Dr Dre & 50Cent 'Looking For New Talent

50 Cent and Dr. Dre are on the lookout for up-and-coming talent.

Although Fif's relationship with last protege The Game ended up going sour, he's determined not to let it put him off discovering new stars in-the-making with the help of Dre.

"Dre and I were actually talking about a new artist, working together on a new project." 50 Cent explained.

"I said, 'Just because we had a car accident, that doesn't mean we're not going to drive again - it just means we had an accident with that one.' He laughed at me."

"He said, 'All right. I'll give it a try,' because he was unsure about how I would feel about helping with another new artist."

"Obviously Dre can create the best possible production for the artist and groom him to the right space. But going to introduce him to the general public would be something you want 50 to go do."

This month sees 50 Cent releasing his new album 'Before I Self Destruct'.

Game Defends Dre's "Detox" Delay - "I Know It Seem Like He Be Taking Forever"

Former Aftermath artist Game has vouched for Dr. Dre's long-delayed Detox album and said the renowned producer's upcoming release will be worth the wait.

According to Game, Doc's track record speaks for itself like his previous releases, The Chronic and The Chronic 2001.

"Man, I can't even describe [2001]... I would just say it's a classic West Coast album but it was world-renowned and it had an international appeal, like who from where didn't f*ck with that album?," Game asked in an interview. "With 2001 he just went back to do what he do best man and that's just trying to create the sun, moon, stars and Earth in seven days, man. The thing that stands out to me about 2001 is the same thing that stood out to me about Chronic -- Dre is a perfectionist and no matter when he coughs up an album, B, they be exactly what you need. I know it seem like he be taking forever with these albums but if you think about the time that passed between the Chronic and 2001, I think Detox is just about due. So it's not about him just making us wait, it's his format."

50 insists he won't share bars with Game on Dre's album.

50 Cent and Dr. Dre helped Game concoct a classic album on The Documentary. And although things between Fif and Game went sour, the G-Unit General said he's open to working with Dre again to break another MC.

"We were actually talking about a new artist, working together on a new project," 50 Cent told MTV News. "I said, 'Just because we had a car accident, that doesn't mean we're not going to drive again — it just means we had an accident with that one.' He laughed at me. He said, 'All right. I'll give it a try,' because he was unsure about how I would feel about helping with [another new artist]," he continued. "Obviously Dre can create the best possible production for the artist and groom him to the right space. But going to introduce him to the general public would be something you want 50 to go do."

Since their falling out post-Documentary, 50 has vowed never to work with Game again. And even though Game has reunited with Dre for the Detox LP as well as his own R.E.D. Album, 50 says he wouldn't consider jumping on a record featuring Game.

"No," Fif said flatly when asked what his response would be to Dre's request for a reunion collaboration. "No, I wouldn't do it. I'd be on a record, on a song, on the [Detox] album, but not on that record [with Game]. That's not making a song, that's making an event — things for people to talk about. ... So there's a verse there that you think would be great for both of us, I just say, 'Erase his verse and put something in better than that.' "

50 briefly addressed the role Dr. Dre played in his and Game's feud on Before I Self Destruct's "So Disrespectful."

"I said, 'I gave Game hits, he told me to suck di--/ Start screamin' Westside and Dre ain't say sh--!' " 50 recited.

"It was an absolute true statement and Dre approved because it was true," 50 continued. "He heard the record and was like, 'Whoa! Out the park with that.' He likes it, he doesn't care. Creatively, you're right, 'cause he didn't say anything when that took place — or not anything that the public heard."

Game Working With Dre Again

Game talks about his R.E.D. album.  He then went on to talk about working with Dr Dre. "I'm back in with Dre everyday going hard in the studio doing the little stuff, working on Detox with him and he's working on The R.E.D. Album with me. It's just, we got a good feeling out here...I did my last two albums without Dre and even though, I just did it on my own man. When I talked to him, he [was like] I've been doing a good job and he took a listen and I did my thing. I learned well, my time at Aftermath was spent well, so getting back in, that old feeling came back. The chemistry is crazy, I got a lot of love for that dude and that's why I never really disrespected him or really went at Aftermath, I only did what I had to do to survive man, but I got love for dude and we back in grindin' man."

