Brian Williams Reflects on His Career as a Rap Superstar

'NBC Nightly News' Anchor Sits Down with Jimmy Fallon for a Hilarious Interview

By Published on .

On Tuesday we brought you a truly awesome video of "NBC Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams "rapping" the Snoop Dogg classic "Gin and Juice" through the miracle of editing, courtesy of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," which aired it the night before. How does the distinguished journalist feel about his accidental side career as a rapper and viral-video superstar? Today, for our Clip of the Week, we're bringing you the answer via Fallon's two-part interview with Williams, which also aired on Monday night's show. It's long-ish -- eight minutes total -- but so worth watching in full if you didn't catch it the first time. Because it's a complete delight. Once again, Williams proves that he's something of a comedy genius with impeccable timing.
