Snoop Dogg Confirms Dr. Dre's "Detox" is Finished

June 26, 2008 12:20 PM ET

Dr. Dre's Detox could be considered the rap equivalent of Guns n' Roses' Chinese Democracy. Both albums are long in the making, oft-delayed and sometimes seem entirely fictional. But as we discovered that Chinese Democracy is close to becoming a reality thanks to those leaked tracks, Snoop Dogg confirmed today that Detox is on its way as well. "That record is real, it's coming," Snoop Dogg said, having recently recorded tracks for Dre's album. "I was starting to doubt it myself and then I went up in there and he played so much music for me it knocked my head off." Snoop also adds the album is finished, and now it's up to Dre to go through all the songs he's culled and decide which make the final cut. "I see what he got them waiting for, it's on and poppin'," the Doggfather said. Snoop also revealed that Dre will produce his next record, the follow-up to Ego Trippin'.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
