Revealing: Dre Had 3 Strokes Right After His Brain Aneurysm

The hip hop community held their breath for a few weeks back in 2021 when we all found out that Dr. Dre was in the ICU after suffering from a brain aneurysm. Now, we're finding out that it was worse than we thought. I know what you're thinking, how can it be worse that him dealing with a brain aneurysm? Well, Dre told James Corden that he also suffered 3 strokes while he was in the hospital.

Dre told Corden, during his episode of "This Live of Mine with James Corden" podcast - 

“It’s just something that you can’t control, that just happens, and during those two weeks, I had three strokes,”

Dre says that he was confused by the medical emergency because he exercises on a regular basis and does all he can to keep himself healthy. He had no idea that he had high blood-pressure. Dre said that during the 2 weeks that he was in the hospital he remembers the doctors telling him a few different times - 

"You don't know how lucky you are"

Thankfully everything worked out and Dre is still around. While he says that the health scare didn't prompt a “significant change” on his life, it was something that that left a mark.
