't necessarily put out new material. No reason to believe Dre is any different just because.BTW this Tom guy making claims only AFTER this becomes public knowledge makes me laugh. Seriously, it's getting really old. These guys faking this insider info and making vague ass predictions never actually predict these things BEFORE we already know, you know why? Because they would actually have to know something. It's really easy to take credit for having the inner circle info after the entire world hears it.For real though, just stop it. If someone wants to make claims like this dude, say something concrete that will only prove you wrong or prove you right immediately. If you can't do it, then don't do it, and save Uzee and the rest of us the trouble because this bullshit hijacks the comments. When these dudes try to take credit making these "announcements" and it doesn't come true, they'll just say "shit changed at the last minute, that's Dre for you" or just disappear and come back as someone else. Anything other than "yo this shit is happening next week for sure and here's proof" = we don't care. You're wrong and lying until you prove yourself right first, period. The end.
dr dre your are my savior!!!!
Holy jesus fucking christ. Just got a boner.Plugin - i'll be at coachella most likely. I hope I am standing in the audience and some phenomonal song comes on. I will definitely cry.Tom h- you make me laugh.And on a side note.. No one ever brings up good ole hittman from 2001. yeh, I know he has a cheap ass label goin on somewhere but thats wack. I thought he was so unique in style. still dont get how he is completely unknown and vanished immediately after 2001. Anyone think it would be dope to have him on detox? P.s. Xzibit will be on detox he tweeted it once.. Dope
DRE AND SNOOP AT COACHELLA 2012!!! This is the most conclusive evidence that we have seen yet that Detox actually may be coming -- and that Tom H. may have actually been speaking truth.There is absolutely NO FUCKING REASON for Dre to headline the nation's biggest music festival if he didn't have new music on the immediate horizon. Think about it, this is a guy who has been a legend for the past two decades, but hasn't chosen to perform in the last decade. He wouldn't just choose to do that for no reason. Even selling headphones isn't really a plausible excuse, most of the fans at Coachella are in it for the music and would be outraged at a promotional concert based around Beats by Dre.Also, it is more likely that any promotional type concerts would be performed somewhere overseas -- as an effort to increase Dre's foreign visibility. Absolutely no one going to Coachella is going to need to be reminded that Dre sells headphones, everyone already knows. I hate to get overexcited and let down once again, but this is huge news.Bwash
i hope dr.dre gets hit with a bottle the second he walks out and cancels the rest of the gigs. gay ass andre young is no longer a hip hop artist so why is a headphone hustler booking shows? drop detox then do shows. otherwise stay hidden in the gym you big goofy middle aged muscled up pussy. andre young hasn't contributed anything to rap in over 10 years but he's still taking from it. fat cat syndrome to the max. p.s. dr.dre and jimmy iovine have a gay relationship that makes their wives jealous
@MikeYou are the first guy that made me smile today. Than you.@PluginI agree; the show does not indicate that Dre is actually promoting Detox. The guy made hype last year with INAD, Kush and has been featured in two mixtapes already so I think he is contributing and is definately being present just not in same quantity we desire. I think people like Mike are so hungry and thirsty for Dre that they dont even notice the few new songs he made.In South Africa at the H20 event, as soon as the DJ dropped Kush, people went crazy, then the DJ dropped Still Dre- people automatically went high. Awsome stuff.The problem is 1. Do you still hear Kush and INAD being played on the radio - wherever you are? No2. The beat on the Chrysler Add, wow - if he realsed that , do you think it would still be played. Hell yeah - that beat is addictive, different and cool. 3. Kush was an avg beat, avg lyrics, nothing of substance really. So thats why the flame just died. INAD. Same thing, but it appealed more to the generation Eminem is targeting, not Dre. It was those Rihanna Eminem songs. Girls love that sh!t.4. Dre is not looking for average, we are rushing him cos we dont get ish from current music, but he will only release once he gets something that even us will be proud of. The true fans. Legendary music like chronic 2001, Marshal Mathers LP, etc. Do you really want Kush to be on Detx. noooooo.5. Dre must release another hot track that will get your granny shaking her boom boom and trust me - he will be on the right track. And that will be the signature of Detox.
