To say [artist id="1061"]Dr. Dre[/artist] is far from pleased that his music has been leaked would be an understatement. On Wednesday, a song labeled “Could Have Been You” from the Detox recording sessions appeared on the Internet. The record features [artist id="10489"]R. Kelly[/artist], [artist id="860639"]50 Cent[/artist] and Dre’s upcoming Aftermath artist [artist id="2034814"]Bishop Lamont[/artist] — each man tells the tale of a girl who they had designs on, but underestimated their ability to make her happy. Eventually, the men move on to bigger and better things.
Bishop scoffs, “Think about the games you played, the lies you told when you asking me how I could be so cold?/ And I’m wondering how you could be so bold?”
Kelly’s disposition doesn’t soften any on the chorus. He sings, “The reason why you didn’t get picked, ’cause you got your nose up your a– smelling your sh–/ But tonight you met your match, ’cause I be smelling my sh– too/ Now how you like that?”
50 Cent rhymes about a woman from his early days who shunned him because she didn’t believe he would make a great life for them.
“You supposed to be sure, baby, you was confused/ I had a thang for ya, had a ring for ya/ A house, car, kids and a pet name for ya.”
Dr. Dre’s label Interscope has yet to issue a comment, however a source close to Dre’s camp tells us the legendary producer was expecting the song to be on Detox and is furious with the tune being leaked so early, especially since it wasn’t mixed and mastered. Several of the Web sites that posted the song Wednesday have since taken it down — according to another source, they caught serious heat from Dre’s camp.
On Monday, a Dr. Dre, 50 Cent and Eminem track called “Crack a Bottle” also leaked. There still has not been a clear statement issued on where that song will officially land.
