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.”

Rapper/Actor/Philanthropist and the “KING OF THE SOUTH” TIP alongside Atlanta’s Mayor Kasim Reed helped to make Thanksgiving Day 2016 a little brighter by donating turkeys and cheer to needy families. TiP greeted families in need as he and his entire family gave out turkeys, dinner, and other essentials to help these families kick off a   a happy holiday season. I have had the pleasure of taking pics of TIP and his entire family for the past seven years give back in abundance to the City of Atlanta.

The 2016 Pure Heat Community Festival was amazing as The Real ATL Pride took over Piedmont Park and hosted a day full of music, fellowship, and fun. I had the opportunity to capture images of the day’s activities which included a mini concert by K. Michelle, Tiffany Evans, JhonnI Blaze and many more. The Real Atlanta Pride is so much more than an opportunity to party it’s about giving back to the community and developing life long relationships.
