Terry Crews’ ‘Lip Sync Battle’ Channels Run D.M.C for ‘Sucker MC’s’ (Video)

The “Expendables” star will go head to head with Mike Tyson on Thursday

Mike Tyson better watch out, because Terry Crews has some sweet lip-syncing skills.

Spike released a preview of Crews’ performance of Run D.M.C’s “Sucker MC’s” ahead of Thursday’s episode of “Lip Sync Battle,” in which the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star goes up against boxing’s former heavyweight champion of the world.

Though Tyson proved himself a capable lip syncer in the preview of his performance of Salt-N-Pepa’s 1986 hit “Push It,” Crews appears to work the crowd into a frenzy with his mic skills, stage presence and  white Adidas — a Run D.M.C. signature style mark.

“Lip Sync Battle” started off as a segment on “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” and quickly turned into an internet sensation. The gag really took off when a clip went viral of Emma Stone absolutely schooling the Fallon with rapid Blues Traveler lyrics and a bombastic DJ Khaled/Ludacris rap.

Tyson vs. Crews debuts April 23 at 10 p.m.
