I just read some interesting things about the concept of this album. I agree in order for this to go down as a classic that will be remembered it just can't be "The Chronic 3" with a bunch of guests old and new even if it is dope music. I like the idea of Dre doing something bad and then going to "Detox". Maybe this could be the opening of Dre doing some dark gangsta tracks in the beginning of the album with some of the old guests that were mentioned in this thread, former Death Row inmates, maybe  Ren and Cube hey anything is possible and then having the theme of him going into a "Detox" type of thing and changing the production up to incorporate this new style with more jazzy beats and it would be a great way to introduce his protege Bishop Lamont into the world.
i see, so you want some sort of transition from "old" to new?

but don't you think that your idea could mean a less consistent album if he makes the album consist of 2 parts?

One thing I am having trouble though is the part of picking a first single, what should it be the "Detox" part or the early dark gangsta type track? Which would make more of an impact the way "Still DRE" did because Dre dropped a track right there which is a signature one and will be remembered as his comeback single? It has been a longer wait for a Dre single this time because he had "Been There Done That" in '96 so he dropped one 3 years later
the intro of Detox is called intervention.
not sure how dre is going to kick it off though; you'd expect him to come with some sort of warmup single.

he better not come with another still dre or forgot about dre.
don't get me wrong , i love those tracks, but the formula is too simple for me.
but the track will offcourse be considered as Dre's "comeback"  :P

the Detox part should come at the end; at least that would make sense to me  ;)
it's going to be a concept album after all.

I think the overall sound of the album would not be as consistent but I think the album itself as far as being a dope and classic album can be done. I'm not saying put in a whole bunch of different sounds and bunch them all together or even put in G-funk, just some gangsta type tracks in the beginning similar to a few that he had on "2001" bet even with a darker sounding vibe. Dre is great at sequencing the songs on an album so one track kind of flows on to the other one so I don't think it would be a problem for him.

yeah I don't think the same I'm Back type single would do the trick, I guess a street warmup single, I remember when "2001" came out there were leaks of songs like the OG "What's the Difference" with the unfinished beat. I remember hearing "Forgot About Dre" too. Both before "Still DRE" dropped

from a fan point of view i could probably still appreciate it, but i don't like the idea of dividing it roughly in 2 parts.
like Chad said:
fuck what sub-generes the rappers belong to.

Detox is going to have a wider mix of different styles/subgenres than 2001, because more people are involved this time.
i know that Dre is able to put it all together without making it seem like a compilation but am i really the only one that thinks that a general "theme" for the album is not enough  :-\ the way i see it, with all the people involved the only way to do it is to make a conceptalbum or am i mixing up a few things  :-\

yeah I don't think the same I'm Back type single would do the trick, I guess a street warmup single, I remember when "2001" came out there were leaks of songs like the OG "What's the Difference" with the unfinished beat. I remember hearing "Forgot About Dre" too. Both before "Still DRE" dropped
at least one snippet, and perhaps another youtube video; the bishop video had spread fast.

I always thought of Dre's albums as compilations so I don't really mind that part, but I didn't really mean to divide the album into 2 parts, just have maybe 3 tracks lets say featuring for instance on one Kurupt, RBX and Rage in a throwback type gangsta track. Dre, Cube and Ren on another one and then have a Snoop/Dre one. The rest could be Aftermath artists from the label primarily featuring on Bishop but of course I expect Em, Busta and even 50 on a track, hopefully just one with 50. I definitey think this would work along with the concept.

^^^^^
-Dre is learning "how" to score movies,he says (at the time of the interview) that it will take him 5-6 years to get it down.
This can explain;
*Why Detox is taking a minute to finished.
*Support the "movie" concept idea.

-It also has a part of Dre introducing new producers,so its not like Dre aint working.  :P

yeah that interview is from 2004:

Dr.Dre Scratch magazine Volume 1 Summer 2004

I have a feeling Detox will be out by the end of the year, Not to say that Dre will follow the same pattern but "The Chronic" came out in December of '92 and "2001" in November of '99.

That would be great if the "Detox" project had a story line like G malone's Beach Cruiser (dies at the beggining then wake up from a nightmare). As others said it could be Dre showing his dark gangsta side at the beggining. And then, he goes to a club and something wrong happens (murder !) which makes him want to detox.  And that would also be a chronology of his carreer with the features that go from kurupt to bishop.

Another possibilty would be a kind of compilation album but with a particular sound which is all over the album (like 2001 and the chronic).
The tracks would then go through alot of crazy subjects and ideas like "imagine" or "cycle of dre" (jonathan rotem who produced it talked about it in 2005 or something) where dre goes back to all his carreer (like snoop did recently).
Another rumored track is about hip hop missing dr dre.
The album could be a compilation of classic tracks like these about party, the good and bad things in life, youth violence, fucking bitches, drugs,  and more serious topics about death and hip hop in general...

I think the track "Imagine" is great tell of what detox will sound like...

