Kevin Hart And Will Ferrell Share Their ‘Get Hard’ Playlists On Spotify
Before the new action comedy flick Get Hard goes hard in theaters, Will Ferrell (who plays James King) and Kevin Hart (Darnell) curated their own themed Spotify playlists.
Here’s the Spark notes: James King, a banker who’s accused of tax evasion and is prepping for his prison sentence, made a playlist of songs to listen to while he’s locked up. So obviously “Let It Go” by Idina Menzel made the cut. Also on his soundtrack to prison: “Fuck Tha Police” by N.W.A., “Big Poppa” by The Notorious B.I.G., and “It’s Raining Men” by Geri Halliwell.
“Anytime you get to play a fish out of water, which I think is what’s unique about the movie, is that we’re both fish out of water,” Ferrell told Spotify about his role. “He’s trying to act like a guy who’s been in prison and then I’m trying to adopt what I think is the way to act tough and indoctrinate myself in.”
Meanwhile, Darnell’s playlist featured more pre-game anthems like “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor, “Levels,” by Meek Mill, and a lot of Drake, namely “0 to 100/The Catch Up,” “10 Bands” and “Hold On We’re Going Home.”
In addition to his Spotify mix, Hart reminisced over his very first mixtape. “Mine was definitely a love mix. I was 8 years old. Salt-N-Pepa ‘Push It’ is what led it off. I wanted this girl bad. It went from Salt-N-Pepa “Push It” to “Can You Stand the Rain,” he said. “Yeah, weird memory. I remember the tape kept getting messed up so I had to wind it up a little with my finger. True story. I was quite the romantic.”
Get Hard hits theaters on March 27. In the meantime, stream their playlists below.
