Yesterday, the Internet’s new Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, surprised the hell out of everyone with a very credible performance of Eminem’s ‘Forgot About Dre,” that basically blew the roof off the world wide web. What can the guy NOT do? A pasty white guy from Minnesota who spends much of his downtime in the woods of Montana hunting deer should not be able to rap like that, right?
Well, it’s the not first time we’ve been surprised by the rapping skills of lily white celebrities no business trying their hands at rap. Here are eight other awesome instances of pasty white celebrities and their surprisingly impressive rap skills. I’ve even taken the liberty of ranking them from worst to best.
