Jimmy pens thank you notes to the Winter Olympics before turning the mic over to The Roots’ Tarik Trotter for a PyeongChang 2018 wrap-up. Full lyrics below:
Yo the 2018, the Olympian
Games are in PyeongChang, that’s South Korean
The stadium apparently is the house to be in
And girls say that Tongan dude’s Herculean
Gerard got the gold early, I heard him cussin’
Only 17, still doper than the Russians
Nathan Chen came to win,
Shib Sibs said to let the games begin
Then Mirai Nagasu said, “I gotchu
I’ll do the impossible.” We said, “I’ll watchu
Rock the triple axel and then bring it back to the U.S.
Girl you just the queen of the castle.”
Who the champions? You know we them.
There’s no Kourtney, but there’s Chloe Kim
Who went on the attack, what’s better than that?
She won a gold medal, go and get her a snack.
I must admit the games have been a whirlwind,
Skating, skiing, swirling, but what’s curling?
When you find out, hit me back.
Aight, that’s the end of this Olympics rap.