Imo if he ain't released at least a single for detox by April i can't see it ever coming out
Nice to see Kendrick on line-up. I think there's a bigger chance that Kendrick will be performing a song from his upcoming album than Dre is doing one from Detox. On the other hand there are rumours K-dot is all over Detox..Imagine Snoop Dre and K-dot kicking off Detox then and there.Prolly not, but imma still keep my fingers crossed.Hangover
I know what Coachella is, Bwash, I go every year up until last year. A lot of headliners were old legends who performed because it's the best place to do it and they don't put out new material. The guy from Pink Floyd did a huge ass set (no new material), Rage Against the Machine headlined a big comeback show (no new material), and My Bloody Valentine hit up Coachella during their reunion tour and goddamn man, people have been waiting for new material from them since 1991 (still nothing lol). The thing is, headlining Coachella doesn't equal impending new material because these days they get together to tour, make money, and get their name out than boost projects. Dre and Snoop doing Coachella isn't the same as doing a TV medley in Singapore but my point was that this performance isn't a rare occasion, and the only reason Dre has been coming out doing promotions, doing sets, and everything else has only been to promote Beats. How do you get Dre and Snoop = Detox anyway? They're obviously gonna do their old shit.Then again maybe your hopes are right, Dre is setting up shop for its release, and his performance is going to be on some Detox shit. All I'm saying is it's a mistake to get excited and take anything as "proof" Detox is around the corner this year. So many people over the years has taken this or that to mean Detox is coming and every time they've been burned. It's the way it is and what Dre plans now doesn't even mean anything because who is to say it'll be the plan tomorrow? I just said don't get your hopes up. There's plenty of reasons to hold off on jumping up and down as Detox coming, at least a shitload more than reasons to think there is no doubt whatsoever.
usually tours are to promote an album that has already been released, i didnt check the date of coachella but if it will be a detox performance than surely the album will have to be released before the festival, at least 2months, therefore i think it will just be classic performance promoting beats....sorry
And the fact that it's billed as a dr dre AND snoop dogg performance seems to suggest a classics set, surelyifnew material it would just be billed as Dr Dre
as much as I appreciate Bwash's optimism, I tend to agree with Plugin on this one. There is the slim chance that they could debut some fresh material, guage the audiences reaction to it and then start the detox marketing machine rolling. It would be wise I think to do so because it would generate hella hype, fan vids of the new songs would be plastered all over hiphop blogs and youtube, such promotion without the anticlimax accompanying leaks of studio quality audio which deters sales. But I think the more likely scenario is just the beautiful/drop it like it hot/sweat songs from the Dogg, and Still Dre, Next Episode, Nothing but a g thang routine etc etc. Even still, suppose that detox was in the works for an imminent release, I dont see Dre and Snoop doing this show AND a Detox promo tour following the albums release, thats alot of touring for Dre who shuns the road and limelight for over a decade. But, if my cynicism and consistently dashed hopes for detox are proven wrong and the coachella performance is the catalyst to the albums release, I will gladly eat my words and acquire some Kush to mark the occasion!J-Mil
http://twitter.com/#!/Nelly_Mo/media/slideshow?url=http%3A%2F%2Fyfrog.com%2Fnzkoiicj Dre was in the studio with Nelly last night
Yeah i am not getting my hopes up. Just expect another show with snoop wearing beats. Dont forget Coachella probably contacted Dre's people after watchin their performance in Asia. The hype on the blog was similar when it was announced that they would be performing at Asia and i doubt Dre would perform a new hit. However, there is a certain degree of optimism. The thing that intrests me is that they are headlining on the final day. The last beat you will hear from Coachella 2012 will be from Dr Dre. Another thing is that most of the other artists are promoting new material. Arctic Monkeys, Noel Gallagher,Black Keys, Nero etc. If anything did happen it would be wild! A collaberation with snoop is the norm for any Dre "banger" and would be extra special as it would be performed at the west coast. Only time will tell, however, there has to be something on the horizon if Dre is hoping for a 2012 release. Tom H shut the fuck up!!!
Not trying to get anyone's hope up I'm not reliable no one except Dre themselves is but the stuff I've heard, been following, reading etc. It will possibly be announced within a month or 2 the release date or at least the single will be out. This album version of Detox since he's changed it so many times is finished now it's on Dr. Dre to release it. Kendricks new track for his album is going to be called Compton City With Dre, Kendrick and possibly another guest. And trust me people I can give you a lot of credible information as to why I don't want to post it because none of you will read that much sut
La roux is also i the line up, dre was supposedly sampling some stuff from them. Maybe a live performance for a new single! This is the best shot detox is near!
The problem is it's not "credible" information because there's no reason to think it is. We don't want to read the next nobody on here making claims they can't back up, but if you want to go that way then prove your credibility. You can't have it both ways by blaming us for not giving up info but then do nothing to show you know anything more than I do. Anyone can do what you do, it's nothing special, you're not special, and nobody believes you or cares.
