For his 46th birthday, Dr. Dre is giving himself a present: no more 16-hour days in the studio. In fact, no time in the studio at all.
The actor-music executive-hip-hop mega producer who made 50 Cent and Eminem famous announced that his forthcoming album Detox will be his last.
The Grammy Award-winning rapper and owner of Death Row Records, summed up his decision ever so eloquently: “As far as me going into the mic booth, that s___ is over.”
But rest assured, Dre’s influence in hip hop is not over. He will still scout new talent and produce other artist’s records.
