Rapper confirms 'Kush' will be first single from album

Dr Dre has teamed up with Snoop Dogg and Akon for the first single from his long-awaited ‘Detox’ album.

The song is named ‘Kush’ – scroll down and click below to hear it.

No official release date has been set for the single, which Dre has explained was inspired by smoking dope.

“It’s about smoking weed, but I don’t want people to think that is what my album is about,” he said. “This is the only song with that kind of content. It’s not a representation of what the album is.”

Dre said he was close to finally completing the follow-up to his last album, ‘2001’, which was released in 1999. “I’m near the finish line right now, I’m wrapping it up,” he told US radio station Radio Big Boy.

He added: “I need about two or three more songs and hopefully I’ll start the mixing process in the next month. From that point I’m about 30 days out.”

‘Detox’ has been in the works since 2003.
