Dr. Dre is reportedly still in the intensive care unit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The legendary rapper / producer / entrepreneur had a brain aneurysm last week. Dre last updated fans on social media five days ago. “Thank you to my family, friends and fans for their interest and good wishes. I am doing great and I am being looked after by my medical team,” he said. “I’ll be out of the hospital and home soon. Greetings to all the great medics at Cedars. One Love !!”
Medical workers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are reportedly still conducting tests Dr. Dre, aka Andre Romelle Young. Sources close to Dr. Dre tell he is still in intensive care while the doctors are doing their tests and that he is staying there as a precaution. It’s unclear what caused the aneurysm in the first place, and doctors are watching him to make sure he doesn’t have another aneurysm. It is also unclear whether he has had surgery since arriving at the famous hospital.
Dr. Dre suffered from a brain aneurysm last Monday at his home in the Pacific Palisades. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance. According to medical professionals, brain aneurysms result in death in about 50% of cases, while “two-thirds continue to suffer from a permanent neurological deficit”. It is currently unclear how Dr. Dre leaves the hospital even though his update seemed very upbeat. We just have to hope that he will provide his fans with another update in the coming days.
Dr. Dre became known as one of the founding members of the legendary hip hop group NWA. He provided the beats and rapped alongside Eazy-E, Ice Cube, the Arab Prince, MC Ren and DJ Yella. The group formed in 1987 and quickly gained a following in the Southern California area, but gained international fame with the release of Straight Outta Compton in 1989. The band later split up and the members went solo. Dre released The Chronic in 1992 and helped launch the careers of Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Warren G., 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, The Game, and many others. In addition to his production and rap talents, Dre is known as a successful entrepreneur.
The Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is not only known for providing exceptional care. It’s part of hip hop history too. Eazy-E, former NWA member at Dr. Dre, died there in 1995 at the age of 31 of AIDS complications. At the time, the hospital was receiving up to 2,500 calls daily from troubled fans. In 2005 and 2006, producer J Dilla edited his legendary donuts record before his death in the Los Angeles Hospital. Now hip-hop fans are hoping that it will be the hospital that Dr. Dre fully recovered and returned home. TMZ was the first to report that Dr. Dre is still in the intensive care unit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
