Well, Dr. Dre says – nothing you idiots, Dr. Dre just had a brain aneurysm!
Rapper Dr. Dre has been hospitalized after suffering a brain aneurysm. The music mogul, whose real name is Andre Young, is being treated at the intensive care unit at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Dre is reportedly lucid and in stable condition, but doctors are trying to determine the cause of the bleeding.
On Tuesday night, Dr. Dre and his team sent out a statement on Instagram.
“Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes,” read the statement. “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!!”
Dre is 55 years old.
This is about the time when a lifetime’s use of cocaine catches up with you. Since we’re talking about a black guy, I guess I need to specify that I’m talking about powder cocaine.
Luther Vandross, Rick James, and Barry White all died in their fifties, as did several whites such as Jerry Garcia, Tom Petty and Joe Strummer.
The cause is usually heart attack, but brain aneurysm is sort of in the same vein.
They’re saying Dre’s gonna make it. He probably won’t.
Anyway, it’s not a huge loss. Other than Chronic 2000, the most notable thing this guy did in his life was create a series of plastic headphones, run a genius marketing scheme, and then sell the company to Apple.
Beats remains garbage, even under the ownership of Apple. If for some reason you have a desire to spend $300-500 on headphones, buy something else. Bose and Sennheiser are both obviously better, but so is Audio-Technica. For that matter, Sony still makes great headsets.
Beats are on the level of JVC, just with better marketing and 3 times the price.
I don’t know about earbuds though. Presumably the earbuds Beats makes actually are good, but do people listen to music in those?
Dr. Dre should probably be better remembered for what he named his children – he named his daughter “Truly” and his son “True.”
Just for the record, he also spent his entire life surrounded by Jews.
All of that hardcore rap in the 1990s was produced by Jews, exclusively.
Apparently, Jews had a specific desire to desire to make mainstream blacks’ inherent propensity for violence, drug dealing and criminality. No one has any idea why.
Anyway, I’m not trying to hate on Dre, and actually don’t have any strong dislike of him. I’m just, frankly, really sick of black people in general right now, and maybe some of the ones who don’t really deserve it are getting some of my hatred.
