We all know James Corden for his amazing and hilarious carpool karaoke. What’s equally as excellent? His rap battles, titled “Drop The Mic.” The most recent battle was between James, Dave Franco, and Cara Delevingne, and let’s just say things got heated. We’ll recap for you.
The host with the most really gave it his all. We know he’s talented (duh, we’ve seen carpool karaoke) but his rapping is pretty on point too. Corden began the battle by slamming Dave: “I’m pretty sure we actually meant to book your brother,” and the ‘Dave Franco is no James Franco’ jokes seemed to go on throughout the whole thing.
James did throw in a similar taunt to Cara when he said: “you’ve got that in common, you’re only famous now ‘cause your older sibling’s awesome.” Referring, of course, to Cara’s sister Poppy Delevingne who is also a model, harsh! James also attacked Cara’s acting saying that it makes him want to ‘kill himself,’ referring to her current role in Suicide Squad. Although Cara came back from the insult saying: “you’ll kill yourself, is that a fact? I’ve never heard a better reason for me to act.”
Cara owned the night from her rapping down to her wardrobe. Her boyfriend jeans and embellished jacket were outfit goals!
Cara’s rap toward Dave was the best of the night with lines like: “I’ve never seen your movies and I definitely won’t, Now You See Me…. No sorry I don’t.” As well as the all-important line: “Now over to Dave, you’re just like blood, you’re thicker than water and you destroyed Scrubs.” For non-Scrubs fans it was the ninth season of Scrubs, which focused entirely around Dave’s character, which caused a plummet in ratings and finally a cancellation of the show. Cara played that well!
The insult of the night? When Cara called out the two men saying that she’s dated better looking girls than the two of them combined! (Which they seemed to agree to).
Dave’s rap was sub-par to both Cara and James. He did call Cara out over her acting career, mentioning that her acting was bad because she’s “trying to hide an accent thicker than [her] eyebrows.” Come on Dave, we all know Cara is eyebrow goals! He also pointed out Cara’s unique name telling her she might be more famous if people could spell it!
His attack of Corden focused on James’ weight (which Cara also touched on) and his hosting. He called James a “less talented, much fatter Mr. Bean,” which Corden actually took as a compliment! Dave’s best line of the night was directed toward Corden as he said “Beat me in a battle? Now that’s a reach, you’d have to steal lines from Michelle Obama’s speech.” A slam at both James and the Trump campaign; it got a big reaction!
Overall results? No one could top Cara Delevingne! Although after the two other competitors bowed to her she bowed back. They all did well, no bad blood after that!
