Dr. Dre is recovering in the hospital after suffering a brain aneurysm on Monday (Jan. 4), Billboard can confirm.
“Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes,” Dr. Dre said in a statement Tuesday night. “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!!”
According to TMZ, which first reported the news, the 55-year-old mogul was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he remains at the time of publication. Dre is reportedly stable and lucid, though doctors are unsure what caused the aneurysm.
“He’s resting comfortably,” an attorney for Dre told Billboard via email.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Grammy-winning producer, engineer and co-founding member of N.W.A produced a number of his own hits and multiplatinum albums throughout his career, along with crafting music for Eminem, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Eve, Jay-Z, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Xzibit, the Game, Anderson .Paak and many more.
