Dr. Dre: A Psychic Told Me I Don’t Have To Come Back If I Don’t Want To

(AllHipHop News) We may have finally found out the reason Dr. Dre has been stalling the release of Detox for over 10 years. In a recent feature with Esquire, Dr. Dre talks outlawing his own music in his house, reincarnation and how 5 seconds resulted in one of the most infectious Hip Hop choruses ever.

Dr. Dre’s third (and presumably final) album Detox has been anticipated, scrapped, finished and non-existent since the mid-00’s and Dre may have shed light as to its stalled released. After admitting that he believes not only in reincarnation but that he himself has “lived quite a few lives”, Dre says a meeting with an anonymous psychic at a party made him rethink his career:

She did past-life regression. She started telling me things that I really believe. She’s telling me that I’ve been back several times before. ‘This is the last time you have to come back. You don’t have to come back anymore if you don’t want to.’ I was taking it as entertainment. But something inside me was saying, Hmmm.

Two years ago, Snoop Dogg informed NME Magazine that Detox was “almost finished” around the time Dre’s Eminem and Skylar Grey-assisted single “I Need A Doctor” had became the first Dr. Dre song to surpass 2 million digital downloads. However, no release date for the mysterious album has surfaced.

Also in the feature is the man who says he’s spent “seventy-nine hours without sleep” to work on music admitting that one of his biggest hits, Eminem’s “My Name Is” was started rather quickly:

I put the track on, we had a little bit of idle chitchat, I put on the beat, and maybe five seconds in—I swear to God—he goes, “Hi, my name is.” That was it. And it’s still clicking. There’s something about our thing that’s just magical.

        Well the speed that Dre’s on is actually slowing him down. Needs to stop trying to inject Ms Cleo.IJS

    Dre, stop the bullSh*t. Your fans have been waiting on this album for over a decade. Get out of here with that psychic sh*t.bro. Drop that Detox album and give some closure to your fans who help support you. The hip hop industry really need good quality music. F*ck the psychic, and give your fans what they want, which is good music. Oh yeah, when you drop the album make it a four disc album with 20 songs per disc and make history again. I mean, we deserve more songs from you really since we’ve been waiting for OVER A DECADE DRE…GOT DAMN!

      Haha, fans are hilarious.. You deserve an album, just for waiting on it?

      • JB

        Im not a diehard fan, but the people who supported him all these years would be happy to hear a final album. He doesn’t owe anyone anything, but it would be the right thing to do imo

      • Big Crimes

        Mother fuckers have been waiting so long they died and come back reincarnated, still waiting…

      • LMAO

  • Heart of a Slave, Blood of a k

    Yeah I was going to come into work but the psychic told me I had already been there.

  • I think Eminem is one of the greatest MC’s and rap artists of all time, however I was NEVER impressed by “My Name Is…” Never….The Slim Shady LP could be considered a classic, but “My Name Is..” gets skipped almost every time by me.

    • JB

      i agree, but back then it was sooo different that it caught people’s attention. Smart on their end, cause he couldn’t just hit the scene on that crazy ish….he was literally introducing himself.

  • jball8

    How about that Planets project?..

  • Fuck boy killer

    If Detox didn’t live up to the expectations, the Beats headphones would’ve went down in sales. Beats by Dr. Dre are weak headphones but making so much money…

    I agree. I own a pair of Soul Headphones and I got to say, the quality is 2x better than BEATS.. The name is selling the product. It’s sad but a lot of corporations sell things based on celebrity endorsement.

  • Shit at this point I don’t even wanna hear Detox anymore, lost all interest years ago. At this stage in the game it’s virtually impossible for it to live up to expectations since it’s been so long, plus IMHO his musical output as of late REALLY ain’t been all that spectacular. It’s all good though, if I wanna hear some Dre I still got that original Chronic on deck and the few songs I can still stand off 2001. Comebacks ain’t for everybody I suppose.

    The picture on the front page is the reason.. dude lookin flabby and sick

  • Obi Won

    OK Dre, that’s whats up, {NEXT}
    Detox been off the radar for a minute, at this point i’m good, I don’t want to hear Dre rap, with a verse written by Kendrick anyway.
