There have been talks that the legendary Mike Tyson seemingly gave Dr. Dre drugs. Cole Bennett recently made an appearance on Hot Ones with host Sean Evans. The Lyrical Lemonade founder is currently fresh off the release of new videos he directed for Lil Yachty and blink-182. Bennett reflected on his directorial videography, including the competing bucket list moments that presented themselves on the set of the 2020 video for Eminem’s “Godzilla” track featuring the late Juice WRLD.
“This video was like no other,” Bennett said. “It was one of those things. Like, growing up being a fan of hip-hop music, music videos, and just pop culture. I mean, I remember Eminem as being the biggest thing in the world so to get to work with him so closely and feel that energy and feel him be so ready to just log in all these hours and be so receptive to my ideas and my vision for things to, you know, a song that he had created was really, really cool.”
Mike Tyson offered mushrooms to Dr. Dre
The video, which ultimately bagged a Video of the Year nomination at the VMAs, features cameos from Dr. Dre and Mike Tyson. According to Bennett, Tyson was kind enough to offer him shrooms during the shoot.
“Mike Tyson was off shrooms,” Bennett said. “He offered me some shrooms which, you know, was a bucket list moment for sure. But, you know, being on set and leading this vision was also a bucket list moment so I had to pick my poison there. Didn’t do the shrooms.”
