Good things come to those who wait. So while rap fans continue to clamor over [artist id="1061"]Dr. Dre[/artist]‘s long-awaited but hopefully forthcoming Detox, producer [artist id="1161216"]Swizz Beatz[/artist] says to “chill out.”
The “On to the Next One” producer told MTV News that he has been in the lab with Dre and together the pair has created about four songs. As of now, Swizz isn’t sure which, if any, of their co-creations will end up on Detox, but he has secured one record called “VIP Chillin’ ” for his upcoming Haute Living LP.
“It’s just been a great experience for me, whether they go on the album, whether they don’t go on the album,” Swizz said of his time spent in the studio with Dre and the songs they’ve recorded. ” ‘V.I.P. Chillin’,’ I took that one for myself, but I would gladly give it back to him anytime he wants it back.”
Swizzy is particularly fond of Dre’s performance on the aforementioned song. “He’s energetic. He’s vibing in a way that you’ve never heard him before,” he said. “So even if he don’t put that one particular track out, I’m blessed to have the blessing from him to have it for my album.”
He does have his favorite, but Beatz says that he is confident with any of his and Dre’s songs surfacing. In addition to the work that they did together, Swizz, who has heard at least some of Detox, is supportive of the Doctor and the album’s delay. “Dre has amazing songs and I think everything is worth the wait. He’s a genius, he’s a legend and it’s just no getting around that,” he said. “Everybody just gotta chill out and let that man do his thing. He’s a master at what he does, hands down.”
The Bronx, New York, producer has a message for fans that let their impatience grow into doubt of Dr. Dre ‘s capabilities to produce another rap classic. “Don’t ever count a master out. I’m never counting a person like Dre out.”
