Producer Nottz has revealed his involvement on the upcoming Dr. Dre album, Detox, and promised the long-awaited music would live up to its hype.
According to Nottz, he is involved with a few Detox records as of now.
"We [got] the intro on Detox and a couple of other joints on there," Nottz revealed in an interview. " I really do think it is gonna come out this time. 'm waiting for the joint to drop. Like come on man. You have been recording for years, let's do this. He got records, he got records that will shut people down. Make you don't even want to do records no more. Like, aw man, I'm doing this for no reason. It's dudes like this that makes me want to just quit. But he got some records man, it's crazy." (Hip Hop Wired)
Last month, Dre said his project could possibly drop around the winter holiday.
When asked at Wednesday's Beats by Dr. Dre fall presentation when the follow-up to The Chronic 2001 would arrive, the Doc said, "That's a good question. In a perfect world, you know I'm really trying to make Christmas, but we'll see," adding, "Something will definitely be out." The hip-hop pioneer has been recording non-stop. "I'm actually working on it every day." He is making sure to take his time so he doesn't disappoint fans. "I just have to make sure I don't accomplish this word: anticippointment." Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine seemed less confident of the drop date, joking that Christmas may have to move for Dre. "I feel that if it comes down to it, Dre will move Christmas. We support him 1000 percent." (Rap-Up)
Dre previously said he was going to scrap leaked Detox records.
"It's no leaks that came out that are going on the record," Dre promised in an interview last week. "I got hard new sh*t. I had a little bit of a leak in my security and what have you but I got new sh*t coming and trust me, it will not be anticippointment, you know what I mean? Y'all n*ggas gonna love this sh*t. Yeah!"

In September, Dre spoke on the long-awaited LP and its delay.
"Me and [Interscope Records CEO] Jimmy [Iovine] talk about this all the time. It was supposed to be my album promoting the headphones, but it's gonna be the other way around now. It's gonna be a two-for-one thing. As soon as we finish this interview I'm going into the studio and get it on. I know it's taking a long time but it's not 100 percent work on my album that I'm doing every day. That's why it's taking so long. It's been almost ten years since my last album -- but I haven't been sitting on my hands. Keeping it real with you, I just started really getting involved in it and really feeling it this year. Around January or February. Before now I was kind of doing it more out of obligation, but now I really feel it inside and it's pouring out right now. Music comes out much better when you're in that frame of mind." (VIBE)
