Busy rap mogul Dr Dre wants all his AFTERMATH artists to record and release albums this year (04) - so they can hit the road together in 2005.

The former NWA star has scrapped what was to be his final album, DETOX, to concentrate on producing projects for new signings Busta Rhymes, Eve and THE GAME, as well as collaborating with the likes of 50 CENT and Eminem.

And, if he achieves his goal of bombarding the charts with Aftermath stars, he'll set up a massive rap tour for 2005.

He says, "The actual goal is to have every Aftermath artist come out with an album this year, and to do a stadium tour. That would be hot."
