Dr. Dre

OK, I’m rolling my eyes a little at this one too, but Dre’s “final studio album” Detox has been rumored and delayed so many times over the past decade that it’s actuality would be a big enough to demand that we all dive in immediately. Even without the chronic delays (ugh, sorry) his return to the spotlight after years of Beats by Dre boardroom success is a natural news story, and Dre’s clearly still got enough clout to rope in the biggest acts of the day. A finished version of Detox will be full of cameos from the likes of Jay-Z, Kanye, Kendrick Lamar, and whoever else blows up in the time it takes him to finally pull the trigger. Also, keep in mind that his 2011 return single and rumored album inclusion, “I Need a Doctor” hit the Billboard top ten, charting higher than anything he’d released since 1993. It’s just going to be super unavoidable.
