Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a mic? At this point the actor/comedian needs to legitimately add MC to his business card. Brady strolled through the Sway’s Universe studio earlier this week, partially to buzz about his hosting of the BET Honors Awards, and partially to get busy over some instrumental tracks. Brady was one of the first ever participants in Sway’s now-legendary ‘5 Fingers of Death’ rhyme sessions and Sway commented “I have total confidence and 100 percent faith that you have not fallen off” just before dropping a beat.
And Brady wasted no time. The funnyman has already proven just how hard he can go, but this newest session might have been his best freestyle yet (then again, was it completely improv? We’ll leave that for you to decide). Capable of turning on a dime, Wayne Brady drops bars about the Honors awards, The Oscars (“But now the Oscars, there ain’t no doubt / I might not watch em cause they left us out”). Sway keeps pushing the envelope, getting Brady to utilize his talent for impressions and putting him a Bill Cosby-style session that’s can’t be fully described in words.
The entire session ultimately turns into a rundown of current entertainment news, chopped and mocked, tenderly, but Wayne Brady’s sharp comedic wit. Watch the entire clip below, and stay tuned for more MC WB headed your way.
