In a social media spree of sorts, the latest news pertaining to the doc was shared by Dr. Dre, Eminem, HBO, and the official Instagram account for The Defiant Ones, earlier this week.
Airing on July 9, The Defiant Ones “is the true story of the unlikely and wildly successful partnership of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine.” The four-part series, which is directed by Allen Hughes (Menace II Society, The Book Of Eli), will feature interviews with Dre and Iovine, as well as the artists they’ve influenced throughout their careers.
Eminem, Nas, Ice Cube, and Snoop Dogg are among the artists featured in the documentary. The Defiant Ones will also include never-before-seen footage of recording and writing sessions with N.W.A and Eazy-E.
Although Iovine and Dre have continuously made moves in the industry as the founders of Interscope Records and Aftermath Entertainment, their biggest power play came in 2006 when the pair founded Beats Electronics. The electronics company was later sold to Apple for $3 billion.
The Defiant Ones will air on HBO beginning on July 9 at 9 p.m.
