Rapper Xzibit has spoken out in support of his friend Dr. Dre after the tragic passing of his son André Young Jr. on August 23rd. Having also lost his own son in May, Xzibit explained that he is giving his friend some time to grieve and that he wouldn’t wish such a loss upon anyone. Learning from his own experience after Xavier‘s death, Xzibit added that when Dr. Dre is ready he will "step in and do whatever he asks."With the loss of a child uniting the friends, Xzibit adds that it is "unexplainable to someone who has never experienced it, how it feels to bury your child."

The loss that you experience "I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy," he explains. As he has in his own situation, Xzibit believes that this tragedy will make Dr. Dre hold on to the children he has "even tighter, because life is never promised."

Dr. Dre has four other children; sons Curtis, 26, Marcel, 17, and Truth, 11, and daughter Truly, 7.
