Dr. Dre started recording The Detox in 2003 and it was slated for a 2004 release. It's now 2008 and The Detox is slowly becoming more of a joke than an anticipated album. In an interview with USA Today he stated that he's just becoming comfortable with the tracks on the album, being the perfectionist that he is. Afterall, The Chronic was an album that raised the bar for producers at that time. On the album will be collaborations with rappers like Nas, Jay-Z, and even Lil' Wayne. He's "shooting for November or December" so you know that means 2009.