This guy is sooo far from the streets now. Im surprised we look up to him so much sometimes. for dre to do what we expect he has to bring out a new act. not these kendric lamars and other plain people weve seen over and over again. another dumb average act will be the nail in his coffin. He needs to do something no one has ever thought of. Just one more record with snoop, em and some average additional mcs would suck. Famous mcs like jz and them will kill it too. the popularity of his last two projects were directly affected by snoop and em. Dont tell me dre thinks that he can create even half that popularity today, without attaching an original act . Especially in todays atmosphere, where so called real hip hop heads cant even pay their role models for their hard work. Were waiting on dre to do something that will bring structure back to hip hop again. Hes been providing hip hops structure since 87 really. Since hislast effort hip hop wheels are just like tires rolling right off from under a moving carThis project has to be dr dres (thriller). Hes got to show that he does it on purpose. Not by accident. It will solidify his place in history undenyably. The question is, will he be another dumb nigger who gets rich and quits or be a true american hero and provide direction for the young, poor blacks in society that supported his early credibility . They fucking need his cheesy ass. Its not about the west coast coming back ,and all that bs that uneducation hip hop fans think its about, because theyre short sited. Their ideas are what got us where it is today, up shits creek. This is about american culture on a decline worldwide at a time when we need to be at our strongest. the world depends on this man. I wonder if he notices that? Probably not. I know black people and how they are, especially when they get money. I have the answer when his ass is ready 818 626 1715 tony
Plugin your an idiot.J-Mil
Dr Dre will be working with Nelly. SMH
Anyway, Coachella is well known and lots of artists and bands are hot in there ! The Black Keys new album is great, Justice, Hives, SebastiAn, Kendrick Lamar, etc.Too bad i'm living 8000+ km from California
Thanks for explaining why, J-Mil, but I'm sure you're a guy with too much serious business to handle taking up your day."I have the answer when his ass is ready 818 626 1715 tony"I can't believe I read this guy's entire post of horseshit for it to climax with that. I laughed though. Well done, man.
Alright Plugin you asked for it get ready to read all this shit I posted this on another forum so some shit might not relate and I actually have a little more evidence even afer all this but this should do you guys for now if you want more ask. Lol na your like me you know in your own way but have no source or can confirm. I ACTUALLY HAVE SOME SOURCES BUT NO ONE LEGITIMATE JUST POSSIBLE INSIDERS I SAY POSSIBLE cause I CAN'T BE SURE but information I have read plus things I have read from these guys who know somewhat of what's going on because there insiders or know insiders put it together and I think I can tell you the month range it will come out but again I'm not looking to be a troll or get people hope's up so i would rather not say it if you guys really want a date and some confirmation and remember which is in no way reliable credible as I have said yeah because i put pieces together using those comments and the information I read and it seems consistent and the right idea of what's going on or at least it's been like that for the past 6 months plus look at it this way Kendrick Lamar and Slim The Mobster need to release there albums this year for what i'm about to say is a educated guess The reason why Detox still hasn't come out are in my guess is that 1. Dr. Dre stopped working with D.O.C. for those who don't know the greatest ghost writer of all time he wrote a lot of lyrics a long with Snoop for the chronic and he wrote lyrics on 2001, the chronic was made cause of him he was Snoop Dogg's mentor so without him no matter what era the album is not going to work 2. because these were not business albums they were done as a team effort family type of shit with a good vibe and energy and it's all just flowing and going together perfectly which Detox is lacking or was lacking. 3. Detox was supposed to be a album originally with all his protege's Game, Eminem, Hittman, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, D.O.C. everyone. Things obviously didn't go that way Eminem we know what happened, Hittman i'm sure most of you know what happened, 50 and Game obviously you know what happened and D.O.C. I just said why it happened so things didn't go as planned 4. This brings me to the last couple points he didn't have any Protege this goes back to the team effort Dre is a producer or actually a teacher/engineer he has a ear and mind in terms of music no one does but he can't do it alone a engineer/teacher needs assistants, people he is mentoring and teaching now he's discovered Kendrick Lamar and he's from Compton Slim The Mobster can write a hook and can ghost write so I think he's more for that in terms of rapping I don't think he has much potential but well see and I think his being Dre's protege something to do with Freeway Ricky Ross and i'm not trying to make some real distant guess cause this is some thing i put together in my head but my guess is Freeway is boy's with D.O.C. which is my guess as to Slim meeting up with Dre who do you think introduced Dr. Dre to Suge? 6. Name one of his protege's in recent years besides Bishop Lamont (who things also went wrong with) that fit the west coast California sound. 7. Dr. Dre has always been about redefining a era with a new sound and arguably in my view make a album better then the one before it's a new era all the points I have listed from my understanding have been accomlished or are in the process so believe me people it will come this year if you want me to give you a guess as to when it's coming then holla
Plus there was a big meeting at aftermath where some big decisions were made and though I don`t know for sure I`m confident Detox is one of them. Why do you think Dre`s featuring on all these mixtapes, and performing at this big show. He needs to promote Beats he needs to make sure Kendricks and Slim`s new album come out this year Kendrick won`t get dropped he`s way to skilled and he`s from Dr Dre`s hometown so don`t worry. Compton City is the next track for Kendrick`s album is justblaze tweeted it a long time ago when he announced detox single coming next week but I`m guessing Dre changed his mind and now Kendrick came out and recently said he has worked with Just Blaze and his next single is going to be city based anyone with common sense can figure out what his single is going to be will all the shit I just said. I read and keep up with a lot you just have to put pieaces together it`s coming this year personally I think within 4 months well have something huge detox related if not the whole album but it will be out this year believe me people with shit I know on top of all this he has no choice but to release there are way to many factors that are going to force him to release even if he doesn`t want to but now i`m pretty sure he wants to and the album has turned out the way he has wanted it so just be a little more patient people it`s coming i`m not going to say soon cause I new people were going to ask me for evidence and I was going to have to write all this out but it`s coming this year
Man all the stuff above you posted everyone knows. Nothing new.
