Celebrities We Want To See On Drop the Mic

Updated March 30, 2019 4.5k votes 218 voters35 items

List RulesVote up the individuals who should be contestants on the next season of Drop the Mic. Only add celebrities who have not been contestants on the show before.

Celebrities on Drop the Mic have to balance the funny and their flow. Some contestants are amazing freestyle rappers while others are comedians with quick wits. A few actresses, actors, and musicians who should make the Drop the Mic cast list have even won Grammy Awards - not that it would necessarily help them once they went head-to-head. No matter their freestyle skills, these are celebrities we would love to see compete on Drop the Mic.

Which celebs would make great Drop the Mic contestants? Eminem would have to be near the top, he got his start winning rap battles as a teenager before releasing some of the most popular songs of the late-1990s and early-2000s, so he already knows how to win. Lil Wayne would be a fun competitor to watch go head to head with Eminem in an all-star episode.

It would be unforgettable to watch Sir Paul McCartney battle, well, anyone. Other celebs who would make great Drop the Mic contestants include Tyler Perry, Britney Spears, and Will Smith.

Who would you most like to see on Drop the Mic? Vote the best should-be cast members up to the top of this list and please add anyone we may have missed.
