Empire stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard are competing against one another on the upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle — but they also joined forces for a performance of Three 6 Mafia’s “Hard Out Here for a Pimp.”

“Hard Out Here for a Pimp” was written for 2005’s Hustle & Flow, a film that both Henson and Howard starred in. See a clip of their rendition of the Oscar-winning song below, and watch the whole battle when it airs Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