dre is working with nelly. smh
Never trust a guy that dosent use periods. With that being said, how can anyone assume anythin or trust anything? I have been a part of this blog from the beginning and every few months we get a clown "S" or "Tom H" or whoever suggesting or guaranteeing release dates or material. This has gone on and on and on and on. Plugin said it best in that the only one who truly knows what is going on and is dialed into this project is the man himself. Until he comes out and gives any indication as to a hint of new material or a release date "The Album Isnt Coming Out".Enough of all the banter and claims, Coachella seems to be a good venue for him to perform new music but thats a big IF. How many times can you be let down only to be brought back up again and brought right back down? Detox is the ultimate tease and it can be an addiction as is evident on this forum as each of us continue to follow a pipedream year after year without ever hearing anything from Dre himself. If an artist chirps the doctors name or someone posts an article about him or mentions him in a tweet this blog is a buzz assuming that Detox is on the way. Everyone needs to take a step back and realize what this is, a waiting game, a hope that one day our favorite artist will wake up from his coma and deliver us an album. The insight is good from many on this site and i enjoy reading the comments rather than posting them because in all fairness there really isnt anything to comment on. Lets just hope that the wait dosent end with a dead run into a wall. Keep up the good work Uzee.JMac
All signs are pointing to a Detox release in the very near future my friends. Lets just think about it logically for a second here.All of the secrecy behind reporters asking the taboo question at any beats by Dre interview or the lack of any real Detox news within the past 4 or 5 months, should lead us all to believe that the only one who really knows anything is Dre himself and maybe his butt-buddy Ivonie. Not even Tom H. But it does makes sense that he would want to keep it as secretive as possible up to this point because it has been complete and/or near complete for some time now. He simply cannot afford to have another leak at this juncture. DOC was brought in to finish Detox the right way and his recent tweet suggest that is job is DONE! It's on Dre to release it now, how or when is anyone's guess. But my best guess is that he is a business man and he is surrounded by businessmen, therefore he is going to release this album in a way that's profitable to his brand name. Hmmm... has anyone checked out the beats by dre website lately? The description for Detox headphones literally states: "To celebrate the release of Dr. Dre’s highly anticipated album Detox, we’re introducing the limited edition Detox Pros so you can feel and hear the music how Dre intended.....You will not want to listen to Detox or any other of your favorite Dre beats on anything else." Sounds like he's finally ready to bank of this album to me. Also, now that fact that he is headlining at one of the biggest concerts in the country would have to suggest he finally ready to let his baby go. With regards to the recent work with other artists,Dre is one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time. I would have to imagine he gets bombarded by everyone in the hip-hop community all the time to produce their shit. But he has been so focused on Detox/beats these past few years that he's had no time to work on any of their shit. Has it occurred to anyone that maybe the reason Dre is finally returning some calls to guys like Nelly, Mannie Fresh, Rick Ross and TI is because he is finally done with Detox? It would certainly explain why he now he all of sudden has time to produce a track here or there for these guys. Believe me fucking Nelly will not be on Detox, I think we all know that. mlp
I don't know about you guys but i'm actually pretty excited about this. this isnt china where the only reason to perform there would be to expand the market for beats. this is smack in the middle of california in a huge ass music festival. Beats have been doing extremely well this past holiday season... i dont see dre using this just for promoting beats. It will be hopefully to either release a new single or just to remind people that he is still a hip hop artist. Make no mistake, cochella is fucking huge and the only reason why logic doesn't point to a new single is because of the fact that this is dre and dre usually disappoints when it comes to his music as of late. However this event will be a fucking huge indication of how dre is actually commited to his music these days. If dre comes out with snoop on stage and there is a huge beats by dre logo in the background along with snoop wearing beats, and the only scrap of authentic non commmercial hip hop on stage is left in the song coming through the speakers... then we will know that dre has sold out and doesn't give a shit about his fans or hip hop.
