Snoop Dogg Keeps Astronaut’s “Buzz” Going With New Rap Song

With hopes of having senior-citizen rap on lock, original moonwalker Buzz Aldrin – second only to Neil Armstrong in accomplishing the lunar feat – enlisted the help of Snoop Dogg for the single “Rocket Experience,” released yesterday (June 22).

“I want kids interested in space,” Aldrin explained to USA Today about why he decided to try his hand at rhyming. “It’s their future.” Proceeds from the track’s sales will go to the 79-year-old former astronaut’s ShareSpace Foundation. “[Aldrin] pushes kids to achieve their dreams,” Snoop added.

In a comical making-of video for the track on Will Ferrell’s website, funnyordie.com, Snoop dishes on Buzz’s game-changing potential. “Buzz has got the biggest buzz on the streets right now,” he said. “He’s got Talib Kweli and [me] in the studio with him, and I only work with the best.”

Kweli and Soulja Boy also appear in the clip, gushing over the collabo. “To tell [our kids] we hung with Buzz gets your inner geek fired up,” Kwe joked. [Watch below] The video’s most notable cameo, however, is soul legend Quincy Jones, who talks up Aldrin’s “great groove.”

      I was @ the studio when Snoop & the 21st St Crips recorded this. This bitch ass Piru came over with some Hawaiian Punch I literally beat the shit outta his ass. L8tr that night I got so damn thirsty but we only had some red Kool Aid I don’t put red ANYTHING into my body per my 8 Crip sets I rep. I jump into my 93 Dodge Neon and go to Fat Burger & get some Blue Freeze. I then catch Denzel @ the Drive through I get outta my car and pull the strap on that hoe (He’s a Jordan Down’s Blood) I was about to pull the trigger when I catch my girlfriend Mya eating my cheesy tots! I run into the car and fucc her up! ECG-UNIT CRIP 4 LIFE SPIDER LOC 4 LIFE

    “With hopes of having senior-citizen rap on lock”

    Ha! That’s not what’s up, although that cat should probably have grandpuppies by now. I agree rio, dude’s looking like his Uncle Junebug these days. Too much of that good-good.

    That’s cool that Buzz is up on who’s who. Too bad that these kids nowadays probably don’t know who HE is.
