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.