fuckoff the troll used my name to diss Plugin, I agreed with Plugin! J-mil
Yo i`m the one who posted those long ass coments and you know what I don`t blame you guys for thinking i`m a troll or don`t want to believe me. Dre has brought this upon himself by doing this shit and that`s cool I understand why you guys don`t believe no one no more. But trust me it`s coming this year mark my words you`ll see I have heard some information that Kendrick Lamar is going to perform Compton City with Dre at Coachella now i`m not sure if it`s Kendrick`s album single or Detox`s single i`m guessing it`s Kendrick`s album single and it`s produced by Just Blaze it possibly samples aaliyah rock your boat
All I know is when the album we call Detox comes, it's gone be ridin'. So many new sounds from Dr. Dre in the last few years. We know the new mixtape feature was claimed to be part of the original leak. But maybe the leak was the best thing to happen to , because he can still put out the final versions of the leaked tracks on mixtapes, other people's albums and on itunes for almost no investment. As long as all the lyrics are ad rap for the real album then it's all helping to create a general wave that will ride in. is like the reference for the rest of the stuff. Sort of the top of the pyramid if you will. Look at the charts for the last few releases. I mean, it's rocket science to have doggystyle, the chronic, dove shack, ice cube and all that shit on the charts and MTV at the same time. 2001 you have the same broadcast medium, so you have to have a wave. Now you have stuff like itunes and youtube and basically albums don't sell. But there are always acts that can do the album thing, it's just not going to be as casual as it used to be. I reckon there'll be a LOT Of singles on itunes where you basically have the west coast up in 10-15 of the top 25. Then you know Jay Z and atl have armloads of singles to drop. Just create this renaissance of music by and for black people. And it's going to be ridin because look at Kendrick's ADHD lyrics where he's talking about how nigga born in the 80's relate to themselves and the world. Man we had AIDS, crack, and now we're damaged and we need something to lead us. We got the black president and seems like nothing changed and what needs to change is us.
some new dre material!!a must download!!detox chronicles vol 6!!DETOX comin' bitches!!
There is a Dr. Dre mixtape going to come out before the release of Detox he`s been working on that who do think nelly and all these guys we don`t want on the album he`s keeping it with a new west coast while keeping elements of The Chronic and Chronic 2001 Trust me people from what I know it`s good Dr. Dre didn`t release the album he changed the album for worse after he stopped working with D.O.C. look at My Prescription and Under Pressure he wanted to make it a electronic sound like the guy above said even the teacher makes mistakes and that`s what he did this is why the delay because he had stopped working with D.O.C. and he was going to release his electronic sounding album which sounded horrible people said Dr. Dre Aftermath Presents was weak I say people are fucked in the head that album was dope as fuck not obviously the best it was Amazing more less hardcore then previously because of all the drama that happened with Death row and he wanted to get away from that but anyway this album version with these wack artists he decided to do this in 2008-2009 because detox was delayed because as I said this was supposed to be a album with all of his proteges but it didn`t go that way it was a new era Dre thought times have changed no one wants Chronic 2001, The Chronic type of stuff and that sound and lyrics but he realized he was wrong and almost fucked up that`s why delayed it again with the reception of Kush but more so I Need A Doctor, My Prescription, Chillin and Under Pressure leaks and there feedback and all of these tracks which were on the 2010-2011 edition of Detox since he has had so many version. But They leaked and that plus the bad reception for I need a doctor and the leaked track thankfully delay it even more that`s when everything started to fall into place and were about to find out soon. If you go look at detox before 2008 Detox it was dope as fuck I have all the Detox Leaks plus some rare beats for the most part it sounded dope as fuck a proper updated version and sound of chronic 2001 with new elements especially new dope West Coast artists go look up Nino Bliss Detox Reference track or a track i`m sure you all know Topeless and I have some beats but those are not every where on the net you gotta dig for them. He started working with D.O.C., He found his new true Protege in my opinion Kendrick Lamar who is dope as fuck and has a lot of potential he is the next big hit and last artist of the West before it probably dies down completely because Game is going to be out soon enough as well. Slim is better for ghost writing and hooks and that`s what I think he is more rather then a skilled lyricist and in that sense he`s the same as 50 because 50 wasn`t that lyrically complex. Everything fell in place this way the vibe came back Dre`s motivation and especially him selling his shares of Beats put him back in the type of environment 2 previous classics were made it flowed and everything started working and you`ll see I have never said Detox will come out this date or this date now i`m saying it because i`m confident but you have my word IF DRE DOESN`T RELEASE IT THIS YEAR IT WILL NEVER COME OUT SHUT DOWN THIS BLOG ALL DETOX BLOGS IMMIEDIATELY BUT WELL FOUND OUT WHO`S WRONG. Word exactly ``we need to change us`` that`s what i`ve been saying though i`m not black so the black struggle doesn`t apply to me but it doesn`t matter it`s not about race, religion, colour it doesn`t matter i`m a human so I face struggles like any human does doesn`t matter what race you are were human we all have our freedoms being taken away from us all of face the same problem the world`s economic and eventually social and stability in jeporady.
Was hoping it was just a troll J-Mil, last I remember you were a legitimate poster on here. Thanks for clearing it up man lol and sorry for jumping the gun."I ACTUALLY HAVE SOME SOURCES" and other rambling ass walls of text bullshit - Tom H. or whoever he is nowLike the other dude above me already posted, nothing you said in that long ass essay of bullshit is new information. Like at all. Some of us pay pretty good attention too, I've followed Detox for 7 years now so if I wanted, I could come in here pretending to do what you're trying to do and probably convince a few people since I have a pretty good knowledge and history of this album. Then again we both know it's extremely easy to take advantage of people's hopes and frustrations by feeding them what they're starving to read and believe. Like anything though, if you want the respect to be seen as credible, you have to earn it first. Doing everything you can but being straight and lending credibility just makes you foolish and all that effort into typing that much nonsense nobody even wants to read that desperately tells me I'm right.Literally, NOTHING you said in all your posts is new information. I give you a 0/10 because it wasn't even a good effort.On another note though, I was thinking earlier that if Dre is headlining a big festival like Coachella this year, he would have to know people aren't even there to see him perform, they're going to be there assuming and believing he's coming out for Detox - just like on here. I still stand by my opinion that nothing about this necessarily guarantees it's coming (I hope I'm wrong though!), but I'm optimistic he'll throw Kendrick on stage and get on some of that new shit at least. I also think that whatever happens at Coachella will give us the best idea of where Detox is now. If he does his set, nothing new, and that's it without news or a new song, then don't expect it this year either.
