I just finished up watching The Defiant Ones on HBO and simply put, it’s phenomenal.
HBO tells the stories of music pioneers Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine and how they eventually converged and signed a $3 billion deal to sell Beats to Apple. There’s much more to it than that one sentence, but I’ll let you watch for yourself. If you don’t you’re sincerely missing out.
For example, The Defiant Ones tells full story behind Dr. Dre discovering Eminem. Here’s part of it:
And there’s a lot more where that came from.
The Defiant Ones also covers stories about artists like Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, N.W.A., Stevie Nicks, Gwen Stefani, and many more. If you’re at all interested in the fascinating histories of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, entrepreneurship, or the last 40 years of music in general, get your popcorn ready and binge these four episodes ASAP.
