"Well, actually, Jay-Z's just been in the studio doing some writing. Hopefully I'll get him to perform on the record. Jay, come holler! I'm just pushing forward, trying to get it right."
-Dr. Dre, opening the door for the Hottest MC in the Game to come in and drop a verse on Dre's long-awaited album Detox. The album, which the producer hopes to complete in time for a release some time in 2010, will finish the trilogy that began with his breakthrough album The Chronic back in 1992. So far, very little music has been heard, save for the track that made its way into a Dr. Pepper commercial and a few leaked session tracks from earlier this year. But possible collaborators on Detox include R. Kelly, Snoop Dogg, the Game, Drake, Lil Wayne and now Jigga. In between sessions in his lab, Dre has been hard at work perfecting his Beats by Dre headphones and a custom laptop designed for music playback.
