Watch Tracee Ellis Ross Spit a Verse Over Big Sean’s “Bounce Back”
After premiering in early August, Apple Music's adaptation of James Corden's Late Late Show staple, Carpool Karaoke, is in full effect. This past weekend, Tracee Ellis Ross and Big Sean became the latest to appear on the show, and for her part, Ross dropped some bars over the Detroit rapper's I Decided hit, "Bounce Back."
Ross, who stars in ABC's Black-ish, put her comedic chops to good use as she rocked a gold grille in her mouth and assumed the persona of T-Murda, skillful MC. She manages to make flexing sound pretty effortless for someone who doesn't rap full time.
"Don't call me Tracee, It's T-Murda/Rhymes like a subpoena, 'bout to serve ya/Big Sean raised the bar, I raise it further/ Spitting verses ears ain't never heard of," she spits over the instrumental as Sean Don stands beside her. In certain parts of the video they're in a car. In others, they're in a vocal booth.
T-Murda goes on to reference her acting roles on Girlfriends and Black-ish before ending her verse with a one-liner to end all one-liners. "My inhibitions, I squash them/feminist like boss, hun. My mom is Diana Ross, son," she spits. In case you didn't know, Tracee is, indeed, the daughter of legendary Motown singer, Diana Ross. Well done, Tracee, well done.
