In which Dr. Dre discovers Burning Man and writes home to tell his girlfriend.

These days, it can be hard to tell if something on the internet is really real. Or if it’s real, it could be old and not newsworthy. This is one of those things that is probably fake, and definitely old (both in that it’s from 1995 and has been on the internet for years) but it’s also kind of great.

In 1995, Dr. Dre may have stumbled upon Burning Man while location scouting for the “California Love” video. He then may have handwritten a letter to his girlfriend (now wife), Nicole Threatt, talking about how he wants to “get behind this shit and make some loot of these fools"and then also included some really great turns of phrase like "I’m bout to pass out girl, wish I was up in that ass.”

Did mid-1990s Dre really write this? Who’s to say. You’ll have to decide for yourself. But in the meantime, c'mon, just read it!
