The same article mentions Chronic 2001, Dr. Dre and Dr. Dre 2001 as other names that were considered. On the album’s content, Dr. Dre told The New York Times: Everything you hear is planned. It’s a movie, with different varieties of situations. This album was going to be called Chronic 2000 until Priority Records (who had become Death Row’s new distributor) decided in cohesiveness with Suge to call their Deathrow Compilation album Chronic 2000. Deathrow owned the trademark for The Chronic, as did Interscope Records, who previously distributed Death Row Records. Shortly after Death Row’s Chronic 2000 release, Dr. Dre changed the name of this album to Chronic 2001 and a big budget promotional campaign began. Suge was tipped off about the name of Dr. Dre’s album since notification of the trademark use was required by Aftermath Records.

It took seven years for Dr. Dre to make a worthy follow-up to his game-changing 1992 masterpiece The Chronic, but the Good Doctor was able to exceed expectations when he finally released his sophomore album 2001 on Nov. 16, 1999. In February 1999, Dre had enjoyed a career revitalization when his struggling Aftermath Entertainment imprint landed a young Detroit rapper by the name of Eminem whose chart-topping The Slim Shady LP was produced under the auspices of Dre’s watchful eye. The album not only launched Eminem’s supernova career but proved that Dre was still relevant in the rap game.
Why does a producer as original as Dre work with such pedestrian rappers? Perhaps it's to ensure his control over the project, or to mask his own shortcomings as an MC, but the album suffers considerably as a result. Out of all the other rappers on 2001, only Snoop and Eminem - Dre's two great protégés - have character and while Eminem's jokiness still is unpredictable, Snoop sounds nearly as tired as the second-rate rappers. The only difference is, there's pleasure in hearing Snoop's style, while the rest sound staid.