Dre Partners With Best Buy To Launch 'Club Beats'

Big-box retailer Best Buy hopes to become the premier DJ destination in the near future, partnering with Monster Cable and Beats Electronics by Dr. Dre headphones to launch a new in-store "Club Beats" section of its store.

In-store sections for DJ equipment will be available, building on last year’s drive to add sections devoted to music instruments. Club Beats will sell a variety of specialty-audio products as well, including Apple products such as the iPod. Interactive stations will be available in select stores, for customers to try out the gear before purchase.

Founded by hip-hop artist Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, Beats Electronics was selected because of its commitment to giving the average listener a professional-quality listening experience through their headphones. Monster Cable, meanwhile, promises "make music sound better" in its ads.

"Dre and I feel that Best Buy and Brian Dunn's commitment to the quality of sound in music, along with their aggressive promotion and marketing of popular culture, makes this the perfect place to launch Club Beats," said Iovine.

Best Buy is launching the concept in 300 stores. Seven locations will include bigger, more thoroughly comprehensive retail areas that Best Buy is using to kick off the debut; a Miami kickoff will feature local DJs, a Richfield, MN, event will include remix-hoppers LMFAO.

Best Buy sees a growing interest not only in DJing, particularly with the recent release of DJ Hero, but also in the concern for the sound quality of music.

"Entertainment has long been the heart and soul of Best Buy. Our customers have always looked to us as a resource for music in a variety of formats," said Brian Dunn, Best Buy's CEO. "With Club Beats, the latest in sound quality and music technology will be available to all of our customers who want to bring music to life in a fresh way and unleash their inner DJ."

Best Buy hopes their new DJ-focused offering will corner the developing market in mainstream retail. "It may not be simple to find these products in a mainstream environment-either you have to know what you need, or you have to talk to someone who is in the industry," said Wendy Fritz, svp of merchandising for mobility for Best Buy. "What we're trying to say is 'hey you can do this,' and when they come into the store our Blue Shirts can say 'these are the three or four products you need to get started.'"

50 Cent Talks About Working With Dre On Detox

50 Cent recently talked about his studio relationship with Dr Dre and what he has done for Dre's highly delayed and upcoming "Detox" album. According to the G-Unit leader, Dr Dre used him for a portion of his recording process on the album back in 2007. "I don't even know what's going on with the Detox," Fif admitted. "The last [time] I spoke to Dre, he was actualy not mixing my records because he was working on The Detox and then we finally got him to mix the records and you know, I think he's back in here producing records for it but I haven't heard pretty much I think it was five or six songs that he actually recorded but that was a long time ago. He probably has a lot more now but I've been recording for The Detox two years ago."

Album delayed for Dre and Game collaberation - But which album?

Game is following doctor’s orders. The Compton MC has decided to push his album back until next year because Dr. Dre needs more time to finish production.

He took to Twitter to announce that he was delaying his fourth album The R.E.D. Album until 2010, attributing the move to his label and one highly-esteemed doctor. “Album is Officially pushed back. says Interscope, so that I can finish wit Dre without having to rush him, myself or the album,” he wrote.

The project, most recently scheduled for December 15, will now be released two months later on February 16. “R.E.D. album’s new release is 2/16/10,” he tweeted. “If for some reason the date changes I will holla at y’all . had to push it back so that me & Dre can wrap it up the right way !!!”

The delay comes a week after the rapper released his buzz single, “Krazy” featuring Gucci Mane and Timbaland, and lead single, the Cool & Dre-produced “Big Money,” on the Internet.

Rakim talks giving some materials for Detox.

HardknockTV took a few to speak with Rakim as he reiterated the fact that creatively, they were in two completely different places and although no longer under him, he was able to leave Dre with a gift for the future.

“The last I spoke to him, I had did something for him maybe like a year ago when he was just starting to put together his album. I did something on one of the tracks, but I don't know which songs is making his album.”

According to Rakim, some of the joints they did together have already been leaked.

Which concept for Detox would you like to hear?

A new poll has been created (look right). Which concept for Detox would you like to hear? The choices are:

West coast sound - similar to Chronic and 2001.

Brand new unique sound - just like he reinvents his sound and sets trends. What Bishop Lamont describes as 'UFO technology'.

Hitman storytelling concept - Concept of 'through the eyes of the a Hitman'. Sort of like a Hip Hop musical, where each guest on the album is an actual character.

This poll has been reset due to an error.
