Anna Kendrick Raps on The Ellen Show September 2018

Anna Kendrick's Epic Rap on The Ellen Show Will Take You Back to Her Pitch Perfect Days

If there's one thing we've always admired about Anna Kendrick, it's her "respect for the streets." It's been a while since the A Simple Favor star showed off her musical skills, but during her Thursday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show she did just that. During the show, Kendrick requested a "simple favour" from DeGeneres — to send out specific tweets from her Twitter account, including one that said, "A Simple Favor is so amazing, it'll get you laid." In return, the comedian asked the actress to perform M.O.P's "Ante Up," which she rapped along to in a film.

"It's so embarrassing," Kendrick responded, laughing. "I was really feeling the rap. I say that you have to have respect for the streets, which is how I try to live my life." Thankfully she agreed and graced us all with a performance done completely from memory. It really takes us back to those glorious Pitch Perfect riff-off days. Watch Kendrick show off her impressive rap skills above!
