The Roots Perform An Awesome Harry Potter Rap On The Tonight Show

The world's of rap and Harry Potter finally collide thanks to The Roots and a suggestion sent in to The Tonight Show by a viewer who loves hip-hop and Hogwarts, and wondered if Jimmy Fallon could combine the two.

Just like Santa Claus Jimmy gives the viewer their wish, asking Tarik (he's fan, allegedly) from Jimmy's house band The Roots to bust out a tune. And it's hats off to Tarik as he nails the wizardly world in a head-noddingly succinct 90 seconds.

The Harry Potter rap includes some killer lines including: "Magical young man from the badlands / On the run from the Prisoner of Azkaban / Hermione was like his best friend / And his homeboy Ron was his right hand" and loads more that I couldn't possible spoil for you.
