Did you know Ryan Phillippe can rap?
The Cruel Intentions actor and star of the USA Network’s Shooter series demonstrated his music skills and talks about his love of hip-hop on the SiriusXM satellite radio show Sway in the Morning this week.
“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.”
He launched into a rap that referenced his “P!” arm tattoo that pays tribute to Sean Price. Phillippe got inked in 2015 a couple of months after the rapper’s death.
He also mentioned rapper Nate Dogg, who died in 2011.
The song is not all gloom and doom; Phillippe also rapped about taking “honeys” to bed and sneaked in mentions of two of his most famous movies.
“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.”
Phillippe, who has three kids, including two with ex-wife and Cruel Intentions co-stars Reese Witherspoon, also rapped, “I’m trying to keep it clean / ‘Cause I’m a father and daddy / If you know what I mean.”
“I can still get inspired,” Phillippe rapped. “Like when an actor comes on Sway / and starts spitting 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.”
