Watch Chris Pratt spit 'Forgot About Dre' flawlessly

rexfeatures_5901665d.jpg

Chris Pratt has many talents: genuine hilarity; total body transformations and the lesser-valued ability to rap Eminem word-for-word.

In the frenzy surrounding the appearance of his abs as he made the switch from Parks and Recreation to Guardians of the Galaxy, this musical gem was lost to the YouTube archives.

In a radio appearance with the influential DJ Whoo Kid (who is tight with Eminem and 50 Cent, signed to both their labels) on Sirius Radio, Pratt was teased about his presumed music taste.

“Are you into that EDM stuff, you like all that jumping and wiggling? That white people dance shit?” asks DJ Whoo Kid.

“Can’t you tell?” replies Pratt, who then goes on to tell of a time when he and a friend lived in a van in Maui, smoked a lot of weed and listened to Dre’s 2001 on repeat. So much so that he knows every word to the entire album.

His claim is met with scoffs and a challenge. His response? Rapping Eminem’s Forgot About Dre perfectly, and shutting everything down.
