With the band’s singer Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter at the helm, the band tackled tweets sent by Tonight Show fans that were tagged with #SuperBowlRaps. “Who’s gonna win? A Bronco or a Panther?/Don’t ask me, I don’t know the anther,” a fan wrote in the first tweet rapped by Trotter.
Later, the band imitated Drake’s “Hotline Bling” with the lines “I know when that doorbell rings, it’ll be the chicken wings/I know when that doorbell rings, it’ll be chicken wings.” It was followed up with a remix of R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” about Peyton Manning’s forehead.
Songs by Vine-famous rapper Silento and Eminem were also imitated before the final #SuperBowlRap took a dig at the New England Patriots quarterback who lost to Manning in the conference finals. “My Super Bowl party will be the bomb, baby/Watching from the couch, just like Tom Brady.”
