The Defiant Ones Features Rare Footage of Eminem and Dr. Dre Creating “My Name Is”
I’ve been looking forward to HBO‘s The Defiant Ones since it was announced. It’s a four-part documentary series revolving around the partnership and success of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. The documentary took three and a half years to finish after director Allen Hughes poured over hundreds of hours of footage and conducted in-depth interviews.
The final episode of the series airs tonight, which will focus on the discovery of Eminem. It contains rare footage of the first time Eminem and Dre were in the studio together, and Em came up with the lyrics for “My Name Is”. HBO released a large chunk of the episode, allowing us to see some of the footage along with the story of how Eminem and Dr. Dre met.
Every Hip-Hop fan should watch The Defiant Ones. Really, every music fan in general should watch it. You can stream the entire series on HBO GO.
