For the last thirteen or so years the hip-hop community has been anticipating the release of a new Dr. Dre album. The title? Detox. However, at this point in the time, Detox has become somewhat of an enigma, a mystery. According to Dre’s close associate, Snoop Dogg, the album has even been completed. Way back in 2008! And yet, still no word from Dre himself on the status of the album. Rumor has it that Dre has scrapped many different incarnations of the album due to leaked recording sessions. Whatever the case may be, it looks as if Detox is never happening.

Well, at least the album title Detox can officially be buried. According to Aftermath producer Dawaun Parker, Dre scrapped that title two years ago and came up with a new one. “I won’t say what the title is ’cause I haven’t seen that online or anything yet,” Parker said.

So, there you have it. You can sleep soundly tonight knowing Detox as a codename can finally be put to rest. Maybe this news can positively mark a new chapter for a Dr. Dre album? We can only hope.
