When you’re the son of a legendary rapper/producer and one of the forefathers of Rap music, who has been celebrated and respected in his field for more than 20 years, it’s natural that you want to follow in his footsteps. Dr. Dre, born Andre Romell Young, has paved the way for artists not only from the West Coast, but all over the country. The Hip-Hop icon found something that works, something that fulfills him and something that proves to be important to the world. Curtis Young, son of super producer Dr. Dre, is ready to continue his father’s legacy because it is not only a desire, it is his destiny.
“My world became complete when I finally met my father at the age of 21. I am extremely grateful for my father paving the road for me and many other artists. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to take over a legacy. As a producer, my father has set extremely high standards to existing and upcoming producers all over the globe but my hard and dedicated work will show everyone that I deserve the name Young,” says the aspiring rapper/producer.
Born in Paramount, California, Curtis Young and his mother moved to the city of Compton when he was an adolescent attending elementary school. He grew up in the streets of Compton with dreams of becoming a rap artist. Following on his father’s path, Young established his own independent label, So Hood Records, and immediately acquired several talented newcomers to its growing roster. Now under the title of his new venture, Young Entertainment Inc., Young has added engineering and production to long list of skills.
“People can expect a new trendy look from me. I represent a new era of positive feel good music for the West Coast — I am a new generation of Left Coast artists who can not only rap but produce as well. In the future, my company Young Entertainment Inc, will set high standards and create another element for the Hip-Hop world so get familiar!”
With the release of a few local mixtapes, including “The Autopsy Mixtape”, “Family Tree Vol. 1 and Vol. 2”, “Son Of A Doctor”, and “Billionaire Dreams”, Young has generated a heavy buzz that has the streets anticipating the summer release of his debut album, “Product Of My DNA.”
“For my debut album, you can expect to learn about the making of Curtis Young. The story of actually becoming a product of society. People can expect to hear the true meaning of ‘Product Of My DNA’ that will let people know who Curtis Young is and how I learned about my father, Dr. Dre.” Curtis Young is a true product of his environment and he will reanimate West Coast Hip-Hop like his legendary father, Dr. Dre, once did.
