Alongside Ed Lover, DJ and personality Doctor Dre rose to fame in the 90s through radio programs and hosting on Yo! MTV Raps, but unlike Ed, Dre has faded into the background in recent years. Turns out, he’s been battling diabetes complications that caused him to lose his vision completely, but thankfully, he doesn’t plan on letting it hold him back!

The 52-year-old, born Andre Brown, has linked up with former Def Jam exec Bill Adler, and together, the pair are trying to pitch a reality show based on the trials and tribulations of life with his health complications and trying to get back into media. Dre hopes to build awareness with the show, as we’ve been losing many of our friends, family and idols to lack of attention to their health.

So far, there have been no bites from networks. We’ll keep you updated!
