Dr. Dre: “I’ve Actually had Tests on my Body, & the Doctor Said I’m 31”

By now you’ve probably watched Dr. Dre’s new video with Snoop Dogg and Akon for Detox’s lead single, “Kush” and noticed that the Doc is in good shape.

Well he’s in much better shape than you think. In our in-depth cover story with Dre, from the forthcoming Dec/Jan 2011 issue of XXL, the 45-year-old West Coast legend told our EIC, Vanessa Satten, that he might have to change his birth certificate due to his work in the gym. “I make sure that I take care of myself,” he said. “I feel like, now I feel much better—and actually look better, to me—than I did when I was in my early 20s or 30s. I’m definitely healthier now. That has a big part to do with it, just staying healthy. It definitely keeps your confidence up. I’ve actually had tests on my body, and the doctor said I’m 31. [Laughs] So I’m riding with that shit. [Laughs]”

    This nigga got cancer or aids and is taking the cocktail and lifting weights to cover it up. The face dont lie…. same with eminem, when you catch him without photoshop its clear that one side of his face is smaller than the other. Only a matter of time for most of these rappers that smoked blunts and did drugs and in Dre’s case fucked men and women without condoms for 10-15-20 years This nigga got like 12 Kids should have been his cross dressing ass instead of Easy-e.
