Dr. Dre has broken his silence over his upcoming “Detox” album. “I’m just now, over the last couple of months, starting to feel that it’s going to be right and it’s something I can be proud of and everybody is going to love it,” said Dre. “In a perfect world, I’m shooting for a November or December release.” “Detox” has been the subject of speculation since Dre first hinted at the project in 2002. He has been working on the album, which will be released on his Aftermath/Interscope Records label, on and off for four years. He says he has assembled a new crew of musicians and the beats will be heavily driven by live drums. “We have an entirely new thing going with the drums that’s incredible and we’re still developing that.” All “the usual suspects” will make guest appearances, including Snoop Dogg, Nas, Jay-Z and Lil’ Wayne.

As long as the wait for the upcoming album has been, Dre says it’ll be even longer before there’s another one. “I’m going to put this record out, promote it, tour and then become a hermit. I’m going to stay in the studio and produce.” Dre added that he isn’t interested in producing albums for established artists. Dre, who previously helped launch Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent and The Game, says his goal is to find who’s next. “All I want to do is sit in the studio with that person for a year and try to create another masterpiece.”
