Ellen DeGeneres and Ice Cube battled it out on Monday (October 6), but there were no raps involved. Instead, they challenged one another to see who had the best pick-up lines in an icebreaker challenge on the comedian's daytime show.
Standing in front of a makeshift bar, Ellen kicked things off with, “Come here often?” Cube, unimpressed, was left asking, “That’s it?” The challenge was clearly on.
Cube, who was on the show promoting the October 17 release of the upcoming animated film, "The Book of Life", and Ellen somehow managed to hold their composure. "Are you from Memphis?” Cube asked Ellen. "‘Cause you’re the only ten I see.” Ellen struck back at Cube with a classic: "You with all those curves and me no brakes."
Eventually, DeGeneres took home the win, uttering “I think I need a library card ‘cause I’m gonna check you out” moments before the timer ran out.
Along with "The Book of Life," in which he voices Candle Maker alongside Channing Tatum and Zoe Saldana, Cube has also been working on "Straight Outta Compton", an N.W.A biopic. Besides movies, he's also prepping for the October 21 release of his next album, Everythang’s Corrupt.
