Dr. Dre is one of the most revered legends in the history of hip hop.
From beats to rhymes to the production of high-end headphones, the NWA co-founder has been involved in just about every aspect of the rap world.
But for all his beefs over the years, it’s been quite a while since Dre felt the need to publicly roast one of his rivals.
So it’s good to see his skills are still sharp.
Over the weekend, Dre posted the below photo of himself and his daughter, Truly Young.
“My daughter got accepted in USC all on her own. No jail time!!!” he captioned the pic.
We probably don’t need to tell you that Dre is referencing the college bribery scandal.
The situation has already resulted in the arrests of actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, along with indictments for dozens of other wealthy parents.
So it’s not surprising that Dre would have a laugh at some of these desperate parents while celebrating his own daughter’s success.
Not surprisingly, Truly was quite proud of her achievement as well, writing on Instagram:
“All my hard work paid off. I’m going to film school.
“I’m really just the happiest girl in the world.”
It’s tempting to declare a flawless victory in Dre’s favor, but as many on social media have pointed out, Truly had quite a leg up on her competition during the admissions process.
Back in 2013, Dre and his longtime partner Jimmy Iovine donated $70 million to USC in order to establish the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.
Yes, dude has a program named after him at the school.
Now, we’re not saying Truly didn’t deserve to be accepted
But we are saying that if Dre had a pet gerbil that he really wanted to attend USC, the admissions board would find a way to make it happen.
“Wait @drdre she got in ‘on her own,’ but you happen to have a program named after you at USC … ” one fan commented on Dre’s post.
“All on her own? These schools know which students have rich/famous parents. I’m sure they knew about your donation,” wrote another.
“Why would they turn down a kid who’s dad donated $70 million?”
The backlash was so swift and harsh that Dre eventually deleted the post.
This is a guy who’s gone toe-to-toe with Suge Knight and refused to back down, so if you needed an indication of how much this scandal has rocked the foundations of power, look no further.
Truly has also deleted her posts on the subject.
Probably good to lay low on this sort of thing for a while.
