Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Eminem will be collaborating together once again for the Super Bowl Halftime Show alongside Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige. The announcement was followed by an entertaining promotional video. Dr. Dre also took part in the crafting of Donda, Kanye “Ye” West’s much anticipated album. He was featured on the song “Glory.”
The award-winning record producer had quite an eventful year in 2021. In early January, he was hospitalized in the ICU following a brain aneurysm. In mid-January he was finally able to safely return home. In October, he was scheduled to speak on behalf of LL Cool J at the annual 2021 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony. His ex-wife Nicole Young reportedly had divorce papers sent to him during his grandmother’s funeral. Young was later awarded $100 million in the divorce settlement.
