Who says rappers aren’t kid friendly? Dr. Dre and Timbaland shocked students at a Culver City High School when they appeared at their graduation party. Dr. Dre introduced Timbaland, who performed the tunes “The Way I Are,” “Promiscuous Girl,” “Carry Out” and “Say Something” on a stage inside the school’s gymnasium. Students invited had no idea the hip-hop masterminds were the guests of honor.
The surprise performance, which was sponsored by Hewlett-Packard and Interscope Records, was recorded for an online documentary. HP also donated $10,000 worth of computer equipment to the school. We’re a little mortified about performing “The Way I Are” at a high school — kids need all of the help they can get with grammar. The memories from this surprise performance far outweigh the bad grammar. Dre Day, indeed.