I feel sorry for all of you fighting, calling each other names over this shit cos Dre dont care.If Dre took this album seriously as much as you guys - he would have said something about it.All he talks about is beats.The day I hear him saying, on video, anything about Detox then I will renew my faithUntil then, he is just a d!kk fcukn with your emotions.
I dont write this to be credible I don`t give a fuck what you think I`m writing to let the ones who don`t know know you don`t like what I write don`t pay attention to it. Im not one who wants to get people`s hopes up but i`m confident it`s coming and you will all see and then talk shit and hate no one on this blog said Kendrick might perform Compton City at coachella for his album I`ve seen no news or comments about that except for mine so get the fuck out of here with that nothing new shit you can`t appreciate shit i`m writing just to let people know then don`t speak on it
HOPE IM WRONG BUT I REALLY BELIEVE THAT DRE AND SNOOP WILL BE DOING THE SAME STINT THAT THEY DID OVERSEAS. STILL IT'S GOOD THOUGH TO STILL SEE THEM TOGETHER. IT WOULD BE GREAT TO SEE THEM TOUR AGAIN. ABOUT THE ALBUM GOING THROUGH DIFFERENT VERSIONS AND CHANGES / THERE ISN'T ANY REAL CONCRETE TRUTH TO THAT. THAT IS ALL UNDER ASUMPTION. DRE NEVER CAME OUT PUBLICALLY AND SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THAT AND I REFUSE TO TAKE ANYONE ELSE'S WORD BUT HIS. TALK ABOUT JIMMY TURNING DOWN DETOX IS JUST PLAIN BULLSHIT. DRE IS AFTERMATH @ BEATS PRODUCT. DRE IS IN CHARGE. WE HAVEN'T EVEN HEARD AN OFFICIAL 1ST SINGLE FOR DETOX. KUSH AND I NEED A DOCTOR DO NOT COUNT. AS FAR AS THE OTHER TRACKS THEY WERE EITHER LEAKED OR STOLEN. DRE IS NO DUMBASS, HE KNOWS HIS HIS SOUND AND KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HIS FANS WANT AND HAS KNOWN THIS ALL ALONG EVEN BEFORE KUSH AND I NEED A DOCTOR, I MEAN COME ON EVERY TIME EM RELEASED HIS FIRST " OFFICIAL SINGLE " IT WAS ALWAYS LACED WITH THAT SIGNATURE DRE SOUND. NOW DON'T YOU THINK DRE WOULD DO THE SAME.
no worries Plugin, ur one of the realest posters on here so thought Id sign up to avoid other instances of troll-fuckery in the future.
Good post AnonymousDidnt they teach you at school that CAPS are hard to read? ? ??I agree with one thing - Dre never said anything about Detox, he said nothing about the release date, nothing official about Detox has been said about him.So clos ethe blog until Dre says something about Detox and we will have something to talk about.
at the poster talking about the mixtape to be released, dont think Dre would release a free mixtape, too business minded to waste music without earning $. Whats more likely if something inded is on the horizon is an EP, containing Kush, INAD, Die Hard, maybe that song from the Chrysler ad and possibly some others, call it Pre-tox or some shit.
Na he's dropping a mixtape that's what he's working with all these random artists like Nelly, TI etc. Detox is done now it's just on Dre to release it.
Nah man dre won't drop a mixtape. an ep is more likely.
@Mel_Man_MelvinMelvin Bradford#Detox on the Way @DrDre
This is big news! The last time melMan was on twitter before today was in 2010! The wait is nearly over!!!
Probably just performing hits from the 90's.People should throw shit at Dre if he leaves the stage without performing something new.Drefan since 91
Yo trust me he is releasing mixtape no ep the mixtape is oging to have N.W.A. old school feel to it. And see now you got info from Mel-Man and Dawaun Parker also said Dr. Dre never once scrapped detox he just went back and added a new sound and new elements just a little bit more patience people we have waited 8 years what's another couple months detox is coming Dre is featuring on many artists mixtape as well to get the hype goin.
