Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Swizz Beatz's kids are joining forces on screen for the upcoming coming-of-age movie, 'Charge It to the Game.'
July 15, 2021 Not only is Young starring in the film, but hes also been put in charge of handling the original music alongside Dean. I was asked and Im honored to score the film and I believe they just yesterday announced that note, he continued. Swizz Beatzs son is gonna be scoring it with me, so Im just honored to have this opportunity. He also touched on Dr. Dres recovery after suffering a brain aneurysm,while also hoping to step away from his fathers stardom with a breakout performance of his own. My pops is healing, he said. He appreciates me for what Im doing and doing on my own. I dont have to let him know every single thing that Im doing, like he said, You got the last name, run with it. Raise my eyebrows. I mean, its 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. But at the same time, I just wanna be a voice myself, you know? Curtis Young previously auditioned to play his dadin 2015s N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton, but Corey Hawkins ended up landing the role. During a 2014 interview, he explained why he wasnt disappointedabout not being cast as Dr. Dre. I actually tried out for the role, cause the casting company called me, he revealed. But my father wanted somebody with more acting experience, and I havent been acting for a long time, so Im happy for the guy that got the role. Its one of those things where we want whats best for the movie and for the film. I had a lot of fans that were upset about it, but whatevers best for the film, that presents it in that light, then Im for it. He added, I want my father to be represented in the best way, so I didnt feel any type of way about it at all.
