Nick Jonas showed off his more mature side with his latest album Last Year Was Complicated, and now he’s showing off that he can do more than sing. Well, sort of. The pop star put his rap skills to the test by battling comedian Kevin Hart.
Hart’s Chocolate Droppa character has been battle rapping all sorts of characters. He explained in the beginning of the video how people were criticizing him for only going toe-to-toe with rappers, so he went “mainstream” and tapped Jonas to participate.
Dubbed “Vanilla Wafer,” Jonas starts off with a pretty straightforward and simple rhyme that doesn’t have much flare to it. “I’m the Drake of this equation/ Meek Mill here, what you doing?/ Why you waiting?” which draws a laugh from Hart and his crew.
It’s all in the name of comedy, though, and Hart brings the best moment when he stands with his back to Jonas, flexes and proclaims, “That’s muscles in my back, motherf——!”
