Dr. Dre returns with a dramatic new video for his latest single "I Need a Doctor," which was directed by filmmaker Allen Hughes (Menace II Society). The song is from Dre's highly anticipated third solo LP Detox. Although no official release date has been set for the album, it looks as if the project will finally hit stores after a 10-year delay.
The clip starts off with Dre reflecting on his storied music career with N.W.A., his early days with fellow rappers Snoop Dogg and 2Pac, as well as his personal life. Then, while driving his Porsche, he gets into a severe car accident, which leaves him in a coma. But thanks to Eminem's inspiring rhymes saluting the good doctor for helping him become one of the best rappers in the game, Dre eventually awakens from his coma and rehabilitates himself back to health.
The video ends touchingly with Dr. Dre visiting the graveside of his once friend-turned-rival Eric "Easy-E" Wright. Their historic feud led to some heated diss records between them, but Dre reconciled with Easy-E shortly before he died of AIDS on March 26, 1995.
