Leonardo DiCaprio celebrated his big 49th birthday party over the weekend in Beverly Hills in style, surrounded by some of his closest A-list pals.

Based on several reports from the huge bash, it seemed like the party was a major musical affair, involving hip-hop singalongs by several of the guests, and one from the birthday boy himself.

A video first shared by TMZ is now making the rounds on social media of Leonardo himself grabbing the mic to rap the lyrics of the 1994 song "DWYCK" by Gang Starr and Nice & Smooth.

Several on X (formerly known as Twitter) simply deemed it "cringe" while others compared it to Kendall Roy's rap in Succession and Justin Timberlake's "fo shizzle, homie" moment during a recent concert.

However, many others on the social media platform rushed to his defense, with one fan tweeting: "All imma say is Leonardo DiCaprio [is] invited to the BBQ! How do they know more rap lyrics than me!? Last night was a movie forreal. LA went up for, LDC's bday!"

Another also shared: "I don't understand the problem? I would love to turn 49 in a room packed full of people who want to celebrate me and have a good time singing, rapping, dancing, and acting a fool. He looks like he's having a great time! Good for him."

She wore rows of crystal embellishments on the top and added a huge belt with a blue diamond buckle, which looked like an engagement ring that many fans thought was a reference to the 2004 film The Aviator, in which she starred as the Ava Gardner to Leonardo's Howard Hughes.

However, several others pointed out that the blue diamond was in fact identical to the one used in the Heart of the Ocean from Leonardo's epic 1997 classic Titanic.
