This month can’t possibly get better for Dr. Dre (unless, y’know, he drops Detox or something). Having just seen Apple snap up his Beats Electronics company for a cool $3.2 billion (around $250 million of which will go straight to his account, according to Forbes — so, unfortunately, Dre won’t be hitting that billion-dollar mark just yet), the legendary West Coast producer is set to be honored by the mayor of Compton with the key to the city.

According to TMZ, Compton mayor Aja Brown made the offer to Dre’s camp with intentions of commemorating his “entrepreneurial spirit.” In return, she’s hoping to get the Doctor involved in various performance arts and music programs in the city, which doesn’t sound like a bad deal at all.
