Dr. Dre To Release Long Awaited ‘Detox’ Album On 420?

Dr. Dre To Release Long Awaited ‘Detox’ Album On 420?

Dr. Dre

Could the wait for one of the most long-awaited followups in music history (well, at least since Guns N’ Roses ‘Chinese Democracy’) soon be over? Definitely maybe! Dr. Dre has hinted that he is set to release his much-anticipated new album ‘Detox’ on April 20. In a video message posted by producer Just Blaze on Twitter, the rapper and producer can be seen revealing the date to camera. “4/20 baby. 4/20, I’m coming,” Dr Dre tells viewers. If confirmed, the release date means ‘Detox’ would arrive on the same day as the world’s most recognized counterculture holiday.

The legendary rapper recently released the video for “Kush,” the first single from the forthcoming album. The track features the vocal talents of Snoop Dogg and Akon. ‘Detox’ certainly doesn’t lack star power as it is to feature guest appearances from the likes of Eminem, La Roux, Snoop Dogg, The Game and Akon.

Dr. Dre recently made it clear that after the album’s release in February he will focus on finding new undiscovered talent, leaving the rap game to the young stars.

”As far as me going into the mic booth, that s*it is over. I’m getting older… I’m always going to talent-scout and try to find new artists to work with. But, yeah, that’s it, new artists… [can] say some of the things I won’t say. It’s been a little tussle in that area also, just because of age and being able to identify with the younger audience.” he told XXL magazine.

What better place to do this than the best nightclub concert venue in the world……….. The House of Blues!

Imagine walking in to a costume party where on the screens around you a trailer for Lost Boys: The Thirst is playing. You sit down for dinner, or walk up to some hot Vampire at the bar, and order yourself a drink . Just then the room goes dark and the evening begins……at this point…..anything can happen!!!

Live Nation Presents: The Lost Boys Ball  featuring a live performance by Truth Movement and a very special screening of the movie that started it all The Lost Boys. After the film and the concert, there will be a Q and A with myself, and other cast members at times, where we will answer all of your Lost Boys related, or Truth Movement related questions.

If that wasn’t enough there will also be a sneak peak of the newest Lost Boys film… The Thirst. On top of all of that there will also be contests and give aways surrounding the events.

The Lost Boys Ball will be a limited engagement. Kind of a mini tour and will only take place at House of Blues venues. The schedule for the tour is as follows……..

The limited amount of shows on this tour makes each and every night a very special experience. Just by being there you will be taking part in entertainment history as one of the first ever to experience an evening such as this. For those of you who came out on the last tour, you already know that a Live Truth Movement show is like nothing you have ever experienced.

With this tour we are truly taking it to a whole new level and we are about to bring you an experience that is TRUTHfully unparalleled.

New Dr. Dre ‘Detox’ Track “Turn Me On” Leaks Online

New Dr. Dre ‘Detox’ Track “Turn Me On” Leaks Online

Dr. Dre

A new song purportedly set to feature on Dr. Dre‘s new album ‘Detox’ has appeared online. The track, which is titled ‘Turn Me On’, began circulating on blogs and file-sharing websites on Monday (August 16). It is the second seemingly unfinished song to leak from ‘Detox’ in recent months. In June, the Jay-Z-featuring ‘Under Pressure’ also appeared online.

‘Detox’ is Dr Dre’s long-awaited follow-up to his 1999 album, ‘2001’, and is expected to arrive later this year, although no official release date has been set.

Dr. Dre recently revealed that he was also working on an instrumental hip-hop album about the planets that make up the solar system. The veteran producer said he had been thinking about the record for “a long time” and that he wanted to call it ‘The Planets’.

“It’s just my interpretation of what each planet sounds like,” he said in an interview with Vibe magazine. “I’m gonna go off on that. Just all instrumental. I’ve been studying the planets and learning the personalities of each planet.”

Dr Dre didn’t unveil a release date for that project, but said he was working on the album during spare time and that it would feature special surround sound.
