The hip-hop industry experienced quite the scare on Tuesday, but it looks like everyone can breathe a sigh of relief at the moment. Yesterday afternoon, TMZ first reported that Dr. Dre, born Andre Young, had been admitted to the ICU in Los Angeles after suffering a brain aneurysm.
The 55-year-old rapper-producer-turned-mogul was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and a few updates followed after the initial scare, including that Dre was in “stable and lucid condition” at one point. That night, it looked like things were improving even more as fans and peers alike heard from Dre himself.
“Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes,” Dre issued in a statement Tuesday night, via Instagram. “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!!”
