When he's not busy ripping through American classics with top-shelf celebs for his ongoing "Carpool Karaoke" segment, Late Late Show host James Corden is apparently studying up on how to almost own someone in a rap battle. Corden faced off against Central Intelligence star Kevin Hart on Wednesday's show for the latest round of "Drop the Mic" and proved his chops by hurling an endless series of insults at one of the biggest comedians on the planet.
Corden immediately took aim at Hart's stature, noting there are "no small actors but you're all small parts" before theorizing that Hart's so little he gets "junior high" whenever he smokes weed. Nice wordplay there, Corden.
But Hart came prepared and kicked off his retaliation with a hilarious Ricky Gervais dig. He also asked the question, "How do you rap with your head up Lin-Manuel's ass?" Hart then focused on Corden's weight, comparing him to a certain marshmallow-inspired Ghostbusters character.
Though the declared victor here could easily be disputed, one thing's for certain: Corden's The Wedding Ringer dig is apt. Remember that movie? No? Exactly.
Thankfully, Hart has left such fare behind. Central Intelligence, starring Hart and prospective presidential candidate Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, slides into theaters June 17 and looks undeniably funny:
Hart has had a busy last few days on the late-night circuit. In addition to battling Corden, he also made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday and talked about the time he pissed off Michael Jordan.
