DR. DRE IS opening up about his health. During a recent conversation on the SiriusXM show This Life of Mine With James Corden, the rapper reflected on the life-threatening brain aneurysm he had in 2021, and revealed that he had three subsequent strokes following his hospitalization.

Recalling how it began, Dre explained that he woke up with extreme head pain, and his son and a friend convinced him that he needed to go to urgent care, where he was told his condition was “serious.”

“Next thing you know, I’m blacking out,” he said. “I’m in and out of consciousness, and I ended up in the ICU. I was there for two weeks. I’m hearing the doctors coming in and saying, you don’t know how lucky you are… It’s just something that you can’t control that just happens and during those two weeks, I had three strokes.”

Dre added that one of the more frightening aspects to the ordeal was that the doctors couldn’t pinpoint an exact cause of his aneurysm. “Nobody could give me an answer,” he continued. “I had no idea that I had high blood pressure or anything like that because I’m on my health shit. I’m lifting weights, I’m running, I’m doing everything I can to keep myself healthy… High blood pressure in Black men, that’s just what it is. They call it the silent killer. You just have no idea, so you know, you have to keep your shit checked.”

Looking back on the experience, Dre says that it “makes you appreciate being alive that’s for sure,” adding: “It’s crazy, so now knowing that I had no control over that. It’s just something that could happen out of the blue. You wake up and you go, shit. OK, I’m here.”
