During the last few weeks, hip-hop's most acclaimed producer has been making headlines for being attacked at the Vibe Awards. But on a rare trip to New York soon before the melee, the only act of violence on Dre's mind was putting the entire music industry in a chokehold. He's decided to forge ahead with his on-again/off-again Detox LP and also has his platinum hands in several other projects.

“When I started, I went in and did like 14, 15 records," 50 said of his new album. "Then I put those records aside and started over. I went out to L.A. and worked with Dre. We got some special joints so I'm excited right now. I know I'm gonna exceed everyone's expectations on this project because they feel like Get Rich or Die Tryin' was the best I could do.
