At this point I think we've all given up on "Detox" ever being released, but that doesn't mean Dr. Dre isn't keeping busy. According to Variety magazine The good doctor has signed on to produce the horror film "Thaw". Set over in the Yukon, this flick is about an ancient evil spirit that's unleashed as ice thaws....ummmm, okay!!! The script is currently being written and will be distributed by New Line Cinema (the same company that distributed classics like "Friday" "House Party" and a grip of others) Maybe Dre is following in the footsteps of fellow N.W.A member Ice Cube going the movie route, who knows but it would be nice for Detox to see the light of day before we all get to old to care! lol

The new owners of Death Row Records lost a round in court yesterday (April 19th), when a judge ruled that the label does not have the rights to sell Dr. Dre's hit album The Chronic digitally.
U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder ruled that Dr. Dre has never received the proper royalties from sales of the hit album The Chronic, which has sold over eight million copies since being released in 1992.
While The Chronic can still be online, Judge Snyder ruled that Dr. Dre should receive 100 percent of all of the proceeds from online sales of the album.
The judge also ruled that the new owners of Death Row Records do not have the rights to sell Dre's music from The Chronic on a compilation or any other albums.
The judge ruled that Death Row could only sell The Chronic in four formats: CD, cassette, vinyl and 8-Track
A new clothing line endorsed by the family of the late rapper Keith "Guru" Elam has launched as the one-year anniversary of his death approaches.
Guru died from cancer under controversial circumstances on April 19th, 2010, at the age of 48.
To celebrate his legacy, the G.U.R.U. Clothing line has teamed with The X Label and Listen Clothing to drop a variety of T-shirts, centered around the Gangstarr frontman.
"Guru’s prolific lyrics and profound voice has left a permanent mark in hip hop history," a rep for the clothing line said in a press release. "His purpose was clear and driven from the heart. This clothing line seeks to uphold the message and continue the mission of a legend."
A percentage of all sales of the clothing line will be donated to Guru's trust fund for his son, KC.
