Dr. Dre I Need A Doctor -Reviewed

The super-heroes of rap are back, Dr. Dre released his music video for his next single 'I Need A Doctor' Dr.Dre, featuring his rap sidekick Eminem, the video got its world premiere earlier this week.

'I Need A Doctor’ is the second single from Dre’s long awaited album Detox. This heart-felt and moving track expresses the emotional, and strong connection between the two rap tycoons.

This amazing song deserves an amazing video, and that’s what it delivers. ‘I Need A Doctor,’ portrays the rise, and fall of one of the greatest hip-hop/rap producers of all time. The connotation of this video is out there, right in front of you, it suggests that Eminem gave Dre the strength to go on, and inspired Dre to continue in this rap game. When everyone turned their back on him, Em was the only one there.

The Detox track begins with a date (February 18th 2001) this date holds some relevance, but I still haven’t figured out what the significance is yet. Dre is sitting on a rock, watching the view, meanwhile, he reminisces on his life. We see short and meaningful clips of Dre, his family, and his early days of NWA.

Later, we see Dre driving at high speed in a sports car that matches his charisma. It crashes, turns up in the air, and violently hits the concrete floor. Dre is in what looks like an oxygen chamber, with Eminem watching over him, and Skylar Grey above in a ghostly presence.

As the video goes on, we see Dre slowly coming back to life. While Em spits his verse, Dre builds up the energy to go on with his life. This suggests how they both motivate each other to be the best they can be. ‘I Need A Doctor,’ cleverly demonstrate the true factor of life and death, along with true friendship.

To check out the full video, don’t delay, watch the world premiere on Youtube and to capture the true meaning of life and friendship.
