In September last year, it was reported that Dr Dre’s next album will no longer be called ‘Detox’, as previously intended. Work on what would have been ‘Detox’, which Dre has claimed will be his last studio album, is believed to have begun after the release of the rapper and producer’s seminal 1999 album ‘2001’.

Lamar, who has worked with Dre both on his major label debut ‘Good Kid, M.A.A.D City’ and this year’s ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’, previously said he didn’t know when the rapper/producer’s album would be released. “I couldn’t give you that word. He’ll have to give you that word, but I know that he’s still a creative genius in there,” Lamar said.

“Dr Dre is focused like he always been. He focused on music, man,” Lamar added. “One thing about Dre, you can’t take the music away. No matter how much money he has, he’s always gonna be right there in that studio.”
