NBC newsman Brian Williams “performed” another rap for “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” The call this time is Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice,” and you can watch above; it’s just as delightful as his “Rapper’s Delight” from February.
Fallon reveals that the creator of these masterpieces is John McDonald from the “Tonight Show” staff. Props to him because they are amazing.
However, the more hilarious part of Monday’s (April 21) show is Williams’ interview. The clips are below and they’re also worth a watch. Highlights include:
Williams: “I just don’t know how to thank you, may take me a couple months to repay you for all you’ve done. … Here’s the thing, every night I’m downstairs, I’m doing the broadcast that pays for your hobby and all this, and people think I have somehow colluded in the making of these videos. … A frame in ‘Rapper’s Delight’ is me in the war in Baghdad. Jimmy, there was a firefight going on! … It’s all anyone mentions to me anymore.”
Williams on Lester Holt’s cameo in “Rapper’s Delight”: “I had reservations about Lester — it’s because of his flow. Now that’s out there and it’s going to ricochet through our community.”
Fallon’s suggestions for Williams’ rap nickname: “Honey Bri-Bri, Bri Will.I.Ams, Bri Wi the Science Guy, Bri-Curious, Brizzle and B-Dub.”
For the record, we like Bri Wi the Science Guy.
