Black Thought Raps Through Every Potential 2020 Presidential Democratic Candidate On 'Fallon': Watch
At times, keeping up with the political frenzy can be tough in America. Names have been thrown out left and right as to who will be nominated to represent the Democratic party and ultimately run against Donald Trump in the 2020 election. On Tuesday's (March 12) episode of Fallon, Black Thought constructed a rap to name each of the candidates in rapid-fire succession.
"We’ve got Warren in the race, and she’s ready to rock/ We've got Julian and Harris pulling up on the block/ Cory Booker and Delaney have the bald game locked/ And Bernie’s back again, he's looking like he got shot/ We've got Williamson and Klobuchar and Gabbard and Yang/ Pete and Hickenlooper have the funniest names," The Roots lead MC breezed through, referring to Julian Castro, Kamala Harris, John Delaney, Bernie Sanders, Marianne Williamson, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang, Pete Buttigieg and John Hickenlooper.
With the band providing light instrumentation, Black Thought couldn't close up shop without mentioning Kanye West's possible run at commander-in-chief in 2020. "And then Beto’s there, and Biden gives a massage/ It’s only 2019, and it’s anyone guess/ Oh, and we’re still waiting to hear from Mr. Kanye West," he concludes.