Slim said he had to fight pretty hard to even put a mixtape out through Aftermath. They may do a mixtape for Dre, I really hope so, but it would be really out of place because Dre is no rapper and that's something he doesn't do and never did. I mean it makes sense on paper to have a Detox mixtape but the more I think about it, the less of a good idea it is because if it gets shit on by hating ass "fans", then it's in everyone's head Dre fell off, it unfairly makes Detox a target for the same thing before anyone hears it.I'll believe it when I see it but as of now I'm learning toward it not happening. The idea is kind of stupid. It may not even be worth it if Dre is spending time making sure the mixtape is perfect; put out Detox and then put out the material that didn't make it afterward. I'm for that.And hey, Tom H. or whatever, how come you can spend so much time making wall of text claims on here, then say fuck you to me when I call you out, but refuse to earn some credibility to put me in my place? You can't demand we take you seriously and hang on your every word like its gospel without earning that respect first. Give us something that gives us a reason to actually believe you're on the inside like you say you are. Even if you're telling the truth but still refuse to prove your credibility, you would have to feel nobody is going to believe you and you just end up looking like an asshole. That's why I'm sure you're full of shit but I encourage you to prove me wrong because shit, I'd like to have a reliable source of info on here but you're the exact same as all the other phony ass nobodies who did what you're doing long before you. Nothing personal.
Dr Dre can release a ep like 4-6 songs including 1.kush 2.i need a doctor 3.die hard etc. Just like drakes so far gone ep
Na but the goal of the mixtape is to hype detox and it's going to like I said because the mixtape will not be a new sound but more so new types of idea's and elements with the same chronic 2001 and chronic forumula. Detox is going to be something complteely new my guess is he's kinda trying to stay loyal to the old fans just in the minor case they Don't like Detox. But the main reason why he probably is going to put a mixtape is to throw everyone off as to how it will sound and Detox will drop and then it'll be something totally unexpected and new sound which will be the 1st step to assuring Detox is a success. But Dre finally understands once again that if the music is real and true to him and his fans then no matter what it will be a success because being real and making a album because you feel it and everything flows is something heavily lacking in todays music. Dre won't put out a ep especially with tracks already released because that's not how he works he puts out fresh shit anything released or leaked will not be on his album or mixtape
Plugin-Not sure why you have a beef with me but its all good. I never sleighted you in anyway. If i post something i put my name behind it. Besides i came in here to give people some hope from info that was told to me. Its a free country u dont have to believe me just relaying what I know. Thats why i wasnt.going to get into anything back and forth. I do know this, there is no mixtape in the works, just the album. And ill say it again youll have a new single and release info within the next 30-45 days. If there isnt then what do i know. But i do know for a fact that i wont be and am not incorrect. Just would rather not scar my name as to how it leaked. Good commentary though i understand the distrust. Shit everyone in the industry does. If i can break something in the interm more concrete thats valid i will. Its always good to hear from "Fans" so keep it up. Your wait is coming to an end. And again no worries about the other thing, if i address you you will know it. Tom H.
Tom H don't even worry I try to do the same thing make sure people don't give up hope and give them some information I said the same thing well get something around Feburary 1. But these guys are just angry and tired of hearing other people telling them and that's why its all good don't take these guys personally that don't wanna get there hopes up once again from some outside info. We gotta keep quiet and let these guys find out for themselves
Is that a troll i'm guessing it is but well see I doubt there going to drop the single this early I know Dre is supposed to start the promotion January but I heard he might push it to February but I might be wrong if your not trolling then well find out in 2 days
single out in two days Tom H your on the right path but abit offS
Fuck off S every time you are wrong why do you think we will believe you now what a dickhead
o i meant to say feburary 18
I agree with pluginMixtape is a bad idea. If the mixtape is not good enough - and people frown upon it then Detox will never come out. I first heard of Detox before I heard beards and now I am even bold and there is still no detox.Just release a bannger track Dre.Release that Die Hard song; I mean comeon - what are you doing with it. You are not really planning on puting it on Detox; its good but not a bannger.
people should just relax and take the situation for what it is a hip hop album ,possibly a very good one ,time will tell but im optimistic about it ..its being the best part of a decade in the works in that time there has been a fuw false dawns and there may be another one or two before detox arrives, live your lives and when the album arrives njoy it
I'm not beefing with anyone personally, but there's no point in spreading rumors without even trying to back them up. I don't like it because it never pans out, it hijacks the conversation, and you set people up to start hating when their expectations aren't met - even if someone just made it up. IMO if you want to say the official Detox single and release date will be out in "30-45 days" for the next million years, good for you, but if you only want to make claims without giving anyone a good reason to believe you, you have to expect guys like me calling you out for it. I'm sure you're a nice guy and I don't have a problem with you, I have a problem with what you do. So thanks for the info, take a bow, and join a real conversation with us instead of trying to be the focus of this blog now.TBH it barely makes sense to believe the Detox single is dropping in a month without a word. Interscope schedules their shit and spaces out other releases to maximize promotion, sales, and minimize competition. Is there no marketing for Detox now? Shit they even rushed out a press release last year hinting at a Feb '11 date without it being official, but they're going to pop up and surprise us with the shit everyone's been waiting on for years? Doesn't seem right. When exactly does the "30-45 days" prediction start and end? Because you've been saying that for a week.
