50 Cent has already explained his views on Dr. Dre’s long delayed ‘Detox’ saying that the Good Doctor may have lost interesting in the project, but now Kendrick Lamar has taken the blame for the album’s push back. According to Lamar, Dre has simply been focused on his recently released ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city.’
Lamar explained that Dre immediately took an interest in his music before adding that the ‘Detox’ includes some incredible tracks. “‘Detox’ got pushed to the back just because my album, Dre really found interest in my music. Wanted me to go forward and push that immediately. That’s a great thing. I’ve heard the records on ‘Detox,’ they’re insane, and the opportunity to be on that is a privilege and an honor,” Lamar told Puna.nl.
50 Cent previously revealed that he didn’t think Dre was devoted to finishing off ‘Detox’ and suggested that the album could be released as an EP. “I don’t know if [Dr. Dre]‘s even excited to do [‘Detox’] now. He’s successful with Jimmy [Iovine] with Beats [Headphones], so I’m not sure if he’s pressed [to release it]. I know that when I did [see him] last when I was in Los Angeles, he was actually in the studio working on something else,” said Fif.
Lamar, however, added that with the release of his album he’ll have a chance to relax and told the Puna what he’s planning for his visit to Holland, “I’m going to get in some sight-seeing, didn’t get to sight-see that much last time,” said Lamar.
