Dr Dre has revealed he’s been working in the studio with Donda 2 co-writer Fat Money.
Several images have surfaced on social media of the two cooking up music together over the past week. Many have speculated they’ve been working on the perenially delayed Detox, which was first announced to fans 20 years ago.
Furthermore, Dre was also recently spotted in the studio with Snoop Dogg, and hidden in the background was a hint at Detox. On the whiteboard behind the duo, the title appeared to be written alongside a tracklist below.
Snoop shared a photo from the session and captioned the post, ‘The Chronic is bac Home’ in reference to Dre’s debut 1992 album.
Speaking about Detox in 2015 on his Beats 1 radio show ‘The Pharmacy’, and explained he’d decided to scrap the project because it “wasn’t good”.
He added: “This is something you’re not gonna hear many artists say: the reason that Detox didn’t come out was because I didn’t like it,” he told listeners.
“It wasn’t good. The record, it just wasn’t good… I mean seriously, I worked my ass off on it, but I didn’t think I did a good enough job. I couldn’t do that to my fans, I couldn’t do that to myself, to be honest.”
