    Now I Got A Thought… I Still Have My Eyez On The Prize,The Red Album & GKMC Are Both Great Albums With No Dre Production! So Imagine What Detox Will Sound Like! Is It Even Still Comin Out? I Hope So. I Could Get Vex’d About Yall Doin A Cover Story On It In 11′ But Its Not Your Fault At All Yall My Niggas! This Is What I think… Bishop Lamont Left And I Assume That He Was A Big Factor On The Album With Writing & Features. So Dre Had To Trash Alot Of Material. I Could Understand No Production On The Red ALbum Because He Hadnt Gave Game A Track Since The Documentary. But…. O Shit LMAO At The Skit At The End Of Money Trees LOL. Ok So No Production On GKMC Has Me Like Yea… Detox! Also Although Dre Didnt Actually Produce On The Red ALbum OR Kendrick’s Joints Thats Not Takin Nothin From The Guys Cause These Albums Are Both Top Shelf Lyrically And As Far As Production. Im Still Lookin For Detox At A Time When People Have Forgot. That Kush Joint, The XXL Cover I Was Like Yes Its Coming… But Not Yet. Patience Is A Virtue, And Im Sure If It Drops It Will Be Worth It. Another Thing Ill Is Dre Raps On RED And GKMD On Khalil, JustBlaze, And Scoop Deville Tracks And They All Banging. I Wonder Who Will Dre Let Get On Detox… I Think We All Know JustB Is… Like We Can Trust Him To Bless Us! Loving The Compton Track On This Thang!

    This album is amazing I think it is the album of the year. Everything is in check and every song has a story with meaning unlike some rappers today. The poetic flow of this man’s past is riveting and it made it feel like a book with every chapter a new thing that he had to overcome. Wether it be him getting his weed laced with angel dust, taking his moms car to go meet a girl to his friend dying and being racially profiled. I think Kendrick is the future of rap and he his just the next big thing

    Dre didn’t produce anything in the album not because of Detox or anything, Kendrick wanted to have his crew with him in this albun and the concept of the album was very clear since day 1 so there wasn’t no room for including any Dre beat, production, etc so they did the collab songs, it’s the way Kendrick gave Dre his place in the album.
