Brian Williams Raps Ludacris' "Rollout," as Specially Requested by Brian Williams—Watch Now!

Ask and you shall receive, Brian Williams.

During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show, the NBC Nightly News anchor told Jimmy Fallon that when the late-night host inevitably does another mashup to create the illusion Williams is rapping, he specifically requested a particular rapper: Ludacris.

The request came after Fallon welcomed Williams last week with a video, which, through the magic of editing, showed Williams rapping Snoop Dogg's 1994 hit, "Gin and Juice."

Well, it looks like DJ Steve Porter has beaten Fallon to the punch and put together his own mashup of Williams clips to make it appear as if he's performing "Rollout" by, yep, Ludacris.

And while Fallon himself didn't make the mashup, Porter was sure to feature him nevertheless by weaving in snippets of Fallon chatting with Williams on The Tonight Show.

Of course, Fallon has been doing this to the 54-year-old newsman for years.

In the past, Williams' reel has been re-cut to show him rapping Sugar Hill Gang's 1979 classic, "Rapper's Delight," N.W.A.'s 1988 smash, "Straight Outta Compton," and Dogg's 1992 debut single, "Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang."

(E!, The Tonight Show and NBC Nightly News are all part of the NBCUniversal family.)
