*Compton is looking to honor one of its own.
The city’s mayor Aja Brown tells TMZ that she wants to award the record producer, rapper and businessman a key to the city.
According to the website, she’s reached out to Dre’s camp to offer the honor in recognition of his entrepreneurial spirit, which got a 3.2 million boost last week with news of his pending Beats Audio deal with Apple.
Brown tells TMZ she’s also asking Dre, born Andre Young, to help her restore the city, saying it would be great if he got involved in sponsoring performance arts or music programs in the CPT.
