Daveed Diggs Popped By 'Sesame Street' For A Rap Battle, Because Sometimes We Do Get Nice Things
The world learned Daveed Diggs’s name with his star-making turn in Hamilton. The fast-rapping sensation has since popped up on Blackish, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and will be a part of the Snowpiercer TV show. But today he has achieved a unique honor, scoring a credit on Sesame Street.
Check Diggs throwing down rhymes about the importance of eating your veggies, as he lends his velvety voice to a rapping carrot.
Lending voice to the sweet potato is Rafael Casal, a performance poet who stars alongside Diggs in Blindspotting, a buddy comedy the pair co-wrote. The film won praise out of its Sundance debut and will be hitting SXSW ahead of a summer theatrical release. So fingers crossed, maybe one of us Overlords can snatch a review of this promising pic next month.
