Hamilton star Daveed Diggs has earned his first Tony nomination on top of holding the record for the fastest rapping on Broadway, and he showed off his speedy skills for Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Monday (May 9).
Diggs plays both Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in the Broadway hit, and Fallon exclaims that on the song “Guns and Ships” he raps an insane 19 words in three seconds. Although that seems incredibly swift, Diggs shrugs it off as just “medium fast” in the rap world and proves he can spit lines at an even quicker speed.
Diggs goes on to rap a verse off a track from clipping., his experimental hip-hop group. Watch the performance below.
