Marcel Young is famous as a son of an American rapper and producer who is also known as a Godfather of the American hip-hop industry.

His parents were engaged but never married
His parents Michel'le Denise Toussant, R&B singer, and Dr. Dre, first met at World Class Wreckin Cru.
They had a lead singer Mona Lisa, but she could not make it, due to which Michel'le was called to fill her space in the vocal part for the song "Turn Off the Lights."
Dre eventually started calling her on her phone, and after certain weeks of conversation, he finally asked her out, and the couple started dating.
At the time of dating, Dre was already a father of five children, which he had from his previous relationship.
They later got engaged but could not make it to the marriage.
The reason behind their split
After few years of dating, the couple gave birth to their son Marcel.
According to Michel'le, their relationship became more strained after the birth of their child as she could not follow him anymore, which became more disrespectful when she found that there was someone else in her absence.
He became physically abusive. She was being punched in the face, leading to five black eyes, being dragged on the floor, and even shot.
She luckily survived as he missed the shot with a few inches. Despite his abusive behavior, she tried to remain with him even after several breakups and patch-ups.
Slowly it became intolerable for her to handle his infidelities and regular beatings.
They split in 1996 after she found that he was engaged to another woman.
