Rap pioneer Dr. Dre is reportedly working in-house with Aftermath producers Chocolate and DJ Silk for his long-awaited Detox album.

According to rap veteran Kokane, he has also submitted work for Dre's next LP.

"I was camped out for a couple days with him and [Aftermath Entertainment in-house producers] Chocolate and [DJ] Silk," he said in an interview. "They're working on the record, the Detox. And I just submitted a couple of songs that - So it's looking real good, and sh*t's gonna be awesome... All I can say, watch what that dude do. Man, it's whew!" (Hip Hop DX)

Recent reports suggest Detox will land in stores this fall.

Will we be able to get our hands on Detox this year? Dr. Dre provided the latest update on when his long-delayed opus will finally arrive in stores. "The song with Jay-Z should be out next month. We'll see how that goes," the Doc told Terrence and Rocsi on Wednesday's "106 & Park." The first single, "Under Pressure," features Jay-Z and production from Scott Storch. As for the album, Dre gave us a reason to want a short summer. "Hopefully at the beginning of fall," he revealed. (Rap-Up)

Producer Scott Storch recently shared his thoughts on what Detox will have to offer.

"I think people will be pleasantly surprised when they hear it. It's definitely a departure from a lot of the stuff Dre has done and the stuff Dre and I have done in the past. It's a hybrid...I think he's looking for like three more records...So that should take about 400 records to get those three. He's got pretty high standards." (DJ Skee TV)

Recent reports claimed the "Under Pressure" single was delayed because of Eminem.

Alright, enough with the jokes. Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine did an interview on Skyrock radio in France a little while ago and here's the information being supplied by my sources who heard them live: 1. 'Under Pressure's release was delayed because Eminem decided to drop his new one 'Not Afraid' first, which was not the original plan. 2. They now have another single ready, other than 'Under Pressure' but have not decided which one will come out first. They did stress on releasing it this Summer though. 3. They reaffirmed the fact that Detox will be out this year. Who here still has hopes? (Hip Hop N More)
