Dr. Dre got hopes up last night after hinting that his long-awaited album Detox would finally be released on April 20, but don’t break out the bubbly just yet.
The denial belies Dre’s statement in the clip, which seemed to be referencing Detox. “4/20, baby. 4/20, I’m comin’,” said Dre, meaning that the album would hit stores on a Wednesday instead of the traditional Tuesday. Producer Just Blaze, who posted the widespread video, even addressed the unconventional release date. “We talked about that. [I’m] sure the publicity and hype of the date release would make up for the lost day,” he tweeted.
While Detox is seemingly without a solid street date, Interscope is planning to drop the Alex Da Kid-produced “I Need a Doctor” featuring Eminem as the follow-up to “Kush.”
