Dre then returned to the studio for the next 8 years focussing on making music for other artists. Forward to 2010 Dr Dre is back with a new album and new physique. Internet forums have been bustling with rumours about whether or not Dre has used steroids. Dre is clearly in good shape and has worked hard to get where he is today roids or not. The rehab scenes in his new video show him in the gym busting out some weighted dips and cable fly’s, during which a well formed learn triceps muscle can be seen busting out of his shirt.
He has clearly been working on his legs.
