Wow, what sad news. It has been reported that the body of Andre Romelle Young Jr. was discovered on Saturday morning by his mother, who tried to rouse him. Paramedics arrived on the scene but it was too late, Andre has already passed away.
Dr. Dre’s representatives confirmed Young’s death, saying in a statement: “Dr Dre is mourning the loss of his son Andre Young Jr Please respect his family’s grief and privacy at this time.” They are still waiting on toxicology reports to determine what caused the death. Police do not expect foul play.
Dr. Dre is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and a former co-owner and artist of Death Row Records. He has been known to pressure artists, he produces, to give flawless performances. In 2006, Snoop Dogg told the website Dubcnn.com that Dr. Dre had made new artist Chauncey Black re-record a single bar of vocals 107 times.
He is set to release a new album “Detox” later this year. Our prayers go out to Dr. Dre’s family.
