Dr. Dre hints at April 20 release for 'Detox' album, but...
Image Credit: Frederick M. Brown/Getty ImagesYesterday producer Just Blaze put out a Twitvid clip that got the online hip-hop community grinning from ear to ear. In it, he and iconic producer/rapper Dr. Dre hint at there being a confirmed release date for Dre's oft-delayed Detox album. "Bow bow! 4-20, baby. I'm coming!" Dre yells during his brief shot. "You might just see a unicorn this year, too" jokes Blaze after. Dre was obviously talking about Detox, right? in 2011? It's safe to assume as much, I guess. But there's one problem.
Check what Dre's rep had to say about Detox's release date after the jump.
One, records typically are released on Tuesdays. And April 20, 2011 is a Wednesday. Exceptions can been made. But that isn't likely without an unforeseen circumstance, like the album leaking early. So maybe April 19? Nope. Dre's rep just confirmed to us that "there isn't a confirmed release date yet." That doesn't necessarily mean April 19 or 20 isn't the day. It just means they don't know yet, which brings us back to square one. A drop date around that period would make sense, though–April 20 being the weed-associated day it is. Let's not forget the title of Dre's classic debut set was The Chronic. And though he denies Detox will be filled with drug-related references, its first single is "Kush." So let the speculation continue!
Do you guys think Detox will come out this spring? Or like Just joked, will you see a unicorn in your front yard before you have a copy of Dre's new album in your hand? Let us know.
