Dr. Dre’s son to make acting debut in new movie

Curtis Young will be featured in ‘Charge It To The Game’ alongside Snoop Dogg and Swizz Beatz’s sons.
Dr. Dre’s son Curtis Young is set to make his feature film debut, TMZ reports. According to the outlet, which broke the news on Monday (July 19), Young has landed a starring role in the upcoming film Charge It To The Game and will also compose original music for the movie.
Charge It To The Game is a coming-of-age story about four best friends. According to TMZ, Young will play the role of Kong, one of their friend’s older brothers. Snoop Dogg’s son, Julian Broadus, will be featured as Kong’s younger brother and, as reported by REVOLT, Swizz Beatz’s son will also make his acting debut as one of the four best friends.
“This is my first movie and I wanted to get into acting… I always loved the art,” Young told TMZ. “It’s just an art form I’ve always loved. I’m playing a role, Kong, which is a gentleman named Hard time — it’s Julian Broadus, which is Snoop’s son — I’m playing his older brother. So, I’ve been reading the script, just preparing, getting motivated, behind it, and getting engaged with it.”
“I was asked and I’m honored to score the film and I believe they just yesterday announced that note,” he added. “Swizz Beatz’s son is gonna be scoring it with me, so I’m just honored to have this opportunity.”
Young previously auditioned to portray Dr. Dre in N.W.A.’s 2015 biopic Straight Outta Compton but didn’t get the part. Speaking with TMZ, he also gave an update on his dad’s health after suffering a brain aneurysm earlier this year.
“My pops is healing,” Young said. “He appreciates me for what I’m doing and doing on my own… It’s been a while since I had an opportunity like this to really step out of that shadow, but at the same time show respect and understand that people came before me.”
