An old friend was exercising on the same beach he just happened to be at and the two started chatting. That friend was Jimmy Iovine.
James “Jimmy” Iovine is an Italian-American who was born in Brooklyn in 1953 to working-class parents. He dropped out of college after the first year and landed a job cleaning the offices of a recording studio. He watched and learned and soon moved into the studio.
It wasn’t long before he was a studio professional producing music for the biggest names in the industry.
The two met in the early 90’s and instantly hit it off. Jimmy was a producer turned record exec and Dre was an up and coming rapper and producer at that time. Music was the bond that brought them together and music would be the bond that propelled them to greatness..
