Watch the Roots’ Black Thought’s ‘Game of Thrones’ Recap Rap

MC sums up Season Six premiere with hilarious, spoiler-heavy bars

The Roots‘ Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter spit a spoiler-filled summary of the Game of Thrones Season Six premiere on The Tonight Show Wednesday.

Anyone who hasn’t seen last week’s episode should stop the video swiftly after Black Thought’s charmingly awkward back-and-forth with Jimmy Fallon. But those who are caught up can enjoy the dexterous MC’s recap-in-rhyme, which opens with lines about how Jon Snow died at the end of Season Five, even though Melisandre still thinks he’s alive.

Elsewhere, Thought tears through bars about Sansa Stark and Theon Greyjoy’s escape from Ramsay and the Dothraki catching Daenerys Targaryen and sending her back to Vaes Dothrak. He also weaves in this ridiculous couplet: “Sadly Tyrion said he’d have a baby as a snack / The bald guy with no balls made him take it back.”

Black Thought is an avowed Game of Thrones fan and busted out a similar rap on The Tonight Show last year to catch viewers up ahead of the Season Five premiere (coincidentally, he looks to be wearing the same paisley blazer).
