An HBO documentary titled The Defiant Ones is in the makes and you would not believe who it’s about.
The documentary is in honour of two biggest trailblazers which Eminem paid homage to, Dr.Dre and Jimmy Iovine.
In a one-minute trailer for the documentary, Eminem said:
“Jimmy Iovine is the levitator; Dre is the innovator.”
Historically, Iovine and Dre have been instrumental to the success of the “Slim Shady” MC since he first inked his contract with Interscope and Aftermath in 1998.
Em went on to nab six solo No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart.
The Defiant Ones will navigate through the successful business relationship between music moguls Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre.
Aside from Eminem, Nas, Ice Cube, U2’s Bono, Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg and Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor will provide interviews highlighting the legacy behind the formidable duo.
According to Bono during another segment of the trailer:
“Jimmy is like a virus that enters the system.”
While conveying his appreciation for hip-hop and how it changed his life, Dr. Dre said:
“I was really determined to be a success. I was blessed to find hip-hop.”
