V Exclusive! Game Says That We’ll “Never” See Dr. Dre’s ‘Detox’ Album
On his latest album Jesus Piece, Game included the bonus track “Dead People,” a song that featured an old Dr. Dre beat the two had worked on back during studio sessions for Game’s The R.E.D. Album.
The Compton rapper has been part of the Dr. Dre’s Aftermath crew since the beginning. When VIBE tried to squeeze out any new info about Dre’s long-awaited Detox album, the former Aftermath artist revealed a lot by not really revealing anything.
“Detox, it’s like Jesus,” says Game. “Will you ever get to see Jesus? It’s like a hip-hop Jesus.”
In 2011, Dr. Dre released two cuts off the elusive album — “Kush” and “I Need a Doctor.” Things were looking up for fans, who had been paitently waiting for a follow-up to Dre’s 2001, which was released in 1999. But, then, it was crickets all over again.
“Dre’s a hard guy to please,” adds Game, noting Dr. Dre’s attention to detail and perfection. “If he doesn’t become 100 percent happy, then we’ll probably never end up hearing Detox. I’ll say never.” Game also notes that the success that came with Dr. Dre’s headphone company Beats by Dre, also interferes with new Dr. Dre album.
One shouldn’t give up hope for a new Dr. Dre album, but perhaps just leave it to surprise. Watch the full interview of Game talking about working with Dr. Dre, who co-signed his latest album, below.
