The follow-up to 1999's '2001' has been in the works for over a decade
Speaking at the Virgin Megastore on the Champs Elysées in Paris earlier this week – via The Guardian – 50 Cent said:
I don’t know if he’s even excited to do it now.
He added that the success of Dre’s Beats branded headphones is more of a priority for the former member of NWA, and said that ‘Detox’ may end up being released as an EP, containing only a handful of songs.
He said: “I’m not sure if he’s going to actually release a full CD or if he wants to just release the music that he’s comfortable with. He might do an EP or something like that – five or six songs.”
Dr Dre’s third solo album, the follow up to 1992’s ‘The Chronic’ and 1999’s ‘2001’, has been in production for over a decade. It was initially supposed to be released in 2005 and then in 2010. A host of rappers have been linked to the album over the years, including Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z.
