Many consider Dr. Dre the “architect of the West Coast” rap scene. After leaving N.W.A, he created a successful solo career, where he co-founded Death Row Records and worked with rap legends Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg. He later founded Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics. His long-time work as a producer also partnered him with Eminem and Kendrick Lamar.
And while news of Dr. Dre’s health is circulating, an update Wednesday reports, “his home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles was the apparent target of a burglary ring Tuesday night, though police say nothing was taken.
We wish Dr. Dre a speedy recovery
