No more Mr. Nice James! After hosting the Tony Awards on Sunday and doing a round of Carpool Karaoke with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Late Late Show host James Corden decided to get down and dirty for another epic “Drop the Mic” rap battle.
On Wednesday night, the Brit challenged Kevin Hart to his new, hilariously ruthless segment, and the Central Intelligence actor was certainly up for it.
Naturally, Corden went after the petite star’s height quickly, declaring, “When you smoke weed, you get junior high,” and adding, “There are no small actors but you’re all small parts.” He threw in one last zinger, rapping, “You might Think Like a Man, but you’re built like a boy!”
Hart then happily went after Corden’s weight, saying he made “the old Jimmy Kimmel” feel thin, and adding, “Congrats on Ghostbusters, I am a fan. It’s nice to see your return as the Marshmallow Man!”
He then slammed the breakout star’s lackluster career rapping, “I admit, most people are nice to your face until they get home and realize you’re not Ricky Gervais.”
Hart even found a way to diss the show’s most popular segment, saying, “Carpool Karaoke, how long that last? How do you rap with your head up Lin-Manuel’s a**?” referencing the recent episode with the Hamilton star.
Not one to let that slide, Corden threw in another shot, declaring, “You’ve had quite a career, but real talk, you’ll always be known as the guy who’s not Chris Rock.”
But that wasn’t enough for a victory as the crowd almost unanimously named Hart the victor. Watch the clip now!
