Dr. Dre was reportedly working on another Detox for many years, but when asked about it, was very candid as to why it never released. Taken from Complex, this is what the Dr. Had to say about it:
“This is something you’re not gonna hear many artists say, the reason that Detox didn’t come out was because I didn’t like it,” he says. “It wasn’t good. The record, it just wasn’t good. I’ma keep it all the way 1000 with you, I mean seriously, I worked my ass off on it, but I didn’t think I did a good enough job. I couldn’t do that to my fans, I couldn’t do that to myself to be honest.”
The album will be released on August 7th, a week after the biopic, Straight Outta Compton which is reportedly what inspired this last album. We look forward to listening to this last album from one of the greatest rappers of his generation.
