Dr. Dre

With a career that dates back to the 1980s few people have accomplished as much in the world of Hip Hop as Dr. Dre. The Compton rapper/producer recently teamed with Interscope Records co-founder Jimmy Iovine to donate $70 million to the University of Southern California (USC) to create a new undergraduate program called The USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young (Dr. Dre’s real name) Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation. The mission of the program will be to create “a new generation of inspired innovators” through a curriculum that will focus on “arts and entrepreneurship; technology, design and marketability,” according to statements made by the south central Los Angeles institution.
