T.I. Reveals What's Holding Back Detox

In Tip's perspective, the reason we have yet to see an OutKast reunion or even Dr. Dre's long-awaited Detox LP is due to the artists' own fear and concerns.

"From me speaking to Dre man I heard him being open to it, I really did. I think his concern is do the kids right now who are young and buying music care enough about an Outkast album for it to make a difference. Which is the same concern that I hear from other people that we all love and respect in this industry like Dr. Dre. I was working with Doc on "Detox" and that was his same concern. Of course we're looking at them like we have such huge admiration for them for what they've done in the past, but they are looking at themselves kind of like 'What do I mean to the young kid of today that is going out there to buy music?' That's what the struggle is." (The Urban Daily)

Game Says That We'll "Never" See Dre's Detox Album

On his latest album Jesus Piece, Game included the bonus track "Dead People," a song that featured an old Dr. Dre beat the two had worked on back during studio sessions for Game's The R.E.D. Album.

The Compton rapper has been part of the Dr. Dre's Aftermath crew since the beginning. When VIBE tried to squeeze out any new info about Dre's long-awaited Detox album, the former Aftermath artist revealed a lot by not really revealing anything.

"Detox, it's like Jesus," says Game. "Will you ever get to see Jesus? It's like a hip-hop Jesus."
In 2011, Dr. Dre released two cuts off the elusive album -- "Kush" and "I Need a Doctor." Things were looking up for fans, who had been paitently waiting for a follow-up to Dre's 2001, which was released in 1999. But, then, it was crickets all over again.

"Dre's a hard guy to please," adds Game, noting Dr. Dre's attention to detail and perfection. "If he doesn't become 100 percent happy, then we'll probably never end up hearing Detox. I'll say never." Game also notes that the success that came with Dr. Dre's headphone company Beats by Dre, also interferes with new Dr. Dre album.

One shouldn't give up hope for a new Dr. Dre album, but perhaps just leave it to surprise. Watch the full interview of Game talking about working with Dr. Dre, who co-signed his latest album, below.
