The recently single Dr. Dre is much happier now than he was six months ago. The legendary rapper and producer went through an incredibly scary experience that he is just now talking about.
Few people have impacted the music industry like Dr. Dre. Coming from his NWA roots, he took on the music business by storm, becoming a mogul in the process. All the money in the world didn’t stop an incredibly scary medical situation from rearing its ugly head.
The Los Angeles Times recently spoke to Dre where he went into new details about the brain aneurysm he suffered which caused an emergency stay at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He had an array of tests to make sure that he was okay, and this situation is not one he saw coming at all. He’s feeling fantastic now and looking to live a much longer life.
“It’s a really weird thing. I’ve never had high blood pressure. And I’ve always been a person that has always taken care of my health. But there’s something that happens for some reason with Black men and high blood pressure, and I never saw that coming.”
“But I’m taking care of myself. And I think every Black man should just check that out and make sure things are OK with the blood pressure. And I’m going to move on and, hopefully, live a long and healthy life. I’m feeling fantastic.”
Dr. Dre had enough stress in his life, especially after the past year. His wife divorced him and took $2 million a month in spousal support in the process. He also had to pony up dough for her legal team and also get a new attorney himself. Needless to say, that situation has been one terrible one to go though, but Dr. Dre seems to be living his best life as he enjoys this second chance.
