Dr. Dre kicked off the year in the hospital after suffering a brain aneurysm, a medical emergency he said he never imagined he'd face.
"It’s a really weird thing. I’ve never had high blood pressure. And I’ve always been a person that has always taken care of my health," the 56-year-old hip-hop mogul told the Los Angeles Times.
"But there’s something that happens for some reason with Black men and high blood pressure, and I never saw that coming," he continued. "But I’m taking care of myself. And I think every Black man should just check that out and make sure things are OK with the blood pressure." Adding that he's feeling "fantastic" now, Dre said he's moving on and hopes to live a long, healthy life.
