Dr. Dre chronology 2001
Detox is the upcoming third and final studio album by American hip-hop artist Dr. Dre through Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records. Production for the album began in 2002 but has been delayed several times because Dr. Dre wanted to concentrate on producing for artists that were on his Aftermath record label, with the production delays being compared to Guns N' Roses long delayed album Chinese Democracy (2008). Initially announced in 2000 after the release of Dr. Dre's previous album 2001 (1999), Detox has gone through many renditions during its eleven-year production period, with the album being scrapped and restarted many times. Despite not having a confirmed release date, Detox has spawned two official singles, "Kush" and "I Need a Doctor" which have since been cancelled.
Work for the upcoming album dates back to early 2002, where its first version was called "the most advanced rap album ever," by producer Scott Storch. Even at the beginning of Detox's production, it was announced that it would be Dr. Dre's final studio album, which has been confirmed at different points throughout the album's ten-year production process. Because Dr. Dre had stated he was tired of rapping about marijuana use and stereotypical gangster lifestyle, he planned to make Detox a hip-hop musical telling the story of a professional hitman and his family, with an intended summer 2003 release date. In 2004, Dre took focus off the album to work on producing for Eminem, Game, and others. Upon completion, he resumed work on Detox with a plan to release the album in late 2005. The revival and promised completion of Detox was reflected in lyrics of Eminem's song "Encore/Curtains Down" and Game's song "Higher".
The planned 2005 release date passed and Dre was still working on the album, being in the second version of the album with 18 tracks complete at the time. The album, already famous at the time for being delayed so much, was announced for a September 2007 release date, though it was delayed again once the deadline passed. After the 2007 release date passed, Dre announced that Detox would still be released while he was at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards presenting the Video of the Year award. In a 2007 interview with 50 Cent, he stated Detox was continually delayed because of Dre wanting a perfect album, saying, "He's such a perfectionist. But sometimes that can be a bad thing. You create new pressure when you wait that long. When you put a new album against the last two classics, people will scrutinize it if they become impatient."
After rumors by All Hip-Hop of Detox being complete in May 2008, both Detox and Eminem's new studio album were revealed to be released for the fourth quarter of 2008. Snoop Dogg later confirmed Detox's completion and said that Dre was still deciding which tracks would be included. During the same month, Dr. Dre revealed that he aimed to release the album in November or December 2008, saying, "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".
In December 2008, Dre told MTV that the album would be released after Eminem's Relapse and 50 Cent's Before I Self Destruct, released in May 2009 and November 2009, respectively. In 2009, 50 Cent and Eminem asserted in an interview on BET's 106 & Park that Dr. Dre had about ten songs finished for Detox.
In May 2009, Dre premiered the first official snippet of Detox in a Dr. Pepper commercial. In an interview with The D.O.C., Dre confirmed that the album was to be completed in November 2009, subsequently announcing his hope to release the album in 2010. However, in January 2010 in an interview with Slam, Dr. Dre revealed that the album would not be released until 2011, stating, "Well, I'm working on it, but also I've been working on other people's projects; you'll probably hear something in a year or so." In April 2010, in aCNBC interview with Dre and Jimmy Iovine to promote Beats headphones, Dre stated that he would "finally release it this year".
Many recorded Detox tracks, some unfinished, leaked in 2009 and 2010, including "Under Pressure", "The Doctor", "This Is Detox", "Could Have Been You", "OG's Theme", "Say Dr. Dre", "Syllables", "Coming Back", and two versions of "Topless".
Following the Leaks, Dr. Dre stated that at least some of the leaked reference tracks would not be included in 'Detox'. Regarding the leaked track "Could Have Been You", a source close to Dr. Dre's camp told MTV that Dr. Dre was expecting the song to be on Detox and was furious with the track being leaked so early. The song was later released on 50 Cent's album Before I Self Destruct, but Bishop Lamont's verse was not included.
In September 2010, at a press conference for "Beats By Dre" headphones, Dre hinted at a Christmas release. He also expressed the inspiration and encouragement he received to finish the album, saying,"Being on the stage with Eminem and Jay-Z was one of the most incredible feelings I've felt in a long time. It inspired me, it made me want to hurry up and get back in the studio and put more effort and more work into my own project," and "The response from the people out there was just incredible,". "It let me know that I still got love out there and I'm not wasting my time in the studio with what I'm doing, with the music or with all the Beats product that we're putting out."
In January 2011, 50 Cent was interviewed by MTV regarding why the album was so highly anticipated."I think everyone is [looking forward to Detox]. When you got a producer that has that kind of production track record, you even have to credit both Eminem's success and my success to Dr. Dre as a producer. My first single off of Get Rich or Die Tryin' — people constantly tell me it was a classic — was produced by Dr. Dre, 'In Da Club.' Without that momentum from that song, I'm not sure they would have taken to 'P.I.M.P.' the same way or '21 Questions' or any of the other hit records I released following that."
