Dr. Dre Covers XXL

Dr. Dre stimulates his mind with a game of chess for XXL‘s December/January cover. His interview can be read in its entirety once the issue hits newsstands on December 14th. In the meantime, here is an excerpt from the article:

Speaking about Detox:
I’m really feeling it now. My energy has been back and forth with the record, tussling with doing it out of obligation, as opposed to doing it because I really feel it. My feelings about it have been going up and down. Now I’m in that place where I’m really feeling it, and it’s coming out right. It’s like, Yeah, I’m excited about it.

Speaking about backing off from music after Detox:
I don’t ever see myself retiring totally from music, because I have a genuine love and passion for it. But as far as me going into the mic booth, that shit is over. I’m always going to talent scout and try to find new artists to work with. But, yeah, that’s it. I don’t see myself doing it the way I’m doing it now. I’m in the studio at least five or six days a week for 16, 18 hours. I think I’m going to back off a little bit and spend some time with the family.
