Dr Dre is recovering in hospital following a brain aneurysm earlier this week. In a message to fans he says he is “doing great and getting excellent care”.

The producer was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday, it was reported by TMZ yesterday (and later confirmed by Billboard). It is reported that doctors are as yet unclear on what caused the bleed on his brain.

In a post on Instagram, following the initial reports of his hospitalisation, Dre wrote: “Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes. 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!”

Among the many people to wish Dre a speedy recovery was his former NWA bandmate, Ice Cube.
