Daniel Radcliffe Is A Rap Genius

Thought you'd never live to see the day when Harry Potter spit out the lyrics "holla at ya homeboy?" well, it's happened.
Turns out Daniel Radcliffe is a real-life wizard when it comes to laying down rhymes. On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, the British actor spoke about his love for rappers like Eminem and Plan B. He also called his obsession with memorizing fast, lyrically complicated rap lyrics a "disease." A totally awesome disease that we just had to witness.

Luckily, D Rad was happy to show off his skills by partnering with The Roots on "Alphabet Aerobics" by Blackalicious. While his ability to sound completely American is pretty admirable, Radcliffe's flawless performance of the song's tongue-twisting lyrics is the stuff late-night legends were made of. Who knew?

Actually, this wasn't the first time Radcliffe showcased his musical skills. Here he is singing "The Elements Song" in front of Rihanna and Colin Farrell a few years ago.
And, where, you ask, did he learn how to spit rhymes like this? Dare we say from Rupert "MC Ron Weasley" Grint?
