Dr. Dre Talks Detox, Kush, Kendrick Lamar, etc (Audio)

blame it on Shake November 16, 2010

Seems that Kanye got another classic rating…

Dr. Dre chops it up with Big Boy about the future of Detox, the leaked Kush record (says this is the only record with that subject matter on the album), a possible tour, Beats by Dre, wanting to work with Kendrick Lamar (hell yes!) and more.

And as you can see, Dre lands the latest cover of XXL (coming next month, or so they say… I expect it to finally drop 10 years after the original date). Hit the jump for some choice quotes on Detox.

Andre is on the cover of XXL for the first time in some five-plus years (was the cover with him, Em and 50 the last one? I can’t remember), and vows – per usual – to drop Detox next year.

Dre has been teasing fans with the disc’s release since first announcing Detox in April 2002 but, as he explains in the XXL cover story, it’s been Dre himself that has been the cause of the many years of delay. The beat maestro, who turned 45 this past February, says, “The only part that has been pushing me back is just the fact that I’m getting older, and certain things to talk about… But I can incorporate other artists, new artists with this record, to say some of the things I won’t say. It’s been a little tussle in that area also, just because of age and being able to identify with the younger audience.”
