On Thursday, the legendary producer, born Andre Young, revealed he has pledged to donate all of the royalties from his new album to fund a center for the kids of Compton.
In an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio, Dre shared, “I decided to donate all of my artist royalties from the sale of this album to help fund a new performing arts and entertainment facility for the kids in Compton.”
Compton Mayor Aja Brown is absolutely thrilled. She released a statement saying, “I’m honored that Mr. Young has decided to make a significant investment in his community. He clearly has a heart for Compton, especially our youth. I believe this performing arts center will provide a pathway for creative expression, exposure and training to the myriad of industries that support arts, entertainment and technology – while providing a much-needed safe haven for our youth.”
Kudos to Dr. Dre for giving back to the kids in his city!
