Rapping isn’t for everyone. Even the most musical of people have learned this the hard way. This week, that lesson was served to Pitch Perfect 2‘s Brittany Snow while stopping by The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Luckily, Coolio doesn’t seem like the kind of person who takes himself too seriously these days. He’s the same person who got a misspelled Juggalo tattoo, after all.
