Dr. Dre Relaunches Website, Used As A Platform To Preview Music

Hip Hop superstar Dr. Dre is a lot of things, but he's never been a heavy Internet presence.

The Compton, California producer/rapper and founder of Aftermath Entertainment is not known for tweeting, facebooking or doing many online interviews, but the icon's DrDre.com website has been relaunched this week.

DrDre.com, a website owned by Dre and his legal staff since 1997 (according to online records) - a year after forming his Aftermath label, has sat dormant for several years. The site now provides a Soundcloud to "I Need A Doctor" , Dre's Eminem-assisted second official single from long-awaited third solo album, Detox. The single's official cover art also drives consumer's to tomorrow (February 1, 2011) iTunes release date.

Other artists, such as Kanye West and Swizz Beatz, have launched or re-launched websites to provide fans with free streams and/or downloads to songs.
