‘It’s S-L-A-T-E, name me Jenny/My ft are so mild, however my rhymes are so heavy.’
Sure, it's simple to get Eminem to pen a darkish theme track to your potential blockbuster Marvel superhero movie. But what if Late Late Show host James Corden and bandleader Reggie Watts teamed up with Venom acto/comic Jenny Slate for a cool contemporary, 1980s hip-hop tackle the toothy Symbiote performed by Tom Hardy? That can be further dope, proper?
In a parody track sketch in honor of the movie opening Friday (Oct. 5), Corden and Watts stroll right into a graffiti-scarred scene carrying what might be described as Fresh Prince of Bel-Air wardrobe cast-offs — flip-up glasses, half-buckled overalls and neon scrunchie bracelets — to discover a group of dancers in Venom masks busting some strikes. "Listen up, we obtained a story you gained't imagine/About an eight foot creature with monstrous enamel," Corden raps over the corny beats.
The low-budget vid principally re-tells the origin story, with Corden reworking into Venom, full with a black skintight morpho swimsuit that he cabbage patches in whereas singing the refrain, "Spittin' venom/Spit, spittin' venom/Spittin' venom/Spit, spittin' venom." Sounding just like the late nice Left Eye from TLC, Slate then bops into the body rocking a crop prime below, after all, overalls, dropping some sick snaky rhymes.
"It's S-L-A-T-E, name me Jenny/My ft are so mild, however my rhymes are so heavy," she raps in her helium voice. "If you wanna transfer like me/You gotta get some momentum/Cuz we're about to show you how you can do the venom."
Bottom line: it's an excellent sophisticated dance that Corden can't fairly nail, and it ends horribly for him, TBH.
