Nerds: Dr. Dre Should Be Your Favorite Rapper

By Alexis C. Madrigal

In an interview with Vibe Magazine, famed producer and rapper Dr. Dre dropped the most exciting tidbit the space hip hop world has ever heard.

Dr. Dre is working on an instrumental album about what the various planets sound like!

An instrumental album is something I've been wanting to do for a long time. I have the ideas for it. I want to call it The Planets. I don't even know if I should be saying this, but fuck it. [Laughs.] It's just my interpretation of what each planet sounds like. I'm gonna go off on that. Just all instrumental. I've been studying the planets and learning the personalities of each planet. I've been doing this for about two years now just in my spare time so to speak. I wanna do it in surround sound. It'll have to be in surround sound for Saturn to work.

Quick, somebody tell NASA! Ok, I'll do it.

Update: Accidentally left a 'p' out of one of Dre's titles up there. Now added.
