With the new album dropping August 7, many have questioned whatever happened to Dre’s long-awaited project Detox. Dre finally spoke of the never to be done album, stating,
“I didn’t like it. It wasn’t good. The record, it just wasn’t good. … I worked my ass off on it, and I don’t think I did a good enough job.”
Fellow N.W.A member, Ice Cube also stated a planned N.W.A. reunion tour might partake.
