Mark Wahlberg got his start as one of the OG white boy rappers in the group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, but left that all behind to establish himself as a serious actor.
Carson Daly remembers the time Mark Wahlberg came onto TRL when Emimen was a guest to promote one of his movies. “Em was promoting ‘8 Mile’ and Mark was coming off a career in hip-hop and transitioning into acting, so we thought it would be perfect,” Carson said, recalling one of the iciest moments of TRL. “Em was making a bunch of jokes about ‘We’re all one big funky bunch’, but Mark was transitioning into acting and didn’t appreciate the references.”
Well, Mark Wahlberg’s daughter clearly hasn’t realized her dad’s rapping days are in the past. She accompanied him to an interview on The Dan Patrick Show and spontaneously told her dad she wanted him to rap.
Mark Wahlberg went ahead, using his rhymes to tell his daughter who’s boss and leaving her absolutely mortified.
