Dr. Dre says he will be “back home soon” after the music mogul received medical treatment at a Los Angeles hospital for a reported brain aneurysm.
The rapper and producer said in a social media post on Tuesday night that he’s thankful for the “well wishes.” TMZ reported that he suffered a brain aneurysm Monday and was recovering at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
“I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team,” he said. “I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”
His representative has not immediately responded to an email.
Several music artists and athletes paid tribute to Dre on social media on Tuesday. Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg and LeBron James offered prayers toward Dre’s recovery.
Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, has produced hits for Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and more. He’s won six Grammys.
Born in the Southern California city of Compton, he broke out on the music scene as a co-founding member of N.W.A., producing the group’s groundbreaking 1988 debut album, “Straight Outta Compton.”
Dre produced his own hits and multiplatinum albums, along with crafting music for many others including Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Nas, Busta Rhymes, the Game and Anderson .Paak. 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 a $3 billion deal in 2014.
Hours following the announcement that rap mogul Dr. Dre was hospitalized for treatment of a brain aneurysm, his West Los Angeles home became the target of an attempted burglary on Tuesday night, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
According to NBC News, officers responded to a report of an attempted burglary in which suspects were seen “coming over a hill” near the Brentwood Country Estates community.
In 2014, Dre purchased a $40 million mansion in the neighborhood previously owned by Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, according to Los Angeles Times.
According to LAPD, four suspects were arrested and an investigation is underway.
According to TMZ, officers believe the suspects targeted the mogul’s home after first reports of his hospitalization broke on Monday.
On Tuesday night, the star took to Instagram to share an update with his followers saying, “I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon.”

Very relieved to learn Dr. Dre is on the road to recovery from a brain aneurysm.
