(AllHipHop News) While some music watchers still wait for the third installment in Dr. Dre’s solo album discography known as Detox, one of the cuts originally slated for the producer’s long-delayed album made its way on another recent project.
Rick Ross acknowledges that his Bink!-produced track “Mafia Music III” featuring Mavado and Sizzla was supposed to be on Detox, but he says Dre let him have it for his own recently released album Mastermind. The Maybach Music Group leader shared that information on Twitter.

Bink told XXL that he and Dr. Dre made the beat together over a year ago, and Ross was hired to write lyrics for Dre. He also stated that he got clearance from Dre to pass it on to Ross, but he had not heard the final version of “Mafia Music III” that ended up on Mastermind prior to the album’s release.
“When I heard it, it was just Ross and Mavado, but now they added Sizzla to it,” said Bink. “There’s a serious disconnect, to be honest with you, with the music. It’s not like it used to be.”
