Dr. Dre to debut new track, 'Die Hard,' on Showtime on Friday night

May 6, 2011 | 12:20 pm

Dr.dre In what continues to be perhaps the slowest rollout in the history of recorded music, Dr. Dre will unveil a new song from the forthcoming-ish album "Detox" on Friday night during the finale of the Showtime series "Fight Camp 360 – Manny Pacquiao vs. Shane Mosley." The new song, called "Die Hard," features Eminem, which automatically makes it required listening for anyone who's been following either of the lauded rappers' work.  

"Detox" has been in the works for most of the 21st century, with repeated delays, the occasional leak, and two hot singles -- "Kush" and "I Need a Doctor" -- released. There's no word on when the third, "Die Hard," will be officially released. Nor is there any word on when "Detox" will see daylight in its entirety.
