    I think Dr. Dre is awesome. I'm sure he has a sordid past. Convince me I shouldn't admire the man. Or don't.

    Product endorsements are how you know you've made it. It's the American Dream, baby. Makes me weep with patriotism it does. :'(

    My wife asks where I am at home.

    "I'm in the lab, with a pen and a pad
    trying to get my damn album off...
    I've asked all of my fans to compile a list
    of tracks I should save or drop as hits.

    I've got to save some songs for my second CD,
    a sophomore slump isn't cool with me.

    Now shut the door." I check out her legs...
    "Get to the kitchen make me bacon and eggs"!

    Nyaaaaa!

    Early life

    The first child of Verna and Theodore Young, Dr. Dre was born André Romelle Young on February 18, 1965, when his mother was 16. She married his father after he was born. Young's middle name, "Romelle," came from his father's unsigned, amateur R&B singing group, The Romells. In 1968, his parents divorced and his mother later married Curtis Crayon. They had three more children together, two sons named Jerome and Tyree (both deceased)[3][4] and daughter Shameka.[5]

    In 1976 Young began attending Vanguard Junior High School but due to gang violence around Vanguard he transferred to the safer suburban Roosevelt Junior High School.[6] Verna later married Warren Griffin, whom she met at her new job in Long Beach,[7] which added three new stepsisters and one new stepbrother to the family. That stepbrother, Warren Griffin III, would eventually become a rapper under the stage name Warren G.[8]

    Young attended Centennial High School in Compton during his freshman year in 1979, but transferred to Fremont High School due to poor grades. Young attempted to enroll at Northrop Aviation Company in an apprenticeship program, but poor grades at school made him ineligible. Thereafter, he focused on his social life and entertainment for the remainder of his high school years.[9] Young fathered a son, Curtis, born December 15, 1981, with Lisa Johnson. Curtis Young was brought up by his mother and didn't meet his father until Curtis had become a rapper about 20 years later, with his stage name being Hood Surgeon.[10]
