Dr. Dre Finally Announces ‘Detox’ Release Date

By Ronnie Gamble   /   Published 01/18/11

Dr. DreCan it be? Really? Has Detox finally received a release date? Yes, if what Dr. Dre recently said via a Twitvid is right.

After a decade of waiting on the mythical album from the good doctor, it seems as though fans can stop holding their breath and exhale, because a release date has finally been announced.

While Blaze plugged his artist Saigon's project in a recent video clip, he then revealed the news about Dre's Detox by letting Dre, himself, give the word.

"You know what album's coming out on February 15 (Saigon's Greatest Story Never Told), but then guess what else comes out," Just Blaze said, before turning the camera to reveal Dr. Dre, who says: "Bow bow, 4/20, baby. 4/20, I'm comin'."

So, there you have it, Detox is coming on the national weed smokers' holiday!

However, 4/20 is a Wednesday, a day after the traditional Tuesday release in the U.S. When asked why Dre opted to miss a day of the sales week, Just Blaze explained with a tweet.

"We talked about that. [I'm] sure the publicity and hype of the date release would make up for the lost day," he wrote (@JustBlaze).

Despite the video revelation, Dre and/or his label has yet to officially announce the date the traditional ways -- his website, Twitter page (@DrDre), and/or Facebook pages.

  • telepathic

    I don't give a damn about Dre. You don't starve your fans homie. You feed your fans. After time, they move on. Niggas is 15 years older and shit. Fuck off.

  • http://www.meatspin.com Put some kush up in it

    "Give me one more platinum track and Fuck Rap you can have it back!" Dre don't have to do shit. He's expressed his hate with haters claiming "Dre fell off". Who gives a shit? He don't have to make another album if he don't want to. I'm a huge Dre fan, but I'm not anticipating his new album. If/when it drops, I'll be there for him. Besides 'Kush' is a sick ass track. Besides he's got a obstacle with the hip hop industry today. Listen to the unreleased track on youtube 'Syllables' with Dre, Eminem, Jay Z, 50 Cent. They break down the current status of the hip hop world. If that's true, i wouldn't release the album until hip hop was truly was ready.

  • walt752

    shit i been waitinf for this for ever its worth the wait dr dre is the best there ever did this shit

  • UrbanAdvantage

    Everyone needs to understand that the doctor is so sick he only needs to release one album per decade when all other artist have to release multiple albums in a year. Think about it. Chronic 2001 is one of the best albums ever and it's still selling.

  • J-Smooth

    To all you dumbasses. You cannot rush greatness

  • msp

    You guys are idiots. 2 Albums? Did you guys forget about Em, 50, Game...enough said. Dre is the top producer in the game and has innovated hip hop like few others. There's something to be said for albums with 15 songs that are all top notch...unlike these other fake artists putting out 12 albums in 3 years with 3 good tracks. Keep it real.

  • http://unheardradio.com/djgreenhornet/ DJ Green HORNET aka R@$#0D

    just put the album out dre.

  • Joe Momma

    Yea just wait till the album drops and your on his d*ck you hatin ass nobody! Can't believe you even write stupid things like this. The man makes the best rap in the game and you want to come through talkin trash like he deprived you? Be thankful he is even still here making music and we are not stuck with crap like soja boy and Rick ross. Ya dirty bum! Get Ur mind straight retard!

  • fat boy

  • CanUbelivedisNigga

    If Dr.Dre does release Detox, is his fan base still around to listen?

    We all by now are tired of the talk-up and hype of this supposed *SUPER ALBUM*!

    But really Dre? C'mon Son!

  • Bama

    It's gonna be a fuckin' dud. watch.

  • Da Dawn Devil

    Dr. Dre Never not once claimed to be a rapper, he is a producer. so everyone who says that they have been waiting 10+ years to hear something from dre need to relize that he has been putting out a whole lot of music, in that time period. This album is one of the most anticipated albums of all time, it will prolly sell over 3 million in the first week. so think about it, dre is doing something right. and this goes to all the fans out there who think, ohh shit the best rapper is the one who puts out an album every year and a mixtape every other week. that dosnt mean talent that means that you are rushing your work, dre is a perfectionist. any real musician would understand where he is coming from

  • bigstevedoggfromtheLBC!!

    DRE AM WAITING FOR YA!! cant wait till 4/20 fuck all these haters!!!!

  • Vbaby

    Seriously, people are real stupid if they think dre owes u some sort of explanation. He is not only a GREAT rapper, but he started all the greats from today, he is a producer, and a rapper, and he owes none of u shit. If u really call urself a fan, u wont care when its released, and appreciate it when it is here, cus im sure, it will be the sickest album out, not like those wannabes who have only a one hit wonder, or a couple good songs on the entire album. Its a bout quality within quantity with dre, and u cant rush greatness! he gives his 100% into every track, and does not put his shit out, untill its 100% quality for his fans. so for u people that claim o u used to be fans, u, no, and u dont deserve all the hard work he has put out into it anyways, so go on and keep walkin, u nobody!

  • dr. deandre

    yall need to understand, Dre has soo many other artists to do beats for, and along the last 10 yrs he has been giving his best work to his up and coming artists so they can have hot beats to blow up to... everything good that he has made since 2000 that would have been good enough to go on his detox album, has been given to his other artists. Dre is very very very picky with the beats and songs he puts on his own albums so he has been savin the best for last. Plus yall gotta understand his son died a little while back and that completely screwed him up and he hasnt been in the creative state of mind in a little while... now that he is getting past that, he feels its his time to finally drop the last album of his dynasty. he has been building something that will last once he finally leaves for good. over the years. just solidifying the fact he is and always be one of the greats in this industry.

  • T J

    obviously ur no dre fan. 2 albums of complete gold. Also, everybody who's a dre fan will wait till that day. Detox will sound amazing through my powerbeats. Complete genius dre.

  • Peacenluv7

    Dr Dre killed hip hop ,everboby is waiting for Detox man listen , Dr Dre can work with people who can rhyme like snoop an others, but when it comes to people who got lyrics or talent he sucks ,look at the firm with Nas,Foxy ,Nature, Az and Coremega that shit was wack, also look at the  song with LL cool Jay ,again as i said man listen how do you not work with Michael Jackson when he was alive or how do you let Rakim go, Rakim the lyrical master. All the bullshit dre been through with gangster rap ,his son and Suge Knight, him and stupid ass Ice Cube go back to that same ole gangster shit, Grow the fuck up ,How can you do a song Been there done that, its like a dog going back to its own vomit. If Detox do come out its the same ol shit just new beats, then dres dumb ass will say i only like to work with new artist, what an idoit. Real hip hop heads want to hear you and Rakim and dont tell him to kill on music leave that gangster bullshit alone. PEACE OUT
