Dr. Dre teams with 'Mafia Wars': Good news for 'Detox'?

Dr-DreImage Credit: Bryan Bedder/Getty ImagesIs Dr. Dre‘s Detox really coming out next year? Maybe! Here’s one more sign that the long-delayed album is on its way: This morning, Dre announced that he is partnering with the online game Mafia Wars for a promotional campaign.

According to a press release, starting this weekend, Mafia Wars players can watch Dre’s new video for his single “Kush” within the game. They can also play a “Hustlin’ Wit Dre” game-within-a-game that will let them “collect Dr. Dre-inspired, limited edition virtual goods such as headphones, a vintage car, and weapons.” Players will have a chance to win signed headphones from the superproducer’s Beats by Dr. Dre line, as well as signed copies of Detox whenever it comes out…which would certainly suggest that that event is looming on the horizon, no?

What do you think of this news? Does this convince you that Detox will be on sale in the near future?

    I’m really excited about Dr. Dre’s new album Detox! I can understand him delaying it for a long time–because he always makes quality music and slamming hip-hop beats! It’s good that Kush is off to a strong start.
