The news came on Dre’s Beats 1 radio show, The Pharmacy, and he delivered the artwork via a Twitter post, because it’s 2015.
Not so coincidentally, the biopic about that little group he started called N.W.A, the F. Gary Gray directed Straight Outta Compton, is in theaters August 14. Inspired by his work on the film, the project features Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Jill Scott, Ice Cube and more across 16 tracks.
It was Cube who first dropped dime that Dre was releasing an album. As for Detox, Dre says scrapped the project because it just wasn’t up to his standards.
