Brian Williams 'covers' 'Gin and Juice' in 'Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon' mash-up
NBC Nightly News anchorman Brian Williams is renowned for his gravitas and journalistic acumen — but did you know he had rapping skills as well?
Footage of Williams has been used expertly by late night host Jimmy Fallon for a serious of increasingly ambitious mash-ups videos which take his straight news reports and turn them into classic hip-hop songs.
Williams, always a good sport, joked about his hip-hop prowess while appearing on The Tonight Show this Monday. He claimed that actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. once told him he was “a huge figure in the rap and hip-hop community.”
In this installment, Williams (and some surprise guests) “raps” Snoop Dogg’s hit song “Gin and Juice.”
