Buzz Aldrin - Gangsta'

Wednesday, August 26, 2009
Buzz Aldrin just released his very first rap song, called "Rocket Experience." He cracks me up - what a good sport, and he's probably the only rapper you will ever see here at HCDSM.
“I’m not too good at carrying a tune, but I do have rhythm,” says Aldrin, who got the idea from a family member who felt the genre would have a broad reach. Aldrin’s ShareSpace Foundation, which promotes science and exploration, is one of three beneficiaries of the song’s iTunes sales. “I want kids interested in space. It’s their future”….[Aldrin] says rapping with Snoop Dogg proved almost as daunting as space. “Snoop had this great hand language going as he sang, which was hard for me,” Aldrin says. “But when it comes to getting people’s attention, comedy goes a long way.”

The first is the official video, the second is the "making of" with Snoop Dog and Soulja Boy.



Go, Buzz!

Very cool, and not at all surprising.

Then again, you know my feelings about Buzz Aldrin.

Them astronauts are just such a multi-talented bunch...

When at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, Alan Bean's paintings of men on the moon was enjoying an inaugural run on the 40th Anniversary of the Moon Landing. Very talented.