Watch the thrones official single dropped a week before the album release
that would be dope if the single came out of surprise. people would be so hyped IMO
Plugin you need to read Toms comments more thoroughly, he never said anything about something being dropped only that a release date would be announced. Yeesh, whats your problem with everyone on this blog anyway? Chill the fuck out.
Whats up bloggers im new to blogging, that was my watch the throne comment. Im known as F Wise...
Check dre's track record and you'll see he dropped his first single from the chronic 35 days after the album release,and 2001's first single dropped 19 days before the albums release...he is taking jay z and kanyes approach and drop his single maybe 2 weeks before album release..to avoid leaks, thats why we havent seen a single yet.. F Wise
I agree Plugin you need to relax, your material is good but too damn long winded at times...Its not like its your blog and you dictate whos right and wrong. Sit back and fucking relax for once.K-Dot
Not sticking up for plugin cause I'm sure he is man enough to do so himself but if you don't like what he posts don't read it move on to the next comment i like what he puts up it's just one man's opinion who has been commenting about detox for a long time witch i enjoy reading so don't give him shit because you ain't got quality DETOX comments
^^^ "he is man enough to do so himself" lol. This is a blog..no "manning up" is required people.
"Plugin you need to read Toms comments more thoroughly, he never said anything about something being dropped only that a release date would be announced. Yeesh, whats your problem with everyone on this blog anyway? Chill the fuck out." - Some guy"And ill say it again youll have a new single and release info within the next 30-45 days." - Tom H.Looks like he's saying something is dropping by then to me. I don't know what you were reading.Right or wrong? Nobody is on that here, I'm giving my views and opinion which you're free to disregard and call me an asshole if you like, that's cool too, but if someone wants to make these big claims with their name next to them, yet won't back them up, they're gonna get called out eventually. Doesn't mean I have a problem with anyone, it just means I've seen this a million times over the years and it does no good except to get people's hopes up and turn them into haters when it doesn't pan out. Maybe this guy is right though, anything is possible, but so far nobody has ever won a bet believing, thinking, or claiming this or that about Detox and that's the truth.
What happen to this blog? It's gone to shits sorry no offense to you uzee. I remember this blog was fun and cool to read other comments. Now their people who claim they are insiders and also people with no lives writing essays. I been coming here since the website started I really think uzee should moderate comments
in response to 'Deox2012' comment:i have been thinkin about moderating the comment again. For the reason as u said to block out 'inside info' which dont have any source what so ever. Plus immature comments and spammers/cloners.I think i will be doin this now. For QUALITY.Peace
Uzee, Thank You Bro. We needed this on here, something to keep the trolls away. And on the topic of unnecessary speculation, I read on one blog that if you play The Blueprint 3 underwater, it's Detox. Genius. As for a mixtape, I highly doubt Dre would ever even consider a public tape. The Detox Chroniclez nonsense is not affiliated with Dre. Just some unofficial series on DatPiff hosted by DJ Age. Somehow has gained notoriety on the website and downloads for speculative people wondering about Detox, most likely the same ones trolling right now. Whatever. I'm putting trust in the Good Doc, itll b out this year.
ye very unlikely it will b an actual mixtape affiliated from dre.btw where did u read about the blueprint 3 sounding like detox if played underwater haha? im curious.
Just saw McRens tweet about Detox!!!!! Look the fuck out Yall!!!!
what did he say?
I can't find any tweet? Link?
Mel MAN literally just tweeted 2 min ago again... maybe detox is coming out sooner than we think after all.https://twitter.com/#!/Mel_Man_Melvin/status/157593722475909120
I've been reading this blog about a year and a half I rarely post though. How many of you guys think Detox is actually done?
I have a good feeling 2012 is the year of Detox but because Kendrick said his album is wrapping up, I believe that's the best evidence Dre's album can't be too far ahead or behind. I don't know if it's "done", I think Dre may have indicated to his people that recording has finished and the tracks are probably chosen, but it's still a marathon until the finish line which is the official release date and single.It's cool everyone is so excited and we're getting word from Mel-Man and others Dre may finally feel good about putting it out, but until something is actually official, it'll always be too soon for me. After so many years of false starts, "Detox is done" claims by Snoop and Slim, and even hinted release dates from Dre and Interscope, it's never worth putting all your eggs in one basket until it's actually OFFICIAL news. The last stretch from an official date, single, to Detox's release is going to be a fun ass time though!
I think its actually done and hes just finishing his last promotion push for his headphones before he promotes his album. Make as much money possible off of headphones before making as much money possible off of detox. Hopefully its not wack like Under Pressure, which WAS ACTUALLY a detox track haha. If its similar to that YouTube video of him playing a track in the studio, then it should be good. It should be hawwwt
Whoever is going to Coachella make sure that you start the detox chants. Get the whole festival chanting Detox!!!!! and see dre's reaction!!!!
