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 s***. [Laughs]”
