Forgive me if this is in the wrong place but the OT board seems cluttered with other topics not related to our beloved University.
Jimmy Iovine and DR. Dre are supposed to be making a historic announcement tomorrow at Tommy Trojan at 11 AM.

Holy crap. This is about 12394234x more exciting than stealing top nueroscientists from UCLA, and it's just an announcement of an announcement.
Are my priorities in the wrong place?
But seriously, stuff like this can help football recruiting, that's all that really matters =P

Guessing it has something to do with headphones...

That's been known though for a long time. My guess is something with the music program and studios etc. LM3 must be grinning from ear to ear though.
I thought of him, too. I remember that great picture of him sitting at the main board all by himself on his OV.
Wonder if there will be cross-over benefiting the USC School of Theatre, too, or if it's solely the music program.
Either way, that combo is killer.
Dr. Dre announcing the release date of Detox?
God... wouldn't that be something!
But if Detox is ever released... I actually don't expect good things simply due to the long hiatus. See: Guns N' Roses and how they produced a 'long awaited' album only to have it suck.
Who would have thought when Dre was making the Chronic 20+ years ago at Galaxy Studios in the S.O.L.A.R Records building that he would be this big? He made a 100 mill last year alone. Interscope was about to go bankrupt in 1992. RIP Dick Griffey.

$70 million endowment...
The music business partners Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre gave $70 million to U.S.C. to start an academic program for the development of creative entrepreneurs.
Wow. That's fucking AWESOME!
Yeah I graduated from Marshall undergrad and I want to go back for this program! Wow!
And taught us how to create an empire.
They let this one slip about two weeks ago to a few band people, and I'm very surprised no one squealed. :P
We're playing for the announcement in a few hours.

I don't understand why they're making such a big deal about the size of the donation. $70 million is a lot...not George Lucas status, but damn, how are you gonna look at $70 million and act like its nothing?
LA Times had a better article..believe it, or not!
The planned USC academy that hip-hop star Dr. Dre and music exec Jimmy Iovine have pledged $70 million toward will be a mix of arts, business training.
The NY Times article compares the $70 mil gift to Stanford's entire annual fundraising efforts. Pretty idiotic comparison.
