The music video for Dr. Dre’s song “I Need A Doctor,” featuring Eminem & Skylar Grey has arrived.

Directed by acclaimed film director Allen Hughes (Menace II SocietyBook of Eli), the seven and a half minute film includes private home video footage from Dr. Dre in a retrospective of his life and career as well as a spectacular car crash that totaled a real Ferrari Modena.

“This is a very unique song, very personal and groundbreaking so when I first heard the track I knew it was something I had to do because I like to do things that are different and innovative,” said Allen Hughes. “Besides knowing Dre for 20 years, I felt compelled to do this as a fan and as a connoisseur of popular culture I wanted to be a part of this event because it’s from the last album that a large amount of people will listen to from beginning to end.”

“I Need a Doctor” is the second track from Dr. Dre’s forthcoming third and final solo album, Detox. Dr. Dre, Eminem and Skylar Grey recently performed the song for the first time on the Grammy Awards and the track debuted at #1 on iTunes in the US.

Dr. Dre began his career creating groundbreaking music as a member and producer of renowned hip hop group N.W.A. His two solo albums which followed, The Chronic (1992) and Dr. Dre 2001 (1999) are two of the most influential and essential hip hop albums of all time. Among the artists whose music Dr. Dre has produced are Eminem, Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, 2Pac and 50 Cent. He has won six Grammy awards including Producer of the Year in 2001. In 2008 Dr. Dre co-founded with Jimmy Iovine , Beats by Dr. Dre, the enormously successful high-performance headphone and sound transmission company.
