In a recent interview with Revolt, DJ Quik went on to talk about numerous topics, one of which included Dr. Dre’s unreleased Detox album.
Quik provided some insight as to why Dre may be hesitant to release the highly-anticipated project.
“I worked on Detox,” Quik said. “Detox is a super smart-ass piece of music, but it’s all music, you know what I mean? That’s what could be the stumbling block for the record. Because it’s all music, and you got so many people to please. If you’re off with one, it won’t be a classic record. So, I understand Dre’s concerns about putting it out. But, some of the tracks I heard, oh my God, get the f*ck out of here… Sound-wise, it was gonna be better than Chronic 2001, and idea-wise.”
Dr. Dre has not compromised his sound for the current climate of music. He’s still proving that he can drop tracks at his own time and not be subjected to the rapid release dates of 2018.
