Dre Aiming For Winter Release For Detox

Legendary hip-hop icon DR. DRE is finally satisfied with the quality of his long-awaited DETOX album - and is aiming to release it by the end of the year (08).
The LP is the rap mogul's first album in nine years, following the 1999 release of his disc 2001.
And the perfectionist is now happy for fans to hear the CD in its entirety.
He tells newspaper USA Today, "I'm just now - over the last couple of months - starting to feel that it's going to be right and it's something I can be proud of, and everybody is going to love it.
"In a perfect world, I'm shooting for a November or December release."
Dre, real name Andre Young, admits the long hiatus in between albums is unintentional - although he has no plans as yet for a fourth solo release after Detox.
He says, "I've never set out to do that (release albums years apart). I just make the music feel the way I want it to feel and I don't put it out until I'm totally happy with it. Then it does what it does."
He adds, "I'm going to put this record out, promote it, tour and then become a hermit. I'm going to stay in the studio and produce."
