Snoop Dogg hit 'rapped' by Brian Williams on 'Tonight Show''

The latest Tonight Show rap mashup features NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams channeling Snoop Dogg, as he "performs" the rapper’s classic hit Who Am I (What's My Name)?

The show's signature rap mashups, in which talented editors splice together words from Williams’ broadcasts to mimic him rapping, have become viral favorites.

Previous mashups have covered everything from Sir Mix-a-Lot’s Baby Got Back to The Sugar Hill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight.

Tonight Show staffer John MacDonald cuts and rearranges Williams’s reportage into old-school hip-hop jams. When MacDonald first showed Fallon his creative work, the host immediately thought: Oh, my God, this is hilarious. Before you could finish your gin and juice, rapping Williams was everywhere. Even the original artists are praising Williams’s turn on the mic.
