News Raps with Brian Williams

WBT Editorial

Whether you're a fan of Jimmy Fallon or his recent move to the coveted time slot, it is hard to argue with the latest bit of mashups from the Tonight Show staring Jimmy Fallon.

NBC Nightly News Managing Editor and Anchor Brian Williams has become an internet sensation thanks to Fallon and his editing skills. Taking clips from the numerous newscasts the videos show Williams "rapping" recognizable hip-hop songs.

The most popular video thus far is that of The Sugar Hill Gang's classic "Rapper's Delight." With over nine million views on YouTube Williams is joined by his two friends... NBC Correspondent Lester Holt and a brief but hilarious cameo by Kathie Lee Gifford.

Following in those trending footsteps, the latest late night mashup of "Gin & Juice," which aired last night, is good for a laugh, a few edits for cursing, and a gimpse of Today Show co-host Natalie Morales.
