Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine broke ground on Wednesday for a new academy which will be named after them at the University of Southern California, reports ABC.

In 2013 the two donated $70 million to help build the 10,000 sq ft academy scheduled to open in fall 2019. It will be called The Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.

The academy will focus on four areas: art and design; engineering and computer science; business and venture management; and communication. It's goal is to encourage entrepreneurial spirit while training students in technical and business skills.

"I'm hoping that it will bring to them independence of thought to be able to work in the world between technology and liberal arts," Iovine said.

Take a look at the video below for more details...

Will they teach the youth the true reasons why the inner city is in disappointment for many youths . Because they make millions of glorious lifestyles. They should donate their time and resources and be acknowledged for it. So they encourage them to be successful

Yes.....and use Chicago's 554 african american gang related deaths as a means to further that point you just made.....There was a shock value with the Vegas killings....Yet no shock value as to what is occurring in Chicago
