Big Sean and Tracee Ellis Ross are hilarious together on 'Carpool Karoke'

Posted By on Fri, Sep 22, 2017 at 11:15 AM

The popular "Carpool Karoke" segment from James Corden's The Late Late Show has traveled to Apple Music's online streaming service where more celebrities hangout, and of course, karaoke in the car.

One of the latest installments on Apple Music features Detroit's very own Big Sean and an actress who has some deep Detroit roots — Diana Ross' daughter and the star of ABC's Blackish Tracee Ellis Ross.

We can't show you the full episode because it is exclusively streaming over at Apple, but luckily a small clip from the episode was posted on YouTube and features Ross showing off her rap game with Big Sean in the studio.

Ross hilariously shows up with her own lyrics to go in Big Sean's biggest hit "Bounce Back" and tells Big Sean that she is "TMurda" (complete with some fabulous hoop earrings and a shinny grill) today and she spits out some of her own lyrics that we hope actually becomes a real song.

The episode also features Big Sean and Ross driving around discussing their lives, careers, and family. They even chat about the fact that Ross' mother, Diana Ross, went to Cass Tech, the same high school that Big Sean attended.

Now how about that official collaboration, you two?
