Dr. Dre to Fund Performing Arts Center in Compton

Dr. Dre, the rapper and producer, will be donating royalties from his latest album “Compton” to help fund a new performing arts center in the Los Angeles suburb, reports Kory Grow for Rolling Stone. He’ll be working with Compton mayor Aja Brown and her office on the center.

Said the music mogul, “I’ve been really trying to do something special for Compton and just couldn’t quite figure out what it was. She actually had this idea and she was already in the process of working on it. I said, ‘Boom, this is what we should do.’"
