Lin-Manuel Miranda (star of Broadway’s “Hamilton”) and Tariq from The Roots are given three random words they’ve never seen before and have to work them into a freestyle rap.
who else knows him as alvie alvarez?
Look up Black Thought’s freestyling here on yt if “you want more”
Videos like these makes me SWEAT !
What record label u think callin him first ?
OMFGOMFGOMFG THAT WAS SO DOPE
Jimmy Fallon with that black guy reaction
that was really fun to watch
this has gotta be the best one.. they gotta do this game more often!!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do more skits with Tariq freestyling
I love the white people in the comments saying he’s good ?. He’s average at that.
Black Thought is the man
Black Though is without a doubt the MOST UNDERRATED MC of all time.
OVERHYPE JIMMY FUCKING FALLON
i unliked the video just so i could like it again
eh. I want to hear a bone thugs like freestyle.
Just watch House M.D. He’s Alvie in the rehab episodes
is it sad that I only recognize him from the electric company…?
please say no
Jesus he’s talented
Daniel Radcliffe would be a candidate for this ;)
Wasn’t he on house? XD lol
So a black guy lost a rap bout to a bloke with Miranda in his name.
My letter to Mr. Fallon: Talk, less Smile more
Lin-Manuel is so freaking talented
Holyshit! This man’s a genius! Legit impressive. :O
he’s actually pretty good
Wow, just wow! *slow claps with teary eyes*
it’s either really good or really staged, either way, I like it
My appreciation for Lin-Manuel has literally extended beyond what I thought it could. love this man
Calm down jimmy
And a casual shout out to the LGTBQ(+) community? Damn Lin could you stop being such a great guy (I’m kidding please don’t)?
LIN MANUEL MIRANDA IS LIFE
“Go see Hamilton on Broadway!” yeah but it’s completely sold out for like six months it’s not that easy
i have a feeling this could be a great show by itslef. Freestyle rap for mainstream audience.
wtf is wrong with fallon today?
OMG they need to do this more often! I would love to see other celebrities like actors, etc who don’t freestyle and bet it would be hilarious to see what they come up with. That guy was amazing!
Lin is just so damn excited to be on this show and it is the cutest thing ever. I love this man.
THIS IS LIT
wow that was amazing!
I CAN’T. THIS IS SO GOOD!
It’s the BANGEST part of Jimmy’s show. I LOVE IT!
All these bits on this show are fake, pre written + setup by the writers, and rehearsed. The fake laughing and fake clapping says it all. This man might have lyrics , but this is fake.
I wish they would put English subtitles, as a non-native speaker, it’s hard to catch up everything =)
Search for Lin-Manuel Miranda “96,000”. ;)
oh my god he’s so cute!
His face looks sooo familiar was he ever in the tv show House MD?
Omg i should like this shit
This is everything!
This is why I love Rap
wow that was awesome
Lin-Manuel is AMAZING
That was Ill
Jimmy was so into it! Amazing!
This was actually incredible. I wish I was in the States so I could go and see Hamilton. He seems incredibly creative and deserves all the success he receives.
“Go see Hamilton on Broadway!” I’M TRYING… He said it like it’s easily accessible
Our dream is to see Hamilton but it’s so expensive we can’t afford it. We’ve been number one fans since In the Heights. I hope to surprise my husband with tickets one day, he is obsessed with Lin…even dressed as Usnavi for the last showing and met his family at a restaurant ? Epic
Mic drop–Lin Manuel Miranda ?
Go Liiiinnn! ??
This is TAAALENT!
the first was spot on
Miranda is good, but… You can’t fucking touch Black Thought! That dude’s lyrical talent in incredible!
Isn’t he House’s friend from the mental hospital?
need this guy on weekly
Man those raps were nasty
Honestly, I don’t know why they feel the need to put “(from “Hampton”)” right next to his name. They just assume nobody knows him.
SHOUT OUT to ALL my BORICUAS out there!!
I want Lin-Manuel Miranda to adopt me
Am I the only person who watched this many times? ??
Lets all act like Tariq didn’t just out class him haha sorry
He was the rapper with the beatboxing guy on The Electric Company a whileeee ago, ahh memories
does jimmy’s finger function fully now or is it just there? Cuz it doesn’t really seem like he can move it :(
That wasn’t Tariq, that was black thought. And I wanted to see his second freestyle.
I don’t understand how this doesn’t have millions of views: Lin-Manual Miranda is the most talented man out there and how he can top his amazing Broadway hit, “In the Heights,” one of my favorites, with his newest classic, “Hamilton,” goes to show how brilliant he really is.
Lin Manuel Miranda won a MacArthur Genius Grant. the man can literally do anything, including freestyle his ass off. rehearsed? NEVER.
Tariq needs his own show where he battles against other rappers. Loved this segment
Genuinely love the nerdcore fans of LMM as soon as he said the line I knew there would be war within the comments section. Regardless, the force is strong in LMM
ı saw many things, many beautiful performances, games in jimmy fallon’s tonight show. but this is the best! ıve ever seen in a tv show….
Proof it’s fake at 4:20. They added a vocal effect to his voice to make him sound like Darth Vader. Listen: “I’m behind the mask, saying Luke I am your father.” If it was real they wouldn’t have known if and where that effect was needed.
I don’t think it was rehearsed, you can hear slight hesitation when Tariq does it.
I loooved this! This needs to get done more! Especially the Kind of battle between the roots rapper and the other.
“If you’ve seen Hamilton or listened to it 5 times on spotify…”
Anyone who thinks he’d need to rehearse this should watch the Writing the Closing Number Tonys Video and the Cypher videos.
Puerto Rican Talent!!
THIS WAS SIIIIIICK!
Good to know, that he improved on his freestyle so much, he doesn’t need House to help him anymore. This was gooood!
DOPE AS SHIT! Jimmy, you used to do this type of game on your old late night show and truth is your audience wants more of these hip hop games.
Why am I hearing a second audio at 4:21?
Dafuq is life? Just ….Wow!
I wanna see Lin -Manuel Miranda VS Supa Hot Fire …
lol, better than freestyles written by not drake… +tessa netting
