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.”

Watch the full battle below…

'Silicon Valley' Cast Is Divided Between Snapchat & Instagram!

We are not alone! HBO’s Silicon Valley cast is also struggling between two social messaging platforms – Snapchat or Instagram Stories?

“To be honest, just because I’m too lazy I don’t want to build another set of followers on another app somewhere, I just save my Snapchat videos and put them on Instagram so I’m robbing them of their goods,” Thomas Middleditch, who plays Richard Hendricks on the show, told Mashable.

“I’m a big consumer of Instagram and so I was on Snapchat for awhile but, again, once they brought in Insta story I was like, ‘Well, why the f*ck do I need to use Snapchat anymore?’,” Amanda Crew, who plays the level-headed character Monica, added.

“I’m having this weird micro-crisis about social media in general I think this year,” Thomas, 35, continued. “Sometime around November it starts to feel like, ‘Oh this started out as fun thing but now it’s like it’s being used against us,’ all of our information aggregated and targeted and sectioned off.”

Pictured: Thomas and Amanda joining co-stars Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani and Martin Starr, as well as co-creator Mike Judge, executive producers Clay Tarver and Alec Berg at the season four world premiere of Silicon Valley on Tuesday (April 11) in San Francisco, Calif.
