The last time anything new about Detox surfaced was back in the spring of 2018. Fans of Dr. Dre were given a peek at some of the iconic producer’s never-released recordings for the project when a medley of short song snippets appeared online by an anonymous user.
Those hoping to hear more of what Dr. Dre had presumably been working on for the scrapped Detox project just caught another lucky break, as today (November 16), the full version of one of the aforementioned snippets has made its way online, and ChadKiser.com has the exclusive.
The unreleased solo track, assumingly titled “Get It”, opens with Dr. Dre taking jabs at real or perceived antagonists with lines like:
“I see niggaz lie to they self, they probably think they lyin’ to me / you incapable of becoming what you tryin’ to be / I heard it all, I’ma do this, I’ma do that / I’ma cop a Phantom and show up with new six pack / I’ma fuck that nigga bitch, I’ma get me a chain / I’ma rap and blow the roof off this hip-hop game / I’ma slang a couple beats, get rich like you / Dre ain’t the only nigga with tracks, I got heat, too / Shit might happen if you work as much as you talk / Get some money and you blow it because you tryin’ to floss..”
Dr. Dre raps over a beat that we are familiar with — 50 Cent’s “50 For President” freestyle that Fif released prior to the release of his fourth album Before I Self Destruct in 2009, and was produced by Jake One.
The origin of this unreleased track is not known, but it sounds like it is from the 2009-2010 era when Dre was still working on Detox.
