Dr. Dre Finally Announces ‘Detox’ Release Date

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.
