VIDEO PREMIERE: Dr. Dre ft. Eminem, Skylar Grey – “I Need A Doctor”

Filed under : Entertainment, Music


The long awaited music video for Dr Dre‘s hit-song “I Need a Doctor” featuring Eminem & Skylar Grey premiered yesterday on VEVO. This is the 2nd single off Dre’s HUGELY anticipated Detox album (Dre, supposedly, has been working on his album for 11 years) and is produced by British producer Alex da Kid, who co-wrote Eminem‘s hit single “Love the Way You Lie“.

The video begins with an introduction of Dr Dre’s music career, although they are snippets from past music videos. It includes many rappers such as Tupac Shakur, Eazy-E, Eminem and all the members from N.W.A. The video then features Dr. Dre driving down a highway in a Ferrari, with flashbacks of his life, crashing his car and being transported to a medical facility. The date at the beginning of the video is February 18th, 2001 (his 36th birthday). They fastforward to present day, where he has been hospitialized and is on life support. Eminem raps next to him as he is floating in an isolation tank, during which an angel (played by Canadian actress Estella Warren) is singing as a hologram behind and over Dre, mouthing the words to Skylar Grey’s vocal part in the song. Skylar Grey herself appears as one of the doctors in the video, but never actually appears singing her part. Dre eventually wakes up and goes through rehab, and the video ends with him kneeling by Eazy-E‘s grave, who had launched Dre’s music career with N.W.A.

I love the song and video’s imagery & visuals remind me of Kanye West’s critically acclaimed “Runaway” mini movie.
