If you haven’t been keeping tabs on The Late Late Show With James Corden’s Drop the Mic rap battles, you’ve been missing out. First there was Anne Hathaway, then there was David Schwimmer (and Rebel Wilson!), and now there’s Kevin Hart.
Watching celebrities insult each other in a friendly way that doesn’t actually make you feel bad for them is a bizarrely enjoyable experience. It’s like someone is saying all the things you’ve thought to yourself but felt too guilty to tweet publicly. Or at least that’s how the previous rap battles have been. The guests coming at James Corden has gotten a little repetitive at this point, since there’s only so much to choose from, but that’s to be expected. Unfortunately, whoever writes these also went the predictable route with Corden’s digs at Kevin Hart, focusing a little too much on his height. We get it, guys. He’s short. We’ve always known this. Next?
All that said, Drop the Mic is still holding its own as something worth watching. But maybe switch it up and have celebrity guests go at each other next time for some fresher material?
