Bill Nye, the famous TV-scientist of the 1990s now behind his own upcoming Netflix show Bill Nye Saves The World, is complimenting his unusual hipness with an unexpected friendship with Tyler, The Creator. Formerly of the rap collective Odd Future, Tyler, The Creator, has been enlisted to supply the theme song for Nye’s upcoming show. On Saturday, Tyler joined Nye for the video below to discuss the influences of the song and Tyler’s own memories of the show.

As Nye insists, Tyler was the right man for the job as “he’s got the beat.” Describing the song as an homage to the original tune, Nye was pleased that Tyler stuck close to the roots. Nye also managed to seal his G-status by referring to himself and Tyler as "original gangstas.” To hear the theme song and watch the following Bill Nye show, be sure to catch Bill Nye Saves The World on Netflix this Friday.
