Dr. Dre says he will “return home soon” after the music mogul received medical treatment at a Los Angeles hospital for a cerebral aneurysm.
The rapper and producer said in an Instagram post on Tuesday night that he was grateful for the “good wishes.” TMZ, the first to report Dre’s hospital treatment, said it suffered a cerebral aneurysm on Monday and recovered at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The Los Angeles Times quoted sources as saying it was in a stable state.
“I’m performing great and getting excellent care from my medical team,” he said. “I’ll be out of the hospital soon and get home. Shout out to all the great health professionals at Cedars. A love !!”
His representative did not respond immediately to the Associated Press email.
According to TMZ, the 55-year-old man was stable and clear, but doctors did not know what caused the bleeding and performed tests.
TMZ pointed out that “in the midst of a very contentious divorce, he was estranged from his wife, Nicole.”
Several musicians and athletes saluted Dre on social media on Tuesday. Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg and LeBron James prayed for his recovery.
Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, made hits for Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and many more. He won six Grammys.
Born in Compton, Southern California, he entered the music scene as a co-founder of the NWA and produced the band’s pioneering 1988 debut album, “Straight Outta Compton”.
Dre has made his own hits and multiplatinum albums, as well as music for many, including Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Game, and Anderson .Paak. Outside of the rap genre, he was a success, making pop hits for Gwen Stefani and Mary J. Blige.
Dre founded Beats Electronics in 2008 with Jimmy Iovine, and six years later they launched a streaming subscription service, Beats Music. Apple acquired both in a $ 3 billion deal in 2014.
