The Roots’ Tariq shows how it’s done. He busts a rhyme to the Harry Potter theme song on Jimmy Fallon.

Leave it to a fan to make this unusual request on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” How about a rap song based on the theme song for “Harry Potter?” Can do, Jimmy said… and called on The Roots to make it happen.

As it turns out The Roots’ Tariq is a major Harry Potter fan, or so he said.

He was only too happy to take on the task. He rapped to the Harry Potter theme as if it were a rap song to begin with.

Check this out:

“Y’all lend me an ostensible ear
Then another ear.
Hit the three broom sticks,
Give me a Butter Beer.
And, I’ma tell you
about a half-blood wizard boy

Or something like that…

The roots are Jimmy’s house band and they’re more versatile that a Swiss army knife.
