We’ve gotten plenty of actors turned rappers throughout the years including Drake, Donald Glover, Mack Wilds, Shia LaBeouf, and even Harry Potter! Now Shooter star, Ryan Phillippe is ready to prove to the world that he’s more than just an actor.
Phillippe appeared on SiriusXM’s Sway in the Morning on Tuesday to spit a few bars for host Sway. It’s a popular segment on the show and Ryan wasn’t afraid to shy away from it when asked.
“Most of my playlists are like a 19-year-old’s. I listen to all the new, young stuff, everything in between,” he said. “Hip hop is the music of my life, man. It’s just like, that’s just it for me.”
Throughout his rap, the actor name drops a few deceased celebrities including Nate Dogg and Sean Price, which Ryan paid tribute to by tatting the letter “P!” on his arm after his death. Phillippe also made plenty witty nods to a few of his famous movies. Can you spot them below?
“Crash into me with cruel intentions / and I’ll take away your girl / and do some things that we won’t mention,” he rapped. “I dunno know what you did last summer / in the front seat of my Caddy / No I don’t drive a Hummer.”
He even mentioned fellow actor turned rapper Shia for a quick shoutout.
“I can still get inspired like when an actor comes on ‘Sway’ and starts spittin’ some fire like Shia / Shia was nice man / LaBeouf was a beast and there will be no disrespect ’cause I don’t want no LaBeef.”
