Old Letter Surfaces from Dr. Dre's First Encounter with Burning Man

Dr. Dre is not a name one would normally associate with Burning Man.

At least not in 1995.

Although the yearly gathering is now known to play host to celebrities like P. Diddy and Susan Sarandon, that didn't used to be the case.

In 1995, Dr. Dre made a visit to Nevada to shoot the video for the iconic hit "California Love", which helped to launch the career of fellow rapper Tupac.

Dre writes to his lady Nicole about "a bunch of naked crazy motherfuckers...putting up some type of giant woodman."

The letter is reminiscent of simpler times, when Burning Man was a gathering of only 5,000 people and didn't include Silicon Valley execs or performances from Skrillex.

Burning Man takes place August 28th - September 5th.
