Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Deon Cole! (cheers and applause) (I Ain't No Joke plays) I ain't no joke I used to let the mic smoke Now I slam it when I'm done and make sure it's broke When I'm gone, no one gets on 'cause I won't let Nobody press up and mess up the scene I set I like to stand in a crowd And watch the people wonder, "Damn" But think about it then you'll understand I'm just an addict addicted to music Maybe it's a habit, I gotta use it Even if it's jazz or the quiet storm I hook a beat up, convert it into hip-hop form Write a rhyme in graffiti in every show you see me in Deep concentration 'cause I'm no comedian Jokers are wild if you wanna be tame I treat you like a child then you're gonna be named Another enemy, not even a friend of me 'Cause you'll get fried in the end when you pretend to be Competing 'cause I just put your mind on pause And I can beat you when you compare my rhyme wit yours I wake you up and as I stare in your face you seem stunned Remember me, the one you got your idea from? But soon you start to suffer, but you only get rougher When you start to stutter that's when you had enough of Biting it, I make you choke, you can't provoke You can't cope, you should have broke because I ain't no joke I hold the microphone like a grudge B'll hold the record so the needle don't budge I hold a conversation 'cause when I invent I nominated my DJ for president When I'm senile, people freestyle, going steadily So pucker up and whistle my melody But whatever you do, don't miss one There'll be another rough rhyme after this one Guide you out of triple state darkness When it get dark again then I'ma spark this Microphone 'cause the heat is on, you see smoke And I'm finished when the beat is gone, I'm no joke (cheers and applause) Chrissy: Oh! That's nasty.
(Chrissy groans) - LL: Oh! - New mic drop! New mic drop! (laughing) You fanning the mic off? - Fanning the mic off! The mic is too hot, baby! - The mic is too hot? Shout out to Erik B and Rakim.
- Yes, sir! - You know what I'm saying? (cheers and applause) - You know? Chrissy? - Chrissy: What? - What do you feel? - I can I be honest? - LL: Yeah! - I have no idea what that song was.
(laughter) - Yeah, that was - Chrissy: I never heard it! I'm sorry, - but the passion you had - That felt strategic there.
That felt tactical.
It's all about the passion! You're about to get a lot of e-mail.
I know! I know! So, Deon, what was the thinking behind performing Erik B and Rakim? Oh, because, man, they were no joke! They came they came for they came to get down and they got down and made history.
- And that's what I'm here to do tonight! - (cheers and applause) Deon: Yes, sir! LL: Karrueche what'd you think about Deon's performance? - (Deon laughs) - That was not easy! It was very fast and Deon was committed, - so I'm I'm gonna give you the props.
- Deon: Thank you very much! - Appreciate it.
- Karrueche: You killed it.
LL: Nice! You can head over to the VIP.
(cheers and applause) Aw, man, Karrueche brought the claws out, but Deon ain't taking no shorts.
This one's already epic.
Stay right there 'cause the battle is about to get hot.
- Ooh.
LSB, baby.
- It's LSB, baby.
(laughs) I ain't no joke, I used to let the mic smoke Now I slam it when I'm done and make sure it's broke It takes two to make a thing go right Lip Sync Battle is back! Deon Cole has mastered stand-up and acting.
And now he's out to secure an LSB championship for himself.
Can he make it a cold world for Karrueche? I guess it's time to find out.
I don't want to lose.
I want this belt.
I need this belt.
(laughing) I already carved a place out on my wall for it.
No, I didn't! She's my girl! Very talented.
My my homie.
- Thank you! I love you so much! - I know! Anytime we're around each other, definitely nothing but love, but Boo! There's a strain today.
(Karrueche speaking) It's like we don't know each other today, 'cause we are up against each other, and she has to go down.
Deon: Ladies love Cool J! - (laughing) - Man: They don't mess around.
This is great! Deon: It's just a great song.
Even if I lose, it's still gonna be a very unique performance that should go down in Lip Sync Battle history.
(cheering) (cheers and applause) (Torn playing) (LL laughing) I thought I saw a man brought to life He was warm, he came around like he was dignified (laughing) He showed me what it was to cry Well you couldn't be that man I adore - You don't seem to know - (LL laughing) Seem to care what your heart is for Well, I don't know him anymore There's nothin' where he used to lie The conversation has run dry That's what's going on Nothing's fine, I'm torn I'm all out of faith This is how I feel I'm cold and I am chained, lying naked on the floor Illusion never changed Into something real I'm wide awake and I can see The perfect sky is torn I'm all out of faith This is how I feel I'm cold and I'm ashamed Bound and broken on the floor You're a little late I'm already torn Torn Oh (object shatters) (glass shatters) (wood breaking) (table clatters) (glass shatters) (chair clatters) - (glass breaks) - (cheers and applause) (LL laughing) (laughter) (cheers and applause continues) - LL: I got you, baby.
- Chrissy: I felt that! I felt that! Your emo hands and your emo sweatshirt.
- (LL laughs) - Chrissy: I felt it all! The couch! - (cheers and applause) - (bleep) that couch.
LL: Karrueche was Deon a convincing Natalie Imbruglia or what? - What what you think? - Yes.
I'm convinced.
I am so convinced.
I'm still in shock.
When you started throwing stuff, I was like, "What is going on?" - But you definitely got some things off your chest.
- (laughing) I don't know what's going in your life, but amen.
- (laughing) - LL: Amen.
That was wicked! That was amazing.
So, Deon Deon, you can head over to the VIP.
- Thank y'all.
Peace, man.
- Wow.
Thanks, Chrissy.
LL: No doubt.
Chrissy: This battle is so, so good that now even I am torn.
I need a commercial break, please.
Absolutely.
I got you, Chrissy.
When LSB returns, we'll find out how Karrueche plans to make sure the belt goes home with her.
Come on back.
It's Lip Sync Battle.
Nothing's fine, I'm torn I'm all out of faith This is how I feel It takes two to make a thing go right LSB returns and Karrueche Tran is primed and ready to take the stage.
Let's see how she worked her magic to bring to life an unforgettable performance.
I come right in? - Woman: Yeah.
- (voices overlapping) Let's go from the top! Karrueche: I've never performed before.
So, to to For me, this is really breaking out of my shell.
It's doing something I've never done before.
(screams) I chose this artist because I feel like I relate to her story.
And her rise to success, and her growth and her strength.
And she's bad-ass.
She's a bad-ass woman, and I'm a bad-ass woman too.
So I definitely connect with her, and I connect with the song.
Alright! Time to go to the big stage! Let's do this! Deon, I'm going to crush you! The point where this all really came together was me being on that stage rehearsing with the dancers, and everybody was watching.
It was just kind of like, "Oh man, this is really happening.
" Deon, I adore you.
I admire you.
You're great, but, um - (mock growling) - (both laughing) I'm gonna win.
