Cara Delevingne and Dave Franco Brutally Rip Apart James Corden in Drop the Mic Rap Battle
By Rachel McRady
Drop the Mic three-way! On Wednesday night, James Corden invited two famous guests to The Late Late Show to compete in his new headline-making skit “Drop the Mic.” Corden brought out fellow Brit Cara Delevingne and actor Dave Franco to challenge him in the rap battle.
The pair were game and didn’t attempt to hold back. Corden kicked things off by getting in Franco’s face.
“Don’t worry, there’s still time, you’ll get discovered, but I’m pretty sure we actually meant to book your brother,” he said of actor James Franco. Corden then turned on Delevingne, rapping, “You’re perfect for Suicide Squad, I’m being heartfelt, because when I see you try to act it makes me want to kill myself.”
The supermodel wasted no time responding, “You’ll kill yourself, you promise? Is that a fact? I’ve never heard a better reason for me to act. I can see it now, the headlines about me, ‘Cara Delevingne: The Woman Who Saved Late Night TV.’”
Franco was not going to be one-upped, ripping into the Suicide Squad star, saying, “Cara Delevingne part of Taylor Swift’s scene, well here’s some ‘Bad Blood’ if you think I’m being mean. You think that you’re an actor in movies right now? Trying to hide an accent thicker than your eyebrows.”
