Stephen Colbert Gives Alicia Keys' 'Empire' A Suburban Remix

Stephen Colbert has brought an "Empire State of Mind" to the suburbs. On Tuesday night's "Colbert Report," the talk show host crashed Alicia Keys' performance of her chart-topping ode to New York and gave the absent Jay-Z a run for his money. Wearing a dark hoodie under his suit, Colbert grabbed the mic and dropped a hilarious rhyme about living large in … Connecticut.

"Shopping mall is close, my community is gated/ My shorties are all private school educated/ Home theater system, 60 inch plasma/ Clean suburban air, much better for my asthma."

Watch the video below and tell us what you think about Colbert's flow.
