Dr Dre is a 'slave driver'

A RESPECTED rap producer says hip-hop king Dr Dre is a hard taskmaster who drives collaborators to tears.
DJ Quik, a Los Angeles producer and rapper visiting Melbourne this week, is working on Dre’s much-anticipated, much-delayed album, Detox.

The album, Dre’s first release in 10 years, might never see the light of day.

“I don’t believe Dr Dre will release that album,” Quik said.

“I think he’s over it and rightfully so. He doesn’t have to prove to anybody that he can still make a hot record.”

 Quik revealed Dr Dre has studied Chopin, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky to inspire tracks on Detox.

But Quik said working with Dre, whose solo hits and collaborations with NWA, Snoop Dogg and Eminem have sold 150 million records, is stressful.


“He’s a slave driver in the studio. He’ll make you cry,” Quik says. “You have to be perfect to work with him. If you not, you want be in the studio, period.

“He’s totally, totally, totally mean when it comes to production.

“He’ll work diligently on one part for hours upon hours upon hours, only to scrap it if he doesn’t feel it’s addictive enough.

“He almost a perfectionist to a fault.”

  4. Detox is never coming out and I hope it doesnt. The name and concept of the album is so outdated now and the idea he had of a hip hop opera has been done already its kinda just a burnt out project. He should just come out with some left field type project out of nowhere like he always does. All his previous projects just came out with no promotion or hype and were classics. The best albums any artist makes are ones when there having a good time with it and you can tell.

  8. So detox has become an impossible record to make?We haven't heard anything from Dre though. It would be a shame Detox seemed so close! At least he could give the beats to Kendrick Lamar.

  9. Dj quik gets really frustrated when it comes to detox. He cant get dres metods and is really annoyed. Think he has joined the long list of poeple who have given up hope.

  10. Is this the end of Detox? Or is Quick playing with us. I don't think DJ Quick would do that though unless it was part of a plan for promotion somehow. Bad news!

  11. He's just frustrated! This album is mythical, does it exist? One person will say it exists and will be released while another person will say he's scrapped it. II pressume it's still being worked on judging by the fact that the last statement dre made he said he's getting back into it.

  13. If this is true, then Dre should just give his fans some closure. Stoping giving them false hope

  14. he thinks "hes done with it" because dre hasnt called him. I believe that dre has the music but is missing the lyrics. This is the reason why ross, wayne, annd meek mill have been in the studio with dre.

  15. Perfectionist my ass, if he's so keen on making his music perfect then we wouldn't have had "I Need a Doctor" or "Kush", those songs are far from perfect. I guess Dre just gave up because he knows he doesn't have the gold touch anymore.

  19. I heard Dj Quick say that he thinks Dre should scrap Detox, that was a few years ago hes still being negative about it. The D.O.C. said Dre is getting what he has been looking for and it might soon be time to celebrate. I'm still positive it's coming out and it gonna be a cool record so fuck DJ Quick.

  24. Kendrick just got singed last week and has millions of fans. Slim the mobster has been signed for years and has no fans lol. slim is toast nobody cares. Plus Kendrick is the only chance for detox to drop. if his album is a classic and he becomes a superstar then detox will drop from the momentum like eminem and 2001.
