$20 Million Compton Performing Arts Center To Be Named After Dr. Dre

Dr. Dre's legacy will be recognized for years, through a new Performing Arts Center.

(AllHipHop News) Rap star Dr. Dre is getting his own performing arts complex in his hometown of Compton, California.

The Andre ‘Dr. Dre’ Young Performing Arts Center will be a $20 million dollar state-of-the-art facility, that is due to launch in 2020.

"The performing arts center will be a place for young people to be creative in a way that will help further their education and positively define their future," Dr. Dre said in a statement.

According to the L.A. Sentinel, the Compton Board of Trustees unanimously approved the naming The new Performing Arts Center.

The Andre ‘Dr. Dre’ Young Performing Arts Center is part of a major renovation Compton High School is undergoing, thanks to a $10 million dollar donation from Dre.

My bad, I stopped reading. But if i'm remembering correctly a lot more was donated to USC. But Dre, like a lot of others who make it, never come back to the hood. But keep stanning.

Did he fork over the dough for this like he did for USC? Or is this 20 million city of Compton dollars? I never hear of this dude giving back, but let me stop, i'm from the south so it would be hard for me to hear. But my Cali folk never talk about this dude giving a single Turkey this time a year. IJS.
