Big Sean and LL Cool J joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show yesterday, April 20, for a game of none other than Pictionary.
Fallon recruited Rose Byrne from the new film Adult Beginners to join forces with LL Cool J who hosts the new show Lip Sync Battle. Fallon called on Dark Sky Paradise rapper, Big Sean to help him out.
Before the game began, LL Cool J came clean to declare,
"I can't draw," he admitted. "I can't draw at all, I just got to get that out there." Fallon turned to Byrne to relay that this may cause a disadvantage for her chances to win. Byrne joked, "Really? Why did you agree to do this?"
After a little probing, Byrne got the Lip Sync Battle host to guess teaspoon, the correct word. Fallon and Big Sean seemed to have a sharper connection. The rapper was able to guess relatively quickly that Fallon was trying to illustrate the phrase, "when pigs fly".
LL Cool J may not be the best at Pictionary, but the New York native rapper seems to enjoy his current hosting gig that allows fans to see their favorite celebrities lip sync to some of the post popular songs, both old and new. In a past interview with Hiphopdx last year, the rapper shared his feelings on how his music has influenced rappers today.
"I don't try to take acclaim for anything. I just do what I do, and I let the fans decide all of that," he said. "I try to be sincere and honest about whatever I make. When people would try to come at me during that time, I would respond accordingly. It's not even scientific like that with me. I'm just trying to have fun with sh*t. I'm not trying to say that I paved the way for anybody. True, that song ["Jack the Ripper"] probably made those types of record more popular, but Kool Moe Dee and Busy Bee had a very famous battle that was caught on tape, and they went back and forth. Battling has been around for years and groups like The Treacherous Three, Furious 5 and Sugarhill Gang battled. What I pride myself on is being able to adapt and perform many different styles over different eras. There isn't one style that people can't say that I haven't succeeded at."
