Dr. Dre Departs from Past with ‘Detox’

Dr. Dre

Those expecting another Chronic 2001 from Dr. Dre are in for disappointment. According to super-producer Scott Storch, the rap icon is avoiding repeating history with Detox.

“There’s quite a few records that are really amazing,” Dre’s longtime production partner and friend Scott Storch told DJ Skee in a recent interview. Storch collaborated with him on The Chronic 2001.

But don’t expect the same sound as Dre’s classic 2001 album. The beatmakers made sure not to include tracks that were too reminiscent of the past. “I think people will be pleasantly surprised when they hear it. It’s definitely a departure from a lot of the stuff Dre has done and the stuff Dre and I have done in the past. It’s a hybrid,” he revealed.

The long-awaited project is nearing completion. “I think he’s looking for like three more records,” Storch said, while joking, “So that should take about 400 records to get those three. He’s got pretty high standards.”

Additionally, the hitmaker confirmed that he co-produced the lead single “Under Pressure” featuring Jay-Z.

    Personally I don’t think it matters if the stuff he puts out sounds like the Chronic … that was a decade ago … most current rap fans don’t even know what was on the Chronic and what kind of sound was on that … dude just needs to put something out doesn’t matter if it’s at the same time as Em or not just do it

    That picture really shows how he aged in the last 10 years

    I agree with Frenchy1011. One because the Chronic’s sound is unknown to new fans (its a different story however if he is not doing it for fans but for his artistic evolution) and second because, and correct me if I am wrong here, but aren’t classics supposed to be timeless? What’s wrong if it sounds like his previous two albums? Isn’t that the idea? To make timeless classic music?

    He just needs to put something out. With all of this hype, he will end up letting down about 50% of the people who listen to it. It’s getting to an “eye-roll” point now.
    Sade left for 10 years and came back hugely because they didn’t allow pushbacks and false hype ruin the product. They just came back out of nowhere and gave their fans what they wanted–which had elements of their past hits.
    Dre should be careful..

    It’s 2010 so Detox gotta sound different than Chronic 2001.
