Sunday, HBO premiered Part 1 of the documentary, “The Defiant Ones,” a four-part series profiling the legendary partnership between iconic producers Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovene. Directed by Allen Hughes, it’s a fascinating look into the music industry, going back decades, and well worth a viewing. You will learn cool stuff, and gain insight into two of the most important figures in modern music history.
We spoke with Hughes ahead of the premiere, about the process of making the film, what he learned about his subjects, the culture wars of the 1990s, and much more.
Listen to the show, watch the doc.
