The anticipation buildup has reached ridiculous heights for Dr. Dre’s forever-delayed album Detox. We’ve heard leaks, demos, an official first single and enough rumors to fill ten thousand tabloid rags, but it appears that some final preparations are finally being made to the album that nobody can stop talking about.
Good news comes from the always informative and entertaining Conspiracy Worldwide Radio Show, who interviewed producer/rapper/Dre collaborator Nottz. In addition to discussing his many projects, Nottz "takes us on an informative journey regarding the creation of Dr Dre’s Detox. We talk track names, track order, featured artists and those producers who are handling production on the soon-to-be released Detox album."
"When [Dr. Dre] first started talking about Detox, I had the first joint on that album," Nottz explains. "Now, I have the first joint on this [latest working version] of the album. The first song, Game did a verse to it, and Dre was on it; they rapped on the intro of the album," he revealed. "I never heard it, but Dre and them told me about it, that it was hot. Just Blaze told me that he heard the joint [and thought] it was crazy."
