Dr. Dre Plans to Take a Break from Music

Detox will have to wait. Dr. Dre is planning to take a brief break from recording, once again delaying his long-awaited album.

“I’m gonna just wrap it up for a minute because I’ve been working on music for 27 years now and the longest I’ve ever been out of the studio in 27 years has been two weeks,” the hip-hop icon told FADER TV.

But that doesn’t mean he’s hanging up the mic. “I’m never gonna stop music. It’s like air to me,” he added. “I’m gonna take a little bit of a break, enjoy some time with the family, until I get that itch to get back in.”

While Detox is not on his priority list, the business mogul has been spending his time promoting his Beats by Dr. Dre headphones and working on developing his artists Slim the Mobster and Kendrick Lamar.
