Dr. Dre has donated $10 million to his community high school, Compton High School, for a new performing arts center.

The donation is part of a $200 million renovation that will include a 950-person performing arts center, academic building, gym, aquatics center, football stadium, and track.

Dr. Dre was present on Saturday, May 7 for the school’s groundbreaking ceremony. “I’ve always wondered how much further ahead I might have been had the resources I needed in school were available. If I had learned more about the business industry, I would have saved myself [an] extreme amount of time, money and most importantly, [made] a lot of friendships.”