Producer Just Blaze, a long contributor to the album, stated that since 2002, multiple versions and phases of Detox had been recorded over the history of the album, saying,“The work on Detox, it’s been a long process,” Just Blaze told “RapFix.” “I been going back and forth to L.A. for like eight years. Well, 2002, so it’s been nine years years, actually. I’ve seen the album through different phases. I’ve heard near-complete versions of the album, then he turns around and scratches it and does the same thing two or three times over.”
On May 21, 2011, Swizz Beatz confirmed that he and Dr. Dre were collaborating on both Detox, and Swizz Beatz's project, Haute Living. In an interview with Billboard, DJ Khalil said that Dr. Dre was in the final stretch of Detox work."Dre's album is definitely the most important thing right now, because he is definitely in the final stretch. He has the record going, but I'm sure he thinks there are pieces missing still. Until he finds those pieces, maybe he's not comfortable putting it out yet."
In August 2011, at the BMI Urban Awards, Snoop Dogg, pledged he would put all his effort to help Dre finish recording Detox, saying,“Ya’ll ain’t gotta wait too much longer, the Dogg is in the building. We gonna get this shit right.”
In September 2011, Kendrick Lamar confirmed that Detox was in the mixing process.
On April 20, "Under Pressure", featuring Jay-Z and co-produced with Scott Storch, was confirmed by Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre during an interview at Fenway Park as the album's first single. In May 2010 Dr. Dre said that "Under Pressure's" release was pushed back due to Eminem's single "Not Afraid" being released ahead of time. The single was then confirmed to be released in June 2010 with the album folllowing in the Autumn of 2010. On June 16, 2010 an unmastered, unmixed version of "Under Pressure" with no chorus leaked onto the Internet. Dr. Dre later talked about the leak saying, "I didn't get a chance to finish the record, the vocals are real rough, it's not blended right and there's not even a hook on the song. It's not done, the music's not done, it's just one of those things we have to deal with today in this business because of technology and all of that. It's real easy for somebody to steal your shit so what can you do?"" "Under Pressure" was never officially released and Dre has since said that the song would not appear on the album.
On November 16, 2010 a song titled "Kush" leaked which features Snoop Dogg and Akon. Joseph Kahn directed the music video to "Kush" which released on December 10, 2010. This is the second time the trio has worked together, the first being the single "Boss' Life" which featured Akon and was produced by Dr. Dre. On the same day, Dr. Dre spoke on Radio Big Boy regarding the status of his album and the leaked song "Kush," "I see a finish line right now, I'm wrapping it up, I need about two or three more songs and hopefully I will start the mixing process at the end of next month and from that point I am about 30 days out, so I'm excited about it. It ["Kush"] got leaked, it was a version of it that got leaked that I wasn't really happy about, so we are gonna go in push it and put it out because everyone seems to like it. Y'know I just thought, like, the content it's about weed smoking and I don't want people to think that's what my album is about, this is actually the only song with that type of content in it." Later that same day, a mastered version of "Kush" was released along with the creation of a new website. On November 18, "Kush" was made available to purchase on iTunes. The song has peaked at #34 on the Billboard Hot 100.
On November 23, producer Alex da Kid revealed that he was constantly working with Dre and had produced the album's second single "I Need a Doctor," featuring Eminem and Kid's protegé Skylar Grey. The song was made available for purchase on iTunes on February 1, 2011, and has since peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his first top-ten single as lead artist on the chart in 18 years, since "Fuck Wit Dre Day (And Everybody's Celebratin')" reached #8 in 1993, and also making it his second highest peak on the chart ever as lead artist, behind only "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang" which peaked at #2 in 1993. It has also peaked at #8 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming his first top-ten single on the chart since "Bad Intentions" reached #4 in 2001.
On June 18, it was revealed that Dr. Dre and 50 Cent recorded a song titled "The Psycho," which would be the album's third single after the two artists settled their fued with each other in May 2011.50 Cent said, "I did a joint with Dre for his album that's crazy" 50 Cent tweeted. "They were suppose to put it out this weekend but you never know with dre."}} After being unhappy with Interscope's treatment of his own project, 50 Cent threatened to leak "The Psycho" on July 25, 2011. However, Cent decided not to leak the record out of respect for Dre, "I wouldn't leak Dre's record he has done nothing but help me in my career."
Guests and production
Dr. Dre first mentioned Detox to the press around 2002, and since that time various producers and vocalists have contributed with potential tracks. Dr. Dre bought a beat for Detox from producer J. R.
