In addition to saving the world, Chris Pratt unveiled yet another super power this week when he rapped the entirety of “Forgot About Dre” for DJ Whoo Kid’s Whoolywood radio show. The story goes like this: the Guardians of the Galaxy star spent a lot of time listening to Eminem when he was a down and out actor in Maui — before Everwood, The O.C., and, yes, Parks and Recreation. So much so that he still can perform the 14-year-old song on command. YouTube user Trey Tech synced up Pratt’s radio version with the actual track, and the results are pure bliss. Better than Em’s verse — if only for the goofy facial expressions. Check it out above.
VH1 caught up with Pratt at the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere in New York, where he talked about what it takes to play a beloved superhero and all the kinds of special powers his other famous characters happen to have.
