The Roots Rap About Harry Potter on ‘Tonight Show’ [Video]

A good rapper can rap about anything. Black Thought of the Roots proves this on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.’ The talented MC took on an unlikely hip-hop subject Wednesday night (June 18) –  spitting about boy wizard Harry Potter.

On the request of a fan, Black Thought kicked rhymes about J.K. Rowling’s best-selling stories — incorporating butter beer, Hogwarts and Voldemort — while the rest of the Roots supported with a head-nodding beat. “Hit the three broomsticks, give me a butter beer / And I’ma tell you about a half-blood wizard boy / This kid Harry Potter from the House of Gryffindor / Magical young man from the Badlands / On the run from the prisoner of Azkaban,” he spits.

This isn’t Black Thought’s first pop culture rap. Last year, he rhymed about the Nintendo video game ‘Mario.’
