Dr. Dre’s Rep Refutes 4/20 ‘Detox’ Date

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.

A rep for the West Coast veteran tells MTV News that the viral video wasn’t referring to the release date for the mythical project. No further explanation of the 4/20 date was provided.

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.”
