Dr. Dre Reveals His Doctors Thought That He Would Die From Brain Aneurysm

Dr. Dre’s doctors thought he will not survive the brain aneurysm last year.

In January 2021, Dr. Dre suffered a brain aneurysm and was hospitalized and directly taken to ICU at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The super producer went on to get better in the next few days, but his doctors thought that he would die.

Dr. Dre had a conversation with Dolvett Quince on his Workout the Doubt podcast, where he revealed that Doctors called his family to say final goodbyes. “I’m at Cedars Sinai hospital and they weren’t allowing anybody to come up, meaning visitors or family or anything like that, because of COVID, but they allowed my family to come in,” he said. “I found out later, they called them up so they could say their last goodbyes because they thought I was outta here.”

He continued, “I didn’t know it was that serious, you know? Seeing my mom and my sister and everybody coming in the room. Nobody told me, I had no idea. That was crazy.”

“So I’m in the ICU for two weeks. Because of what was going on in my brain, they had to wake me up every hour on the hour for two weeks to do these tests. Basically looking like sobriety tests, like touch your nose, rub your heel on your calf and all that sh*t. So every hour for two weeks, I had to wake up and do that. [I was] tired. As soon as they’d leave I would try to go to sleep because I knew they’d be coming back in the next hour.”
