In an interview to promote his line of Monster headphones, the reporter casually asked Dre what upcoming projects he had. “Only my album that I’ve been working on for the last 10 years, that’s it, Detox record. Hopefully, I’ll get it done at the end of this year, and we can hear it next year.” he laughed.
Asked what was causing the holdup of the album, Dre admitted, “motivation, other things getting in the way.” The album is the follow-up to Dr Dre’s critically acclaimed ‘2001’, which was released in 1999.
