Dr. Dre Announces ‘Detox’ Release Date

Dr. Dre

Dr. Dre fans can finally exhale. After a decade of waiting for Detox, the hip-hop icon has announced his album’s release date in a rather anticlimactic way. Producer Just Blaze posted a video of himself in the studio with the Doc. While Blaze plugged his artist Saigon’s project, Dre revealed the date many doubted would ever come. “4/20, baby. 4/20, I’m comin’,” said The Chronic rapper, referring to April 20, the pot smokers’ holiday.

You may notice that 4/20 is a Wednesday, a day later than the traditional Tuesday release in the U.S. When asked why Dre opted to miss a day of the sales week, Just Blaze responded on Twitter, saying, “We talked about that. [I'm] sure the publicity and hype of the date release would make up for the lost day.”

    Hype? Huh, you mean that thing which peaked years ago?

    I think this will dissapoint many, as everyone’s expectations should now be beyond the stars after the long wait.

    I am glad to see that Dr. Dre has chosen a release date for Detox. It still remains to to be seen if this release date stays the same. I hope Detox turns out to be a classic, but I have a feeling that Detox is going to be a good album, and not a great album. If Detox would had came out 7 years ago, there would be no doubt that Detox would be a classic. Hip hop now days are different from 7 years ago. It feels like the hype for Detox is not as big as it was years ago. I will be checking for Detox when it comes out, but I have a feeling that it won’t be a classic compare to Dre’s previous albums.

    I will believe it when I see it but I was actually thinking why release it on 4/20 if Kush truly is 1 of the few smoker type tracks on Detox like Dre said it would be? Can’t wait for Feb. 15th & The Greatest Story Never Told to finally be told though!

    Dope, it’s 4/20 and Detox still hasn’t come out yet. I know that reports said that it wasn’t supposed to come out now, but at this point I’m beginning to believe that one of the most hyped up albums ever will be one of the most dissapointing. Unless he has a couple of the best songs ever, he should just release it already. It’s not like the hype is still being built up about it, now people are just becoming disinterested and fed up with not only not getting an album, but not even a release date yet, implying that Detox is still a long way away. Well, time to go blaze.
