OH WOW HE WAS CUTE............DAMN I DIDN'T EVEN KNW HE HAD A SON THAT OLD.........I FEEL BAD 4 HIM.....AND HIS SON WAS ONLY 20? AND DEAD? TOO YOUNG. I HATE READIN OR HEARIN ABOUT YOUNG PEOPLE IN MY AGE BRACKET JUST DYIN.......HE DIDN'T EVEN LIVE YET. R.I.P ANDRE JR.
if he was partying..he could of been drinking too much. People don't know that when you pass out, that's your body's way of stopping you from drinking, because your body feels like it might die and it thinks the only way you'll stop consuming is if it makes you go to sleep. Passing out isn't good, and it isn't funny because you're trying to get 'shitty' drunk..it's your body warning you you're drinking too much.
so sad, my prayers goes out to this young man family, friends, fans and loved ones.
Life is short, do wait to tell someone that you love, hate, like, etc. them. No one is promised tomorrow.
How many of you have called your parents today just to say I love you and hello? I do everyday!
MTO yall got the wrong damn son up in the picture. The son in the picture is Curtis Young. If you look in the picture you will see the name Curtis Young. The son that died was named Andre Jr. I can't believe yall haven't caught this obvious mistake yet!
I was thinking/ speculating that it may have been alcohol poisoning or it could have been a pre-existing condition he's had. Either way, it's very sad. That is what makes us all human: no matter how much money you have, you can not save a loved one from death and dying. So sad.
Aw man, sorry to hear that....please let this child rest in peace!!! I am so sick and tired of hearing about our young kids dying everyday...what is it gonna take to make them realize this isn't the way?!?!?
That is so sad. My condolences to Dre's family at this terrible time in their lives. I cannot imagine losing my child and hope his friends and family can find some sort of inner peace in the days to come. Such heartbreaking news.
RIP! Dre and his wife must be devestated. I couldn't imagine finding my child dead.
Although I am sure his wife is devastated, she is not the mother of Andre. Dre got several baby mothers including Michel'le.
My thoughts and prayers are with him at their time of breavements.
Is this the son with singer Michel'le?
Not that is not Michel'le's son. Her son's name is Marcel. I didn't know she had a baby from Suge Knight either.
OKAY EVERYONE THAT PICTURE UP ABOVE IS NOT THE RIGHT PICTURE...THAT KID IS HOOD SURGEON AKA CURTIS YOUNG...NOT CURTIS YOUNG JR...HOOD SURGEON (GUY IN THAT PIC ABOVE) IS ALIVE HE'S 26 YEARS OLD
HERE'S HIS MYSPACE:
My condolences go out to the man...I have no children, but I couldn't fathom losing a child.Real Talk.Brooklyn Lives-Where I tell my Family & Friends that I love them cause nothing is promised not even tomorrow...LET EM KNOW! Ya feel me?!"

YOU DUMB MOTHER FUCKERS!!! THE GUY IN THE PIC IS NOT ANDRE YOUNG JR, THATS DRE'S OTHER SOON CURTIS YOUNG!!! ITS VERY IRRESPONSIBLE TO PUT UP WRONG SHIT ABOUT A TOPIC LIKE THIS . . . GET YOUR FUCKIN' SHIT STRAIGHT!!!
THIS IS ANDRE YOUNG (MYSPACE PAGE):
No. I don't believe this is the son he had with Michel'le. The son he had with her was born in 1991. (I remember that like it was yesterday) Also, I did some research of my own on this, and it turns out that this boy may have either changed his name to match his dad's, OR, MTO has made a serious error, but Dre's son is named Curtis "Hood Surgeon" Young. Nothing at all like what MTO said. So who knows?
