The first single from producer/rapper Dr. Dre's long-awaited
sophomore solo album, The Chronic 2001, will be "Still D.R.E.,"
according to a source at Interscope Records. The song, which is expected
to hit radio within the week, is a duet with former protégé
Snoop Dogg. The LP, tentatively due in October, is Dre's first
full-length solo effort since his multiplatinum 1992 debut, The Chronic.
Snoop Dogg will also join Dre on Sept. 26 when the duo perform in Oahu,
Hawaii, at the Concert on Chronic Island, which will also feature rappers
Eminem, Warren G, Nate Dogg and Xzibit.
