Brian Williams: Hip Hop’s Newest Superstar?

Jimmy Fallon gives the world their newest Hip Hop superstar, NBC news anchor Brian Williams.

Here in the UK we usually see our news readers show off their talents via reality TV shows or Comic Relief. In the US, they’re highlighted on late night chat shows.

Late Night host Jimmy Fallon has a running skit where NBC anchor Brian Williams “raps” on some of Hip Hop’s biggest hits. His “rapping” is really just his newscast edited to fit the tune, but if the interest in him rapping continues, maybe he’ll surprise everyone with a live cover.
