In 2017, rapper and producer Dr Dre pledged a substantial $10 million to Compton High School in his native Compton, California to build a new performing arts centre. Dr Dre will also have a hand in raising the rest of the money needed to complete the project, which is expected to break ground in 2020.

“My goal is to provide kids with the kind of tools and learning they deserve,” he told the Los Angeles Times. “The performing arts centre will be a place for young people to be creative in a way that will help further their education and positively define their future.”

The centre will not only serve the school’s 2,500 students but be a resource that the larger Compton community can utilize as well.
