Dr. Dre's been working on his Detox album since 2002.
If that wasn't enough of an indication it was never going to come, he seemingly closed the door completely on the idea in the HBO documentary The Defiant Ones.
"I never had any connection with [Detox], it didn't work." Dre said. "I'm never gonna do that again."
Or maybe not.
ESPN's Chris Hayes spotted the Good Doctor at the Golden State Warriors practice today and asked him about Detox's status.
"I'm working on a couple songs right now. We'll see," Dre said.
Do you still have any interest in the project?

I asked Dr. Dre if Detox is permanently shelved and he replied, “I’m working on a couple songs right now. We’ll see.”— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) January 9, 2018
