Esteemed L.A. journalist Jeff Weiss recently had Aftermath producer Dawaun Parker on his “No Shots” podcast, hosted alongside West Coast rapper Nocando. Parker is known to work closely alongside Dr. Dre, Eminem, and others in their camp, and in the video above, he talks about being in the lab with Dre recently.
According to Parker, Dre has scratched the Detox title of his next album and has instead begun working on music for a newly titled project. Here’s what Dawaun had to say:
“He scrapped Detox a couple of years ago and came up with another title. I won’t say what the title is cause I haven’t seen that online or anything yet. He was like ‘We’re going to call it this and we’re gonna put it out this way, this way and this way.’ And he told a couple of people and we just kind of knew that’s the thing we were working on and, if we get the joint that he’s like ‘Here’s the joint I can lead off with,’ then that’s what the project will be. I’m under the impression that it’s still that one.”
Does this mean we could be hearing new music from Dre now that he’s relieved himself of the Detox burden? We’ll have to wait and see. Watch the full clip above.
