Watch: Brian Williams’ absolutely perfect “cover” of “Gin and Juice”

on April 22, 2014, 12:31am

As a late night talk show host, Jimmy Fallon has demonstrated an uncanny ability to create some incredible music moments. Take his History of Rap bit with Justin Timberlake, or his cover of “Whip My Hair” with Bruce Springsteen. Now with the magic of some very carefully timed smash cuts, Fallon has given us a cover to top them all: NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams rapping “Gin and Juice”.

With impeccable flow and timing, the Peabody-award winning newsman “delivers” the Snoop Dogg classic with the sort of chill nonchalance the track demands. He even gets some backing support from his field reporters (who appear to be permanently stationed in Israel) during the chorus. That “Rapper’s Delight” smash cover was funny; this one is so smooth it’s genius. Watch below while we await word on William’s appearance on XXL‘s Freshman List.
