Dr. Dre is reportedly working on new music and plans to revive his shelved album Detox.

The last time that we heard anything about Detox was back in 2015 when Dr. Dre officially announced that the long-delayed concept album is dead, meaning it will never see the light of day. Now it’s 2018 and there are fresh reporting about the nearly two-decade old project. On Tuesday, ESPN reporter Chris Haynes reported on Twitter that he spoke directly to the legendary producer/rapper about the shelved album and he confirmed that he is working on a couple new songs.

That is some great news for Dre’s fans considering that he might have fans now who weren’t even born yet when he released his last album. It appears that Dr. Dre and his longtime friend and business partner, Jimmy Iovine, were at the Golden State Warriors practice yesterday when Haynes asked him about the album. “I asked Dr. Dre if Detox is permanently shelved and he replied, “I’m working on a couple songs right now. We’ll see,’” Haynes tweeted.

Here is a bit of a history about Detox. Dr. Dre first announced the album in 2002 and in the years following his announcement there have been numerous delays. It appears that he wasn’t too happy with the final product and constantly revamps it until 2015 he decided to leave it on his hard drive possibly. In 2009, Dre played the first official single in a Dr. Pepper commercial and announced that he would be dropping the project in 2010.

Fast forward to 2010 we got an announcement from both Dre and Jimmy Iovine that “Under Pressure” featuring JAY-Z will be the first official single off Detox. That year they dropped two more singles, “I Need A Doctor” featuring Eminem and Skylars Grey and “Kush.” In 2011, a few songs were leaked online including a song titled “Syllables featuring 50 Cent, Eminem, and JAY-Z. Between 2011 and 2014 a few songs popped up that were linked to Detox but was never confirmed. In 2011, 50 Cent did an interview where he said, the project might just be released as an EP. In 2014, Ice Cube said in an interview that the album would be released in August that year but that never happened.

The following year, Dr. Dre officially announced that Detox is dead because he just doesn’t like it. Seems he is now reviving the project.

[Verse 1]
I had it all but I let it slip away
Couldn’t see I treated you wrong
Now I wander around
Feeling down and cold
Trying to believe that you’re gone

[Chorus]
Love takes time
To heal when you’re hurting so much
Couldn’t see that I was blind to let you go
I can’t escape the pain inside
Because love takes time
I don’t want to be here
I don’t want to be here alone

[Verse 2]
Losing my mind
From this hollow in my heart
Suddenly, I’m so incomplete
Lord, I need you now
Tell me how to stop the rain
Tears are falling down endlessly

[Chorus]
Love takes time
To heal when you’re hurting so much
Couldn’t see that I was blind to let you go
I can’t escape the pain inside
Because love takes time
I don’t want to be here
I don’t want to be here alone

[Bridge]
You might say that it’s over
You might say that you don’t care
You might say you don’t miss me
You don’t need me
But I know that you do
And I feel that you do, inside

[Chorus]
Love takes time
To heal when you’re hurting so much
Couldn’t see that I was so blind to let you go
I can’t escape the pain inside
Because love takes time
I don’t want to be there
I don’t want to be there alone

She used to be my only enemy and never let me free,
Catching me in places that I know I shouldn’t be,
Ever other day I crossed the line, I didn’t mean to be so bad,
I never thought you would become the friend I never had,
Back then I didn’t know why, why you were misunderstood,
So now I see through your eyes, all that you did was love,
Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
My friend
I didn’t want to hear it then but I’m not ashamed to say it now,
Every little thing you said and did was right for me,
I had alot of time to think about, about the way I used to be,
Never had a sense of my responsibilty
Back then I didn’t know why, why you were misunderstood,
So now I see through your eyes, all that you did was love,
Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
My friend
But now I’m sure I know why, why you were misunderstood,
So now I see through your eyes, all I can give you is love,
Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
My friend
Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
My friend

[Verse 1]
Do I look lonely?
I see the shadows on my face
People have told me I don’t look the same
Maybe I lost weight
I’m playing hooky, with the best of the best
Put my heart on my chest, so that you can see it too

[Refrain]
I’m walking the long road, watching the sky fall
The lace in your dress tangles my neck, how do I live?

[Chorus]
The death of a bachelor
Letting the water fall
The death of a bachelor
Seems so fitting for
Happily ever after
How could I ask for more?
A lifetime of laughter
At the expense of the death of a bachelor

[Verse 2]
I’m cutting my mind off
It feels like my heart is going to burst
Alone at a table for two and I just wanna be served
And when you think of me am I the best you’ve ever had?
Share one more drink with me, smile even though you’re sad

[Refrain]
I’m walking the long road, watching the sky fall
The lace in your dress tangles my neck, how do I live?

[Chorus x2]
The death of a bachelor
Letting the water fall
The death of a bachelor
Seems so fitting for
Happily ever after
How could I ask for more?
A lifetime of laughter
At the expense of the death of a bachelor

[Intro]
Man, I been moving so fast lately
I just had to get my thoughts out man
I ain’t talk to you in forever
But I got you though man
Shit gonna get better kid, trust

[Verse 1]
What up kid, I know you don’t know who this is
But I took the time to write, so I’m hopin’ you get it
Only time will ever tell if you opened and read it
But if I know you like I do, I won’t even sweat it
You probably up in your room, vibin’ to Nas
Wishin’ for your time, missin’ your mom
Prayin’, hopin’ God will give you a sign
Your brother doin’ his time, dawg he’s doin’ just fine
He gonna get out soon, everything will be cool
He gonna make a few moves, get a house with a pool
And that girl in your school, the one that you got a crush on
She like you too, try not to put a rush on
You wanna get your Puff on, please don’t stop
Thought I told you that we won’t stop (eh, eh, eh, eh)
Don’t ever let ’em tell you what you can’t do
Even when it seems like the world don’t understand you

[Chorus]
It seems that these dreams, they won’t ever come true
Believe me they do
Sometimes you wanna give it up, don’t know what else to do
Yeah, I been there too
They say seein’ is believin’ so you need a few clues
OK, I’m sendin’ you proof
I know it seems that these dreams, they don’t ever come true
Believe me they do

[Verse 2]
You wrote your first raps, everybody laughed
Man fuck ’em all, get in your bag
Oh that’s new slang, I’ll put you on later
Just promise you’ll keep goin’ do me that favor
You gonna rock Barclays, but you don’t know what that is
Imagine MSG, a couple blocks from the crib
Boy, that’s 18,000
Two weeks after droppin’ your album
It’s hard to see the logic in that
All the fans goin’ crazy and your mom in the back
Your fam in the crowd, they all got to see it
Man you gave ’em somethin’ to believe in
You been writin’ like hell, it’s gonna get you to heaven
Oh yeah, they played your record up on Hot 97
You know DJ Enuff, he DJs for BIG
Speakin’ of BIG, hol’ up forget it

[Chorus]
It seems that these dreams, they won’t ever come true
Believe me they do
Sometimes you wanna give it up, don’t know what else to do
Yeah, I been there too
They say seein’ is believin’ so you need a few clues
OK, I’m sendin’ you proof
I know it seems that these dreams, they don’t ever come true
Believe me they do

[Outro]
Whatever you do man
Just don’t give up on that dream man
It’s gonna get crazy
They gonna tell you, you can’t do it
I’m tellin’ you right now everything is possible
EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE
