On last night's episode of The Tonight Show, Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter and The Roots unleashed a Harry Potter-themed rap that intertwined a myriad of references to J.K. Rowling's heptalogy of wizard novels with The Roots' trademark instrumental hip hop sound. The result is nothing short of awesome and the verse is littered with references any well-versed Potter fan will recognize including Diagon Alley, Gryffindor, and quidditch.
The timbre of the band is eerie, yet rightfully funky, and the short excerpt feels like it could easily be augmented into a fully fledged hit. Trotter ends the verse with "See you on the Hogwarts Express, all aboard!" and the crowd goes wild. Check below for another Harry Potter segment titled Mom and Pop Quiz: Harry Potter Edition from last night's episode of Jimmy Fallon.
