Brian Williams: ‘The hip, hip a hop ….’

February 21, 2014

Members of the classic rap crew Sugarhill Gang are from Englewood, New Jersey. Newsman Brian Williams grew up in Middletown, on the Jersey Shore. Maybe that’s what motivated this supercut-and-paste of Williams performing Sugarhill’s 1979 hit “Rapper’s Delight.” Nice assist from Lester Holt, too.

Jimmy Fallon brought video editor John McDonald and his amazing found-sound rap videos to the Tonight Show with him. Wise move.
