Rapper/producer Dr. Dre, who is receiving treatment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a reported brain aneurysm, could be released from the hospital soon, according to a message posted on his Instagram account Tuesday evening.
“Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes,” the message said. “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!!”
The 55-year-old musician and Beats Electronics founder — whose real name is Andre Young — suffered the aneurysm Monday and was taken to a Cedars-Sinai intensive care unit, TMZ first reported.
Various media reports indicated Young was considered to be in stable condition. TMZ reported he was “lucid” and doctors were performing a battery of tests.
Meanwhile, Young’s home in Brentwood was allegedly targeted by burglars Tuesday night, but nothing was taken.
Los Angeles police officers stopped an SUV and arrested four people near the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Kenter Avenue at about 9:30 p.m. Inside the vehicle was a backpack full of burglary tools, ABC7 reported.
Additional details were not immediately released by police.
Young first gained fame as a member of the landmark Compton group NWA in the late 1980s, along with Ice Cube, Eazy-E and MC Ren. He went on to record and produce the smash-hit “The Chronic” album in 1992, and produced Snoop Dogg’s debut album “Doggystyle” in 1993.
Young subsequently produced mega-hit albums for Eminem and 50 Cent among others, and has acted in films including “Set It Off,” “The Wash” and “Training Day.”
He and fellow music mogul Jimmy Iovine found the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation in 2013 with a $70 million donation. The following year, Young sold his Beats by Dre business to Apple for an estimated $3 billion, making him one of the richest men in the music industry.
The rapper is in the midst of a divorce with his wife, Nicole. A hearing on the case is scheduled for Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Ice Cube — whose real name is O’Shea Jackson — tweeted his well wishes Tuesday night, writing, “Send your love and prayers to the homie Dr. Dre.”
