Rap music legend Dr. Dre told fans on social media that he’s doing OK after suffering an apparent brain aneurysm earlier this week in Los Angeles.

Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, had to be rushed by ambulance Monday to the intensive care unit at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where he remained hospitalized Wednesday in stable condition, according to numerous sources.

Doctors told reporters that Dre was aware and had the full use of his faculties.

After entertainment website TMZ first broke the news Tuesday, the 55-year-old rapper gave an update on his condition on Instagram, saying he’s “doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon.”

While the producer was hospitalized, his home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles was the target of an attempted burglary Tuesday night, according to local news reports citing police officials.

Authorities said a burglary ring descended on the home around 10 p.m. but was unable to get inside and left. Nothing was taken. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris also has a home in the area, the report said.

Aneurysms cause a bulging or bursting of a blood vessel or artery in the brain, but the severity of the condition could vary and many have survived it, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Dre is one of the founders of West Coast rap and is a former member of the World Class Wrecking Cru and later N.W.A. He’s also known for a remarkable solo career that popularized a trademark “G-funk” sound in the 1990s while he worked as a producer for Death Row Records. He is credited with discovering and launching the careers of Snoop Doggy Dogg and Eminem. He also helped produce some of the final tracks ever recorded by late rapper Tupac Shakur.

Across social media, hundreds of tributes poured in wishing Dre well. On Twitter, rapper L.L. Cool J said, “Dre is recovering nicely.”

Dre is embroiled in a contentious divorce with his estranged wife, Nicole Young, who is seeking $2 million a month in temporary spousal support and $5 million for attorneys fees, according to reports.
