Dr. Dre is reportedly close to being finished with Detox, with plans to focus on other artists once he’s finished. Speaking with Global Grind (via HHNM) at the launch of Diddy and Jimmy Iovine’s Culo by Mazzucco, he discussed focusing on Kendrick Lamar and Slim The Mobster, who will be the “final two artists” he will work with over the next few years.
“I am never going to give music up,” he said. “Music is like air to me, [music] is like oxygen, so I am always doing that. As soon as I get back to Los Angeles, I am back in the studio doing my thing. I have a couple of new artists that I am excited about, Kendrick Lamar and Slim The Mobster. These are the next two artists, and these are probably my final two artists that I am going to be working with at least for the next couple of years. I am going to devote all my attention to them and make sure their sh*t comes out the way it should be. I am just having fun with life right now!”
