Dre Day is finally upon us. Over a decade in the making, the hip-hop icon delivers the first visuals from his long-awaited album Detox. The West Coast veteran links up with Snoop Dogg and Akon in the Joseph Kahn-directed clip for his smokers’ anthem “Kush.”
“It’s a fun song, it’s hot, and people seem to be loving it, and that’s an exciting thing because I know if people are loving this song, they’re going to really get into the record because this is just the tip of the iceberg,” stated Dre.
Snoop didn’t hesitate when his mentor asked him to be part of the song.
“Dr. Dre, that’s my big homeboy, that’s my big brother,” he said. “He gave me my start, so whenever he calls me to come through and do what I need to, I’m there for him. Akon’s part of the family too so this is what we do, we just make great music.”
