Eleven years ago, Dr. Dre released his long-awaited 2001 album and promised to release another album soon. When the actual year, 2001, approached, the title of the album was revealed to be Detox. The album was then set for a 2002 release date, but was pushed back for the emergence of 50 Cent.
For the past ten years, Detox has been a mythical album talked about but never heard. In 2008, there were rumors of Dr. Dre working with Lil Wayne and T.I. for the album. Rumor had it the album would come out in 2009. Late in 2009, Snoop Dogg revealed he was working on the album and Game joined in.
The result of the collaboration led to Game returning to his former home, Aftermath Entertainment. Because Game was working on an album, Dr. Dre postponed Detox to work on it. Now, Dre says the album will be released sometime next year and there will be no more push-backs. But, there is one catch... this will be Dr. Dre's final album.
Following this release, Dr. Dre is back to producing for other artists and only producing aside from running the Aftermath label.