Yep, that's exactly what I said. How did MTO screw this up? Luckily for me, I was old enough to remember watching him on tv talk about his children, and I don't remember a Dre Jr. I remember Curtis, who went by the name "Hood Surgeon." He was born when Dre was a teenager. I don't know where MTO get their half-assed info. This is just like last week when they said that Whitney Houston was originally going to play 'Denise' from The Cosby Show, and everybody was talking about how it was "old news," but it was INCORRECT! I'm not telling you what I HEARD, I'm telling you what I saw with my own eyes because I'm older and I remember these things. The killing part is, MTO rarely says, "Oops, we made a mistake." They just learn to live with lies.
R.I.P. My condolences to the family.
Why is it that these rappers all escape violence from their drug dealing days but their children die so easily. Jay-Z lost his nephew to a car accident, now Dre's son died, you can go down the list. I have nothing but sympathy for the families.
REST IN PEACE YOUNG DUDE.
So sad. Yeah, too many folks dying this year...WTH is up with 2008? I figure since he was still a young kid, he probably didn't know his "limit" when it comes to drinking (which is illegal for a kat under 21 anyway) and he just went overboard and his body shut down in his sleep.
Too sad. SMH. My prayers go out to the family.
Man I know Dr.Dre crying his eyes out, His brother first and now his SON? man something isnt right. I know alot of people gonna say Suge Knight had something to do with it.I hope he wasnt popping pills or someone slipped some foul shit into his drank.that's sad alot of things couldve went on like...someone probably tried to rob him anything..It seem like he died like Pimp C died.still a mystery
I had no idea Dr.Dre had a son that old. I am in shock!!He was such a handsome young man and I am sure he had a bright future. My condolences go out 2 Dr.Dre and his family. Cant imagine having a child die before the parents. I pray I never find out! Rip Andre Young Jr.
MTO THAT IS NOT THE RIGHT SON IN THE PHOTO ABOVE BOTH OF HIS SONS ARE NAMED AFTER HIM. THAT'S THE OLDEST, THAT IS WELL ALIVE.
GO SEARCH HIM ON M***** LEAVE OUT JR., LIMIT YOUR SEARCH TO MALE, AGE 19-21 AND HE'S ON THE 3RD PAGE, THE VERY LAST PERSON, IN A PHOTO WITH A GIRL. YOU WILL KNOW IT'S HIM BECAUSE ALL HIS FRIENDS HAVE LEFT THERE CONDOLENCES UNDER THE COMMENTS.
MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE ENTIRE FAMILY!
It hurts to lose a child doesn't it? There is a huge number of parents who have lost their children due to your misguided destructive ignorant lyrics that encited gangsta mentalities that disrespect women and have caused way too many deaths via gang violence and incarceration.
You have reaped what you sowed. Please pull your new album if it is laced with messages of Black degradation and ignorance.
You have been used to destroy your people. This is a sign from God to not rejuvenation gangsteration!
This is very sad but Dr.dre was responsible for the deaths of many,many young people through his music and influence.And it was on purpose and he had no conscience. Plenty of parents had to bury their kids after the whole west coast gangsta thing . Dre's attitude was' SO what? I'm making $$".Not saying this has something to do w/his son's death but karma is crazy and real.You can't help harm a generation and not be accountable. money really means nothing
Um, unless something has changed, that is Dr. Dre in that pic, receding hairline, scar on his face, big eye/little eye and all. In any event, my heart truly goes out to his family and may God be with them. And msmochachina, I guess the no-neck disease has struck your handi-looking ass...you funny looking sawed off tramp. All of yall muthafuggas who think they are Dr. Baden or something need to shut the HELL up...they have lost a child regardless of HOW it happened.
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE WHO IS ON THE PIC.....ITS STILL SAD AND ITS TRUE. SAW IT ON CNN. WE NEED TO QUIT FUSSING OVER STUPID STUFF AND SEE WHY OUR KIDS ARE LEAVING US SO SOON!!!
You should probably read stuff before you respond, because I did not say it wasn't true, I said it's the wrong son.
It does matter which son is in the photo because because they said he died. People that know him probably thought he was dead. I simply gave MTO the correct link to the right son that did pass.
As you can see they corrected the mistake and took the picture down, so chill out.
And again my condolences go out to the family!
