It doesn’t seem all that long ago that once almighty Death Row Records was such a prominent force in the music industry raking in $750 million dollars in revenue back in the ’90s, not to mention that “Tha Row” was also once the recording home to rap superstars like Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and the late Tupac Shakur.

Still, we started to worry for a moment there, what with the Doc refusing to leave his studio for the past… eight or so years. Thankfully, Dre has returned from this wacky exile and given GQ an exclusive interview. Prediction? Expect to read nothing hugely revealing about Detox (features, concept, release date) and plenty of quotables on out-of-date, Hip-Hop message board fodder.
