The legendary rapper/producer [twitter=DrDre]Dr Dre[/twitter]’s often delayed, highly anticipated 3rd studio album, Detox, is close to 8 years in the making. Since 2004, the LP has had multiple release dates, and they all have come and gone without Detox. Most recently it was believed that Dre hinted on a 4:20 release, but that was quickly shot down by a rep for the good doctor.

With all the push-backs and  release dates over the years, we do seem to be getting closer to an actual release as 2 official tracks, “Kush” and “I Need A Doctor, ” from the album have hit the airways.

Now in the most recent Detox release date rumors, a updated version of the artwork for the lead single, “I Need A Doctor,” from the album  popped up on the Beats By Dre website stating the album would be available 4.1.2011.

What do you think, an early April Fool’s joke, or is Dre’s Detox finally going to see the light on April 1st?
