Snoop Dogg Speaks on Dr. Dre & The Game’s Reunion

Snoop Dogg rolled through Big Boy’s morning show “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” on Los Angeles’ Power 106 this week to talk about the picture of himself, The Game, and Dr. Dre that surfaced on Twitter late last week.

“We actually working on Detox right now,” said Snoop. “Me and Dr. Dre and D.O.C. and Stat Quo we in there doing it everyday trying to go hard in the yard. I called Game up so he could come be a part of this one particular record Dre had that was needing his vocals and his assistance on.”

The Game, who posted the picture to his Twitter account along with the message: “CAN U SAY “DETOX” ??? IN THE STUDIO WIT DRE & SNOOP. WE BOUT 2 MAKE A LOT OF PEOPLE MAD. RIDE WIT US OR GET RAN OVER! AFTERMATH OR DIE!”, had the internet buzzing not only because people were excited to see that this album might actually still be happening, but because it was the first time Dre (who’s usually pretty camera shy) was pictured with Game in a long while. The two previously had some beef and weren’t speaking with one another for a while.

Snoop admits that he’s responsible for reuniting the pair not only in the flesh but also on a new track slated for Detox. “They needed me to get in contact with Game,” said Snoop, “I had the number in my phone and I shot that that way and they called him and once he got there him and Dre hollered and they got a great relationship.”

According to Snoop, he’s been in the studio with Dre for the last two weeks working on Detox and hinted at the importance of what many believe this album will mean for West Coast music. “It’s always about what we can do, not what we did,” he said. “We trying to do some things to bring this whole movement back. So that’s what that picture was about. It was about symbolizing the West Coast movement… Dre don’t even let people take pictures of him. Guess who wanted to take the picture? I was upstairs. [Dre] was like man come down here let’s take a picture.”

Detox has been in the making for close to 10 years and there has yet to be an official release date for it, but this reunion appears to be a good sign for progress on the album. -Brooklyne Gipson

    This is good shit for the west coast. I’m a southern bwoy, but I’m glad to see that dre and game were able to come together and do this shit for their coast. West got alot of talent out that way. Can’t wait for the detox album!I’m a stay puffin though. LMAO!!

    • JC

      game was right…dre couldnt finish detox without him cause game is carrying the west on his back rite now

  • HNIC

    Having unity from some of Cali’s biggest artists is definitely a good look for the left Coast. This could be the beginning of a resurgence that the game needs, right now. I happy to witness it & I’m excited, again, to hear that the Detox might still come to fruition. Now, Dre just needs to get Rakim, Busta & Joell (& Crooked I for good measure) back in the studio with him. It would be nothing short of a classic.

  • norcal

    music isnt the same without the WEST,hip hop been died 4 while.even those new east coast albums were wack. EM has started now we thirsty 4 more

  • Still a Fan of Fif

    Damn, Dre…do you trust this nigga Game, after his bipolar antics

  • venemez

    Once again very intresting post from Brooklyne Gipson.

    Thank you…

    The West is back!!!!

  • NAPTOWNNUISANCE

    now thats whats up.im willin to bet the detox album will be nothin short of another classic.as far as bringin the west coast back from its slump?hopefully it sparks it.but i dont think one bangin album will be the wests resurrection.but i will keep my fingers crossed i could get proven wrong and hopefully i do.i miss the west movement it was 90 percent of the music i was bumpin back then.the west was strait on fire for a minute.

  • angeldust

    finally, Game been around and been thru alot thanks to 50 and his bitchz ass cockblocking, now nigga Game can get the full potential of this shit.

    He workd hard for it, Doctors advocate and LAX were both ill bangers, now RED album will be something crazy.

  • oskamadison

    Everything real, I first heard about Detox when my son was 3 in’04. I hope to see it drop before he graduates high school.

  • fireforreal

    Alright. it took snoop to get these niggas together ? fine with me. The westcoast can really help hip hop in general get better as long as were all on the saame team and gettin money like we should. That’s what’s up youngin’s being smart and fuckin the petty bullshit beef to the side

  • brand-new

    shit, dre better be working on that album! i think that’s why he trimmed his label down so much. game,busta,eve,rae,joell ortiz,bishop lamont all gone. i thought he was nuts for dropping bishop lamont, it would be cool to hear him on detox.

    “AFTERMATH OR DIE!”
    DAMN the game is bi polar! LOL I was listening to 1 or his songs sum months back & this guy said hate it or love it waz wack?? I bet money he takes that statement back now

  • http://xxlmag.com Blakout615

    Cnt wait to c hw it turns out .Back in like 04 on a mtv news interview Dre said it waz gonna b like a musical,with every feature playin a part in it. Wanye said last yr he was ghostwriting on it too??

    • zayzkidd

      Dre better watch out that he don’t have too many features on this album and too many writing styles on it. I hate when an album sounds like it could be a classic but when you get to the end, it feels like the album had no direction.

  • Fireforreal

    Don’t forget Stat quo,Rakim,Truth hurts,joe beast,g.a.g.e etc…… anyway fuck a long list of artist’s if there not coming close to releasing an album.Justgive us Detox and close Aftermath down LOL

  • mario

    maybe the three headed monster will rise again.

    • zayzkidd

      If the three headed monster includes Eminem and 50, then I can’t see those guys getting back to that level.

  • TheRefriedMexican

    I’LL BELIEVE IT WHEN IT COMES OUT. THEY’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS ALBUM SINCE FUCKING 2002!
