What’s the difference between USC and your favorite team? Well for one, Dr. Dre is a huge Trojans fan.
D.R.E., the rapper and producer behind classic album The Chronic and dozens of other hit records, is a Los Angeles native who grew up just a few miles from USC’s campus in Compton. He visited with the Trojans Friday night and offered words of support prior to Saturday night’s primetime contest with No. 5 Stanford.
Dre isn’t the first notable figure interim coach Ed Orgeron has welcomed to the campus. Ray Lewis and Marcus Allen also spoke to the Trojans last month.
Orgeron himself has provided a boost to the Trojans. Since taking over for Lane Kiffin in September, the Trojans are 4-1 and now 7-3 overall. A win over Stanford would be huge for the program.
