All they want is a strong version of what you gave last time,’” 50 said. “They need a new version of that. It’s like Sade. She goes away for six years, and then she comes back with a new disc…it reminds you of the f**kin’ shit that she gave you before she left. There’s certain artists that have that luxury. You could go away and still be interesting enough to come for people to want to hear that effort. Dre is like that.” There’s still no release date for Detox.
