50 Cent talks Dr. Dre ‘Detox’ Delay
50 Cent also had some advice for the legendary West Coast producer regarding the long awaited project.
Dre’s third album has been in the running since 1999, when he dropped The Chronic 2001. Fans have been given plenty of false hope of a release date too, with Dre releasing a number of singles for the project.
In a recent interview with WGCI’s The Morning Riot, 50 Cent gave his explanation for Dre’s repeated stalling, and added an insight into the Good Doctor’s relationship with his own studio material.
“He been working on that project for so long that he falls in love with music, and then he falls out of love with it,” Fif explained. “He’s got a lot of good stuff playing in the studio and it comes in and out, plus that.”
50 also revealed that he had given Dre some words of advice on the subject of Detox.
“You know what I said to him? I said, you don’t have to change anything. Because the period of time you haven’t put out. Like Sade, it reminds me of the record that I’d like from him. And I’m like, yeah, play that, that’s the new one. And it feels like the last one. So Dre, he doesn’t have to create a formula because he was gone so long that if he gives us something that feels like The Chronic, we’d be absolutely happy.”
