Music mogul Dr Dre suffered an apparent brain aneurysm on Monday and is currently receiving treatment at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

His team issued a statement from him saying; “Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes. I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”

The rapper and producer, whose real name is Andre Young, was reportedly rushed by ambulance to the medical centre’s intensive care unit on Monday. The Word is that the prolific producer is currently in “stable and lucid condition.”

Dre is widely regarded as one of the top earners in hip-hop, surpassing Sean “Diddy” Combs when Beats Electronics, the company he launched in 2008 alongside longtime friend and collaborator Jimmy Iovine, was sold to Apple for $3 billion in 2014. The former co-owner of Death Row Records and N.W.A co-founder also produced the 2015 N.W.A biopic “Straight Outta Compton.”

His Good friend @icecube posted on Twitter; “Send your love and prayers to the homie Dr Dre.”

The 55-year old hip-hop legend’s hits include the Grammy-winning “Let Me Ride,” “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang” “and “Forgot About Dre,” released between 1992 and 2001. Not forgetting his work with Eminem has been consistent over the decades. Dre’s most recent song credit appears on the 2020 album “Music To Be Murdered By – Side B,” where Dre raps on “Guns Blazing” and also served as a co-producer. Throughout his career, Dr Dre has produced tracks for many artists, including Gwen Stefani, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent, among others.

Tracks from Dr Dre’s extensive catalogue has earned many awards over the decades, including six Grammys, both for rapping and producing.

He is currently in divorce proceedings from his wife Nicole Young after 24 years of marriage. A hearing on spousal support and their prenuptial support had been set for Wednesday. Get Well Soon, Dr Dre!
