Andre Young, Jr., son of rap legend Dr. Dre, was found dead in his Woodlawn, CA home on Saturday morning. Young, who came home at 5:30 AM, would not respond when his mother checked on him four and a half hours later. The cause of death is unknown, pending a toxicology report.
If Young’s death was caused by chemical misadventure, his passing could plausibly effect the release of Dre’s upcoming Detox album, as well as the line of spirits (including cognac) Dre has announced to promote the release. [LA Times]
