Michael Cera Talks Rapping Experience With Too Short

November 12, 2010 (9:01 am) GMT
A video of him getting on stage to rap Short's '2 B**ches' has since become a viral hit, but the actor reveals that the road to there was rather funny.

"" star can now add rapper to his resume after joining onstage to perform an unlikely collaboration at the hip-hop star's recent show in Los Angeles. The geeky actor reveals he was invited to hit the stage with his movie pal at Too Short's Key Club concert last Saturday, November 6 after the rapper learned the pair was big fans of his song "2 B**ches".

Cera says, "I rapped with Too Short. A friend of mine, Clark, and I always sang this song 2 B**ches... It's a graphic tale, basically. It's a detailed account of him taking one b**ch to a strip club, having her pick out a second, the second b**ch, and they go and you know, have sex, all three of them. You can imagine!"

But Cera almost missed out on his big rap break after a "nightmare" experience trying to get a ride to the club, which saw him accidentally leave his cell phone in a cab. He explains, "I got a text message from my friend saying, 'I'm with Short, we're about to go onstage, he's gonna let us sing 2 B**ches, and I was like, 'I'll be right there.' I was, as it happens, at a very important meeting, but I was like this was more important - I wasn't sitting around doing nothing..."

"I get in the cab and the guy says to me, 'I need to get some gas, can you hang with me or do you need to take another cab?' I said, 'Well I'm kind of in a hurry...' so I got out and I realize I left my phone in the car." The star managed to retrieve his phone after a manic chase to stop the cab, but the incident left him wheezing as he finally made it to the Too Short concert. He laughs, "I was catching my breath for an hour."

Video footage of Cera and "" actor Duke's live rap debut has since emerged online.
