It would be the United States’ first Olympics since 2002.

Dr. Dre has joined the Board of Directors of LA 2024, a group campaigning to get Los Angeles to host the 2024 Olympics. (Paris is also vying to host these summer games.)

Other members of LA 2024’s Board of Directors include opera singer Placído Domingo, former LA Laker and the team’s current President of Basketball Operations Magic Johnson, Lakers owner Jeannie Buss, Disney CEO Bob Iger and retired NBA player Jason Collins (the first openly gay NBA player).

The final decision will be made by the International Olympics Committee and announced in Lima, Peru on September 13. [via Pitchfork]
