A couple days after it leaked online, Dr. Dre is moving forward with plans to shoot a music video for “Kush,” the first offering from his long-awaited album Detox featuring Snoop Dogg and Akon. A buff Dre was seen on the downtown Los Angeles set Wednesday, while Snoop looked high as a kite in a Japanese “Sakana-kun” hat. Joseph Kahn previously hinted that he would direct.
“There was a version of [“Kush”] that leaked that I wasn’t really happy about, so we’re gonna go on and push it and put it out because everybody seems to like it,” Dre told Power 106s Big Boy of the smokers’ anthem, which is available now on iTunes. “It’s about weed smoking and I don’t want people to think that that’s what my album is about. This is actually the only song with that type of content in it. It’s not a representation of what the album is.”
