Brian Williams is at it again!

On Monday's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the NBC Nightly News anchor put his rapping skills on display to tune of Snoop Dogg's classic "Who Am I (What's My Name)?" '

As always, some clever editing helped Allison Williams' father to expertly rattle off every one of those rhymes. Still, Williams' rapping is no joke—even Snoop himself seems to approve!

The rapper tweeted a link to the veteran journalist's performance, writing, "Brian Williams did that! We need you on the GGN!"

The GGN, of course, is Snoop's weekly YouTube series. No word yet on whether Williams will take him up on that guest spot offer, but the NBC Nightly News host has, indeed, joined Fallon before for a live musical performance!

This past December, Williams celebrated 10 years on the air with NBC Nightly News by appearing (for real!) on the Tonight Show. There, with the help of the late-night host and The Roots, he slow jammed the news and helped explain President Barack Obama's immigration reform to the tune of Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back!"

B.Dubs is just a cool dude! He was even super chill about daughter Allison's explicit sex scene in Girls earlier this year, telling Vulture, "She's always been an actress...For us, watching her is the family occupation and everybody has to remember it's acting, no animals were harmed during the filming, and ideally nobody gets hurt."
