50 Cent Lands on Dr. Dre’s ‘Detox’ Album

Dr. Dre has buried his short-lived beef with former protégé 50 Cent, adding the rapper to the list of credits on his long awaited ‘Detox’ release. Dre and 50 teamed up for a track on the album, which was revealed via Twitter.

“I did a joint with dre for his album that’s crazy,” 50 tweeted over the weekend. “They were suppose [sic] to put it out this weekend but you never know with dre.”

A few months ago, the two took a few jabs at one another over their respective headphone lines, Dre’s Beats by Dre and 50′s Sleek Headphones. 50 kicked things off revealing that his new headphone line had angered both Dre and Interscope Records head Jimmy Iovine.

“Jimmy iovine and dre mad at me cause I’m doing sleek by 50. I guess I’m not going to be on detox Lol,” he wrote. “I’m a little hurt jimmy and dre feel like that but f— it. I’m focused I got a surprise for everybody this go round [sic].” Dre retorted by pretending not to know anything about 50′s headphones, when asked about the beef by the paparazzi.

Even though they appear to be on good terms, an official release date for ‘Detox’ still hangs in the balance. Despite dropping his latest single, the Eminem assisted ‘I Need a Doctor,’ Dre appears to be taking his time with putting the album out. The most recent reports speculated that ‘Detox’ would drop on April 20, in celebration of the unofficial marijuana holiday, but that date has long since passed. According to Snoop Dogg, Dre has not released the album because he is not quite done perfecting the music.

Fans have been waiting for Dre to drop another solo album since his iconic ’2001,’ which sold over six million copies.
