#SuperBowlRaps — Jimmy Fallon Turns Viewers’ Lyrics Into Super Bowl Raps

#SuperBowlRaps was a hot topic in the lead-up to Sunday’s Super Bowl and has remained a Twitter favorite since then, just like many of the other hashtags that Jimmy Fallon has managed to send soaring over the years.

In this case, Fallon encouraged viewers to write their own Super Bowl-themed rap lyrics to be potentially read on the show. Even better, the chosen rap lyrics were performed by Jimmy Fallon’s in-house band, The Roots, with the lyrics laid down by the band’s singer Tariq.

As Rolling Stone reported, the first #SuperBowlRaps submission had Tariq performing lyrics which took poetic license to a new extreme.

“Who’s gonna win? A Bronco or a Panther?/Don’t ask me, I don’t know the anther.”

It seems that rhyming “Panthers” with “anthers” was a common ploy for would-be rap lyricists.

Imitating hotline billing by Drake was a crowd favorite, with arguably the best Drake-inspired lyrics involving chicken wings.

“I know when that doorbell rings, it’ll be the chicken wings / I know when that doorbell rings, it’ll be the chicken wings.”
