Method Man, Hailey Baldwin hosting James Corden's Drop the Mic series
Another one of James Corden’s viral ventures is shaping up: TBS has tapped Method Man and model Hailey Baldwin to host the upcoming rap battle series Drop the Mic, based on Corden’s popular segment from The Late Late Show.
The concept will see four celebs from the entertainment, music, sports, and pop culture fields competing against each other in a rap battle — much like we’ve seen from Kevin Hart, Dave Franco, Rebel Wilson, and Usain Bolt. The studio audience will then vote to pick the winner.
As announced Wednesday, Drop the Mic will premiere on TBS on Tuesday, May 2 at 10 p.m. ET. Michael Bloom, the network’s senior vice president of unscripted and special event programming, promised the hosts and producers “will make sure our celebrity competitors bring their ‘A’ game to the stage.”
