The long-awaited follow-up to Dr. Dre's rap classic "The Chronic" will arrive in stores sometime in November--as long as the producer and rapper can settle on a title. The album was originally supposed to be called "Chronic 2000," but Dre dropped that title after his former label, Death Row Records, released a compilation album by the same name earlier this year. Since then, Dre changed the album's title to "Chronic 2001" and "Dr. Dre." The album will now be called "Dr. Dre 2001," reports MTV News. The video for the album's first single, "Still D.R.E.," debuted on MTV last week. That song features Snoop Dogg and lyrics written by Jay-Z. Other guests on the album include Eminem, Xzibit, Kurupt, Nate Dogg and Hittman . . .
Rock drummer Tommy Lee surrendered to sheriff's deputies in Greensboro, N.C., last week to face charges stemming from a 1997 Motley Crue concert at the Greensboro Coliseum. Lee was released on a $5,000 secured bond and faces an Oct. 20 court date on felony rioting and misdemeanor assault charges.
During the concert, Lee and bass player Nikki Sixx allegedly directed racial slurs toward a coliseum guard and incited the crowd to attack the guard. Sixx was arrested at a concert on Raleigh in August and released on bail . . .
Tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. for a Phish show Dec. 15 at MCI Center.
