Allen Hughes on the experience of directing 'The Defiant Ones'

Hosted by  • 

Director Allen Hughes tells us how he got Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre to participate in his massive HBO documentary project The Defiant Ones -- along with everyone else in the music industry -- from Bruce Springsteen to Ice Cube to the interview-averse Patti Smith. Hughes also talks about how this series led to an emotional revelation of his own -- finally processing the deaths of hip hop icons Tupac Shakur and Eazy-E.
