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'.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
