50 Cent Talks Detox

Perhaps a sign of things to come, more and more artists are speaking about their role in Dr. Dre’s alleged upcoming album, Detox. Possibly the most anticipated album in Hip Hop history, the latest artist to speak on the long-awaited album, which is to be released in November or December, is none other than 50 Cent.

“I recorded material with Dr. Dre for the Detox,” said 50 to MTV News. “It’s great. I want it back. I want the records back,” joked Fif.

50 did indicate, however, that he wants leftover material Dre has. “He has the music. It’s right there in the computer. I stop by [his studio] every time and get something that adds something significant to my project each time [I’m about to put a record out]. And I spend three or four days there. To me, he’s the best producer in the game.

“When I walk in the studio, I record the first [beat] that comes on regardless if I think it’s a hit record or not,” 50 continued. “We get in work mode, get comfortable and go through the material that’s in the computer. Dre always has hit records. Sometimes, artists that need producers, they need someone to create a direction for them musically. I need the jewels he’s just got laying around. He don’t gotta tell me what to do with it. All he has to do is say, ‘Track six.’ Or, ‘Go to track eight.’ He’ll have hits playing there. You just have to get in and get them.”

It’s 50’s guess – just as it is anyone else’s – as to when Dre will finally deem the album ready for release. “Hopefully he’ll get it done and put it out,” he said. “I’m waiting for the Detox. All I can say is, Dr. Dre is the best producer in my eyes. Just the consistency over the years. … He knows what he wants. He’s such a perfectionist that it becomes difficult for him to put it out.”
