Watch Brian Williams Rap Sir Mix-a-Lot’s ‘Baby Got Back’ on ‘The Tonight Show’ [VIDEO]
First it was N.W.A.’s classic ‘Straight Outta Compton.’ Then he flipped the lyrics to Young MC’s ‘Bust A Move.’ Right after that, you saw him mouth the words to ‘Rapper’s Delight,’ and then Snoop Dogg’s ‘Gin and Juice.’
