Oh man, not this again.  Dre won't let it die.  I really don't think Dre will release Detox as it was "meant to be", AKA, songs that are almost 10 years old now.  It will sound too dated.  And I have no interest in hearing an updated "Detox" consisting of songs with beats similar to the garbage COMPTON album.  I think the writer of the article is stretching a bit.  He asks if Detox is ever coming out, (even though in other interviews, Dre has said it will never happen), he replies "I'm working on a few songs, we'll see".  So the writer takes that and titles the article "Dre might release Detox after all".  I don't see how that is any confirmation at all.

Its true though, just when you thought Dre couldn't release an album worse than Aftermath Presents... He dropped this steaming turd to prove us all wrong.

Of course it's not gonna be songs from 10 years ago, Dre has been givin' "Detox" beats away for since he started workin' on it.

I've expected him to release something else for a while.  Hutch mentioned that they were working on new material after Compton came out.  I doubt he'll release anything under the Detox name though.

Co-sign.

Detox never existed and will never be released (i mean, not the postume compilation which can be released in 2058 by any major and anything else). I'm pretty sure Dre didn't even know how to finish this project. And when I hear what type of sound he worked on, I mean, some random melodies and beats (nothing more than random rap music) I'm not sad to see this album shelved. At least, Compton Soundtrack was a "concept" album, (almost) not credited as solo album, just this "Compilation by Dre" type of shit. Not disrespect to Dre and his efforts but, efforts in vain.

The only confirmation I have about Dre is, he was (is) a genius, not only for rap or hip hop community. He really have talent. But, the Dre eveybody loves, his music, his productions, his inspiration, his music director skills, all this thangs belongs to the past (from N.W.A. to Easy, DOC, Snoop, The Chronic, Eminem, 2001...).

This whole thing started up because a sports reporter asked him about Detox and he said his response was that heís working on some songs. He didnít say he was working on Detox or that heís even working on an album. Itís not Dre thatís keeping the dream of Detox alive, itís fans that keep bringing it up.

As for Compton, my only complaint about that album was the lack of videos and singles. I really enjoy it and still bump it regularly. I think all Dre fans can find at least a couple songs they enjoy on it, even if they donít like it as a whole.

Agreed.  I liked a few songs.  Just so hard to live up to the expectations.  And the album was such a far cry from what his last one was in sound and style, I think that led to some disappointment.  Don't get me wrong, I like Dre's music, respect him as a rap pioneer, all that good stuff, he has classics forever.  His music was great all the way til about 2013....then he wanted to ride that Kendrick fame and start patterning his music more like his style.  That's when he started to fall in my opinion. 

Like one of the other posters said, I had the exact same feeling when "Dr Dre presents....The Aftermath" came out.  Huge disappointment.  But he redeemed himself.  Hopefully he will this time as well.  I can't see that Compton album as being Dre's last album, even though some argue it wasn't "really" a Dre album, just as people said "Dre Presents the Aftermath" album wasn't really a Dre album either.

I'd be so happy if Dre dropped a total curveball, non rap album like his Planets concept that was spoken of a while back. Dre's talent is too big for rap, especially considering how much the genre has recessed since his heyday and him trying to sound "young" just comes across stupid and contrived ala Compton and is totally devoid of his usual magic. Seems like he has this hit and miss rhythm though so lets see what OAP Dre drops on his next album and if he's still talking abut weed, haters, falling off and all the other yawnfest stuff.

Dre was either joking or didnít take the question seriously to begin with.
