How Many Kids Does Dr. Dre Have?

If you watched Surviving Compton you're most likely wondering: How many kids does Dr. Dre have? The rapper, whose real name is Andre Young, had six children but one of his sons passed away.  Similar to Eazy-E, the rapper believes in reproducing.  When you have five kids you never have to worry about being lonely!

Curtis Young

The rapper's first son, Curtis, was born on December 15, 1981 and is currently 34-years-old.   Curtis didn't know that the rapper and producer was his father until he was 12-years-old.  He met his dad for the first time when he was 20.  Similar to his father, Curtis works hard in the studio and has a passion for music.
