Dr. Dre (Andre Romelle Young) has been released from the hospital and is back in the studio after more than a week at the ICU.

The 55-year-old Let Me Ride rapper was hospitalized following a brain aneurysm last week. He was released on Friday, according to TMZ.

Focus, a music producer, took to Instagram to upload a photo showing Dre and a couple of his friends and colleagues in a recording studio.

The Straight Outta Compton producer and his associates appeared to be in high spirits.

“My Big Bro is Super Good!!! We are working… I took this pic so im here!!!” Focus captioned the photo.

According to TMZ, doctors kept the music guru in the hospital for more than a week to closely monitor him and ensure he did not suffer any complications following the aneurysm.

The doctors reportedly told Dr. Dre’s family that he wasn’t facing any immediate danger but they will continue to monitor him as he recuperates at home.
