Dr. Dre just may be delivering on his plans to deliver material from Detox before Christmas. The hip-hop icon will be going in front of the lens to shoot a new video before the end of the year.Director Joseph Kahn hinted on Twitter that he will be directing a video for Dre. “Prepping DR. DRE. Hey Interscope, do you think there will be any BEATS headphones in this video?” he tweeted.
The day before, he provided more evidence of what he had in store. “Just booked my next video. It’s big. Three guesses who. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.”
Kahn has recently helmed videos for Dre‘s Interscope labelmates Eminem (“Love the Way You Lie”), Keri Hilson (“Pretty Girl Rock”), and Nicole Scherzinger (“Poison”).
When asked in September about Detox‘s status, Dre said that he was still recording the highly-anticipated project, but hoped to have something out in time for the holidays. “In a perfect world, you know I’m really trying to make Christmas, but we’ll see,” he stated. “Something will definitely be out.”
The album has been over a decade in the making. “I’m actually working on it every day,” added Dre. “I just have to make sure I don’t accomplish this word: anticippointment.”
