LOS ANGELES (AP) – Dr. Dre was back home Saturday after being treated for a reported brain aneurysm in a Los Angeles hospital.
Peter Paterno, an attorney for the music mogul, said Dre was home but didn’t provide any further details during an email exchange on Saturday. The rapper and producer was reportedly released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Friday.
In a January 5 social media post, Dre, 55, said he was “fine and receiving excellent care from my medical team.” TMZ had reported that he suffered a brain aneurysm the day before and was recovering at the medical center.
On Friday, actor and rapper Ice T announced that he had connected with Dre on FaceTime and “had just made it home. Safe and good looking. “
Born in Compton, Southern California, Andre Young entered the music scene as a co-founder of NWA and in 1988 produced the group’s groundbreaking debut album, Straight Outta Compton.
He produced his own hits and multiplatinum albums, and made music for many others, including Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, and Nas. He also found success outside of the rap genre, producing 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 2014 for $ 3 billion.