I'd rather it never come out, than for it to come out and suck and be full of rappers that I hate.  I would lose so much respect for dre.
True, this is a good question you brought up. A lot of people aren't really seeing your idea through, and they are putting Dr. Dre under an aura of invincibility, but it's not guaranteed that, if Detox comes out, it will be great. If he drops something average or worse, it could severly tarnish his legacy. I would rather have him never come out than come with something weak, it's always better to leave your fans wanting more than getting tired of him. It's possible that if he came out weak he could come back hungry with something else, but the fact that he has had so much time for this would kind of cancel that thought out for me. Interesting discussion.

i think it was already clear that the disappointment when Detox finally drops is inevitable.
but then i ask you, how important is a first impression for you?

i mean, that Detox will be classic, according to "dre" standards is subjective and that expectation level is unrealistic.
that doesn't mean it will be very unlikely that Detox is going to be a good Dre soloalbum.

i see.
but would it really hurt the sales that bad if interscope chose to release it in the beginning of a new year ( in Detox case, january 2009 for example) ?

I think Interscope would probably love to have it by late Novemeber, Black Friday week, to around the week before Christmas when sales are at the highest of the year. I don't think January is a good month because it is the lowest sales month of the year and people are just coming off spending tons of money on holiday season shopping, March/April would be better. I am speaking of course from Interscope's point of view, personally I don't mind it coming out in January, I will buy it regardless

yeah i'm sure that Interscope knows when it's best to drop it.
well april has just started, so let's hope Dre can finish Detox this year, otherwise it will probably automatically be delayed (according to your view; offcourse you could be wrong, but i think your impression of Interscope's release strategy makes sense).

I answered this one above,lets say it took me a couple of days to really get into his previous albums.
Im not easily sold  :P,the first impression counts.
But with an artist like Dre,Ill give it a chance or two before I dismiss it.

After all its Dre  :P :P ;)

i see; well i can only speak for myself offcourse  :laugh:
i've caught myself liking certain tracks of an album that i didn't like before so many times  :laugh:

so as far as Detox, i think the critic "attitude" is definitely a good thing, but i think that's why a first impression when listening to Detox is probably going to be a disappointment.
i could be wrong, as i said, i can only speak for myself.

when listening to Detox a couple of times, "we" may notice things that we didn't notice before or we start to like the direction etc.  :laugh:

that's why i try to prepare myself for a dissapointment when i finally get the chance to hear it for the first time(offcourse this isn't really possible, since i haven't gotten a proper view of Detox, but still  :P ),

I always thought of Dre's albums as compilations so I don't really mind that part 
i see, but Dre's "soloalbums" do give a different feeling than a regular compilation/soundtrack right?
( or would you put the aftermath compilation and the wash soundtrack in the same category as The Chronic and 2001?).
despite the various guest features, they do give me the feeling of a regular album.

It has been a longer wait for a Dre single this time because he had "Been There Done That" in '96 so he dropped one 3 years later

he had Zoom in 98 with LL and I believe the wild wild west soundtrack with "bad guys always die" came out in 99 before 2001 too ...so there was a lot more dre (vocal) presence overall

These are some parts of the comments from "mellow man". Do you know who is this guy for real ? I read it would mike elizondo. If that shit is real the album is gonna be like that :  8)

"The Vibe award incident really had a big impact on Dre. I have never seen Dre as determined and focused as he is right now. His anger and will to defeat all those who try to bring him down are having a direct impact on the aggressive nature of his recent productions. I promise you that no one is as driven as Dre is to make Detox FUBAR the competition or anyone who stands in his way.
Dre is looking for a new sound and for that he is working with some people with fresh ideas and grooves. Right now if I were to guess, I would guess that Focus and/or Hi-Tek will be to Detox what Mel-Man was to 2001.
Every time Dre has changed sounds he has always done it with a new group of musicians. Detox will be no different. So although some of us on the 2001 crew will be a part of Detox it will probably be a much smaller role and a fresh group of musicians and co producers will get a shot to make their mark. The only thing I know is that Detox will not sound anything like 2001. Dre is really trying to leave a permanent dent on the sound of music with the musical atomic bomb he hopes Detox will be.
He will unleash a new sound when he's confident it will be good enough and creative enough that the 99 percent who are followers will start to try to recreate and copy the new dre sound.
dre is just going to mix, arrainge and create sounds and instruments in a way that has never been heard before- a Andre Mozart Young orchestral piece. like i mentioned before dre is always concerned about his legacy. Detox is going to be the last thing they remember dre with as an artist. he wants to drop music that people will remember forever.
i really can't describe the sound. just think of a wall of sound being shaken by a cali earthquake. i don't know what else to say. i just find myself laughing at some of the stuff cause its so goofy. but the aggression of the pace combined with the crazy instrumentations and swirling arsenal of sounds makes for some funky
and crazy ****. plus Detox will include by far the best collection of mc's for any of his solo albums.
i will only say that people who say that dre's sound has become basic and repetitive will be shocked at Detox. dre's new sound will be really innovative, melodic and musical using a huge array of live instruments and orchestral sounds. there is a reason dre has used a lot of the same style the last few years. it has been done on purpose. one, people used to his current sound, Detox will amaze them cause it is so different. and two, dre refused to copy anyone else - he will stick with one sound til he creates another innovative sound to change the game. and believe me dre will change the game on detox. each song will contionously change in pace, agressiveness, pitch and instruments. it will be nothing as you have ever quite heard before. yes dre has been getting instrumentals from top producers all over the hip hop nation. mostly for backup in case dre just can't come up with enough on his own, but some will probably appear as part of a track. right now dre is a mad scientist and orchestra conducter at the same time. he's preparing a atomic bomb that will destroy the sound barrier. Detox may fail, but its defintely going to be interesting and will cause a lot of differing opinions and discussion. the mc's on the album may be the finest group of mc's to ever appear on one album, and dre will match their lyrical genius with his musical genius.

