Dr. Dre is giving back in a major way! The hip-hop mogul and Compton native is donating $10 million dollars to help build a performing arts center at the new Compton High School.

In a statement about his donation, Dr. Dre says, “My goal is to provide kids with the kind of tools and learning they deserve. 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.”

Students and members of the community will have access to the center that will feature a 1,200-seat theater as well as state-of-the-art equipment and facilities for digital media production.

Micah Ali, vice chairman of the district’s board of education, has confirmed the new high school will be the most modern public school complex ever built.

Congratulations to Dr. Dre for his continuous support of the Compton community!
