Bow Down to Daniel Radcliffe, the Wizard of… Rapping?
Daniel Radcliffe‘s not only a wizard in movies — he’s a rap wizard, too! Last night, the 25-year-old actor joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show to promote his newest film, Horns. So naturally, Jimmy challenged him mid-interview to rap Blackalicious‘ “Alphabet Aerobics” because, well… why not? And, true to form, DanRad accepted.
Daniel did not hesitate to take off his jacket, which obviously resulted in loud roars and claps from audience members, and began to perform his tongue-twisting *magic.* If we’re being completely honest, we may have replayed this video a few times because we couldn’t believe just how quickly he was rapping. Crazy, right?
He shared that his love for it does surprise people and he has had a love for rap since his earlier years. He stated that he first got into Eminem, and from there his love for rap music only grew. He spills that he was the first kid in his class to learn all the words to Eminem’s hit single, “The Real Slim Shady,” and that he’s always had an obsession with “memorizing complicated, lyrically, intricate and fast songs.” It’s a disease that he lives with. (His words, not ours.)
