According to The Los Angeles Times, the 20 year-old son of Hip Hop superstar Dr. Dre was found dead Saturday morning, when his mother attempted to wake him.
The city’s coroner told the newspaper that reports stated that the young man born Andre Young, Jr. had been in Los Angeles partying, when he returned to his mother’s Woodland Hills, California residence at approximately 5:30 am.
He was found less than five hours later, unresponsive. Cause of death has yet to be determined.
Dr. Dre has yet to release any statement nor confirm relations. The mother has also remained anonymous, although the mother is believed not to be Dre protege and ’90s R&B singer Michel’le, with whom Dre did have a son.
Dr. Dre has at least five children, two of whom have stated aspirations to rap.
HipHopDX sends our condolences to the Young family. More information will be reported as it is known.
