A post on his Instagram states: “I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon.”
Speaking to Billboard, Dr Dre’s lawyer said “he’s resting comfortably”. Doctors are reportedly unsure of what caused the aneurysm – the medical term for a bulging blood vessel – at this time.
Last November, Dr. Dre revealed he is collaborating with Kanye West on a follow-up album to ‘Jesus Is King’.
A number of Dre’s peers and fellow hip hop stars have wished him well online.
Dre’s former NWA bandmate Ice Cube said: “Send your love and prayers to the homie Dr. Dre.”
Missy Elliott wrote: “Prayers up for Dr. Dre and his family for healing & Strength over his mind & body”.
LL Cool J reported that “Dre is recovering nicely.”
