Chris Pratt is having one hell of a week. First, his movie “Guardians of the Galaxy” has the biggest August opening ever. Now, he’s expertly rapping Dr. Dre songs on the radio.
Let me explain: Pratt paid a visit to the Sirius XM hip-hop station Shade45 to promote his film. While there, DJ Whoo Kid asked Pratt what type of music he liked. Pratt responded by saying,
I remember when Eminem first come out with his album, Chronic: 2001, that was kind of like my Peter Quill mix. Me and my friend lived in a van in Maui and we listened to that and smoked weed every day. I tell you what. I know every word to that album.
A. Living in a van in Maui and smoking weed every day sounds pretty great. B. The DJ challenged Pratt to prove his undying love for the Chronic. Pratt stepped up to the plate without hesitation.
He went on to rap an entire verse from “Forgot About Dre” flawlessly. It’s really impressive actually. If this whole acting thing doesn’t work out, Pratt might have a job as a rapper.
