Watch the Roots’ Epic Harry Potter Freestyle Rap

Tonight Show house band and all-around cool group of musicians, The Roots, are apparently big fans of Harry Potter. The group’s lead MC Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter is also one hell of a freestyle rapper. I think you know where this is going (yes, it’s absolutely magical).

How anyone manages to rhyme anything with words like Gryffindor, Voldemort, and Hermione, let alone tie it all together into an awesome (and coherent) rap is beyond me. The Roots’ geek cred just maxed out.
