Dr. Dre Helps Victims Of Attack

Dr.

Dre donated $1 million dollars to help with

the relief efforts, due to the terrorist attacks that

leveled the World Trade Center and smashed a portion

of the Pentagon. The donation, went to Los Angeles’

Hot 106 FM’s Power Of The Dollar fundraising campaign.

Other artists have also donated as well. Russell Simmons

donated $20,000, Def Jam gave $25,000 Fubu donated $25,000,

Baby from Cash Money gave $100,000 The Rza donated $10,000

and Lyor Cohen, President of Island Def Jam gave $10,000.

Radio jock Big Boy asked each of Power’s 1.6 million

listeners to donate a dollar each to the fund, with

the aim of raising $1.6 million.

"The

outpouring of support from the people has been amazing,"

Big Boy said. "This tragedy has touched everyone.

We wanted to do something immediately to help these

innocent victims. I thought if each of our 1.6 million

listeners donated $1 dollar each, we’d raise over $1

million dollars for victim relief. That’s the power

of a dollar."

New York

City sister station Hot 97 is doing the same thing.

They have established the Hip-Hop Has Heart Foundation.

They too are asking for $1 dollar from each listener.

In related

Dr. Dre news, in addition to working with female R&B

artist, Truth Hurts and Hip-Hop icon Rakim, he recently

penned a screen play based on his rise from the projects,

to being one of the top producers in the world. Tentatively

titled "Please Listen To My Demo," the script

is still in the process of being sold.
