Dr Dre To Release New Album 'Detox' April 2013

Last year

Legendary hip hop artist Dr. Dre is set to finally unveil his long-awaited third solo album ‘Detox’ after naming the 20th of April as a date to watch.

The rapper/producer has been working on the project for over a decade, but he has suffered a string of setbacks and had to scrap a collaboration with Jay-Z, titled ‘Under Pressure’, from the tracklist after part of the song leaked onto the internet. He then had to rush-release another tune, ‘Kush’, in 2010 due to similar issues.

However, it now appears he's gearing up for the big release after featuring in a brief video with producer pal Just Blaze.

In the 17-second clip, shot on a camera phone and posted on RapHD.com, Blaze teases fans with news about a special release next year, asking fans, "Guess what else comes out (in 2013)?" before turning the lens on Dre, who says, "4/20 baby, 4/20, I'm comin'!"

The date seems unlikely as it falls on a Saturday, and traditional U.S. releases hit retailers on a Tuesday, but it's the closest rap fans have come to getting an official announcement in recent years.

‘Detox’ is the follow-up to Dre's last album, ‘2001’, which was released in 1999.
