CALIFORNIA (CelebrityAccess) – A high-tech arts building named in honor of Andre “Dr. Dre” Young and Jimmy Iovine will be opened on the University of Southern California campus, according to The Associated Press.
The building, which is known as the Iovine and Young Hall, was named after the duo who donated a combined $70 million in 2013 to create an art, technology and business academy at the college. The hall will provide a learning space featuring 3-D printers, electronic labs, a podcast studio and alumni incubator space.
Dr. Dre is best known as a producer, rapper and one of the founding members of pioneering hip-hop group NWA. He is the founder and CEO of Aftermath Entertainment, the co-founder of Beats Electronics (a company he started with Iovine), and was previously co-owner of Death Row Records. Iovine is a music industry veteran and entrepreneur as well as the co-founder of Interscope Records.
Dre and Iovine are reportedly expected to attend a dedication ceremony on the campus Wednesday (Oct. 2).
