In a recent brief interview with ESPN reporter Chris Haynes, Dr. Dre confirmed that he is still working on new music. When asked if we would ever see Detox (the project that Dr. Dre supposedly dropped after the release of Compton: A Soundtrack), Dre responded with "I'm working on a couple songs right now. We'll see."
While we love to hear that Dr. Dre is back in the studio (it's been far too long since we hear a proper Dre drumbeat), it does bring into question whether or not he actually dropped the project at all, or if it's being pushed in a whole new direction.
Then again, reporting via Tweet's isn't exactly the most reputable way to distribute information (ahem. . .Trump. . .). We'll just have to wait and see if there's any validity to what Haynes heard from Dre. We just hope we don't have to wait 15 more years to hear it.
You can find a link to Chris Haynes tweet below, as well as a link to HBO's Defiant Ones, a documentary focusing on the relationship between Dr. Dre and Interscope co-founder Jimmy Iovine.
