Video: Dr. Dre f/ Eminem and Skylar Grey – ‘I Need a Doctor’

Eminem and Dr. Dre

The Doctor is in. Dr. Dre reflects on his storied career and life in the seven-and-a-half-minute video for “I Need a Doctor,” the first official single from his long-awaited album Detox. Directed by filmmaker Allen Hughes, the clip opens with the Compton rapper getting into a car accident while nostalgic images of him as a husband, father, and entertainer flash across the screen.

Years later, his loyal protégé Eminem is seen standing by his side while he remains on life support. Producer Alex Da Kid and singer-songwriter Skylar Grey make cameos as doctors who try to bring him back to life.

When he does finally awaken, Dre wastes no time getting back into shape, emerging stronger than ever. The video closes with a shot of him visiting the late Eazy-E’s grave.

Follow Doctor’s orders and watch the cinematic visuals below.

    Definitely on of the most epic videos I’ve seen in a while. Eminem kills his verses and it’s a great retrospect on Dr. Dre’s Career and reminding us of all the greatness he has brought us over the years!! Can’t wait for Detox to finally come out!!!

    Love the video and the song! The only thing that bugged me is that they got some random hot chick to act as if she’s singing…instead of getting skylar grey to do it herself…the fuck? Skylar’s hot and talanted herself. I don’t get it.
