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.”
Katy Perry and Rita Ora meet up with designer Jeremy Scott while attending the Moschino and Candy Crush Celebrate Coachella 2017 party on Saturday night (April 15) at a private residence in Coachella, Calif.
There were a bunch of stars at the event and they kept the party going until 5am!
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Riz Ahmed takes the lead in his brand new film, City of Tiny Lights!
The flick follows Tommy Akhtar (Ahmed), cricket fan, devoted son to an ailing father and deadbeat private eye. He’s got an office above a cab firm, a taste for cigarettes and bourbon, and a finely tuned moral compass that he keeps hidden behind a sharp cynicism. When Tommy walks into his office one morning to find high-class prostitute Melody (Billie Piper) seeking his help, he’s launched into a story that plays as an utterly original modern noir.
“Proud to announce #CityOfTinyLights will be in cinemas April 7th,” Riz captioned with his Instagram post. “A noir thriller representing the London I see every day but rarely on screen.”
Pictured: Riz all suited up joining co-star Billie at their City of Tiny Lights photo call held at the BFI Southbank on Tuesday (March 28) in London, England.