i don't think that's the reason why he left; he's been around for years, so if the skeptism really bothered him that much he would not have been around that long.

would be great if he returns in the future though, since he would be a perfect contributor for this topic

i don't think that's the reason why he left; he's been around for years, so if the skeptism really bothered him that much he would not have been around that long.

would be great if he returns in the future though, since he would be a perfect contributor for this topic

people actually thought he was Mel-Man, I remember going to other websites and seeing quotes stating Mel-Man said this about Rakims album and stuff like that

Chad I agree with Dre-Day, he would have been perfect to discuss this topic with now that we are all on the board and especially since only a few of us are willing to serioulsly talk about it

What Mr. Porter means by "before I go back out there" is supplying beats for Dr Dres swan song Detox. He - along with quite a few other notable producers - have been hard at work supplying the good Doctor with a plethora of beats. Many are curious what is going on with the project but Porter can give some insight.

He just needs that first record, he says of the hold up on the album. Hes got records. Weve busted our ass and I hope Dre feels that way. We really came to the table with different things. But Dres going to do that record. Were not going to do it, were just giving him ideas. But Andre Young is going to come with it! Its just his last record and hes gotta go out with a bang!

not sure how to interpret this, but somehow i get the feeling that the album is close to being complete (Dre just needs to pick/make the first 1single).
lol, that will probably take some time, but still  ;)

Denaun Porter aka Mr. Porter aka Kon Artis from D12 has been a busy man as of late. While putting in work for artists like Little Brother, Pharoahe Monch and Jay Electronica, Mr. Porter revealed to HipHopDX what he has coming up in 2008.

I definitely am going to help get this D12 album done, he states about working with his crew. I got 6 songs that Im in love with not just because I did them but because the guys are spitting their hearts out.

Porter also reveals a solo production album coming out this year titled Who Is John Doe.

Im putting out the Who Is John Doe project this year and its a great thing because it gives you a CD of all of the beats that didnt make it (on other albums), the Detroit producer explains. Its all chops and niggas aint never heard me do that. They are hearing beats that arent even put together. They are raggedy.

The guest list is full of some of the Motor City's finest.

The album has got Guilty Simpson, its got Black Milk, myself doing solo songs, Phat Kat. Its got all these cats I came up to listening with Jay Dee. Its got Slum Village. Elzhi has a solo song on there. Dwele. So I made that project for myself before I go back out there.

What Mr. Porter means by "before I go back out there" is supplying beats for Dr Dres swan song Detox. He - along with quite a few other notable producers - have been hard at work supplying the good Doctor with a plethora of beats. Many are curious what is going on with the project but Porter can give some insight.

He just needs that first record, he says of the hold up on the album. Hes got records. Weve busted our ass and I hope Dre feels that way. We really came to the table with different things. But Dres going to do that record. Were not going to do it, were just giving him ideas. But Andre Young is going to come with it! Its just his last record and hes gotta go out with a bang!

The one thing that piques the curiosity of many is the whereabouts of Porter's close friend, Slim Shady.

Eminems been recording, hes always working. Me and him havent talked much because I have my own career.

But although he hasn't talked as frequently with his friend as many would think, Porter did take the time to squash a few rumors that had been hovering.

Em aint fat, Porter laughs as he talks about the blond emcee from 8 Mile. He fucked his ACL up. What people dont know is that Em got sick around Christmas and he had pneumonia. Then he fucked his ACL up right after that and thats a serious injury. Hes straight. He just hurt himself and hes good. He aint high or fucked up somewhere. That nigga is working. Im going to help him get his record done. I need an Eminem record in my life for my own self. I need that.

Porter also says that Eminem is completely clean and in great spirits.

Hes the most clear and at his brightest point. Thats my family. We bump heads because we competitors. Im cuter than him and he hates it. Bitches love me, they love him too but he got more money than me.

This is what I suspected. The album is pretty much done, but Dre can't decide on the singles just yet. I understand that though--if he comes with anything that's less than Still D.R.E. or Nuthin But a G Thang level, it could totally change how his album is perceived and disappoint a lot of fans and potential buyers.

I think it is close to done too. The same thing happened with "2001" the album was just about finished about this time that year but Dre was searching for that first single. I think we will probably start to hear some tracks leak during the summer. I am still looking for a November/December release date
