Riz Ahmed & James Corden Mock Kendall Jenner's Pepsi Ad & United Airlines In 'Drop The Mic' Rap Battle!
James Corden faced off against an actual rapper during his beloved “Drop the Mic” rap battle on last night’s (April 17) episode of The Late Late Show – that’s right, Star Wars: Rogue One star Riz Ahmed!
“Am I supposed to be afraid of Riz ’cause he raps? His lyrics lack depth just like when he acts. You might recognize him from some TV shows, or not at all if you don’t pay for HBO,” the 38-year-old host declared.
“This is a blood bath. It’s not a fair fight. It’s like you were overbooked on the United Air flight,” James continued referencing the recent headlines surrounding a United Airlines passenger who was forcefully removed from a flight.
Riz fought back, rapping, “Yeah, I did do Star Wars. I bet that made you mad. Too bad they weren’t trying to cast Jabba the Hut’s dad. Yeah, I had Lena’s baby. It was fun. I was on Girls, but you never touched one… You’re not an emcee, you begged me to let you down gently. I wouldn’t stop this war if Kendall Jenner brought out Pepsis.”
