While fans are still awaiting a release date for Dr. Dre‘s Detox album, the producer/rapper’s Aftermath artist 50 Cent has reminded hip-hop heads of the icon’s historic track record.
Referencing Dre-produced hits found on his 2003 debut and Eminem‘s records, 50 feels the upcoming album’s anticipation should be at an all-time high.
“I think everyone is,” said 50 referring to the project’s anticipation, who inked a deal with Eminem and Dre before releasing his acclaimed debut album. “When you got a producer that has that kind of production track record, you even have to credit both Eminem’s success and my success to Dr. Dre as a producer,” he told MTV News. “My first single off of Get Rich or Die Tryin’ — people constantly tell me it was a classic — was produced by Dr. Dre, ‘In Da Club.’ Without that momentum from that song, I’m not sure they would have taken to ‘P.I.M.P.’ the same way or ’21 Questions’ or any of the other hit records I released following that.” (MTV)
