Perhaps unsurprisingly Dr. Dre explained in a recent interview that the his long-awaited ‘Detox’ album shouldn’t be expected until 2010.
The news hardly comes as a surprise after a number of setbacks and West Coast rapper The Game’s revelation last week that he had been in the studio working on the project with Dre and Snoop Dogg.
When asked what he had been working on recently, the iconic super producer maintained, ‘Only my album that I’ve been working on for the last 10 years, that’s it, Detox record.’
Dre mentioned that he hoped to have the project finished by the end of the year so it could hit stores next year.
‘Detox’ was until recently still expected to drop in the fourth quarter of 2009, although many industry professionals and fans alike had doubted that for some time.
The elusive album, which was officially announced five years ago, has actually been in progress for almost ten years.
