Watch Daniel Radcliffe Rap Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics” In Its Entirety

Chris Pratt impressed everyone recently with his ability to memorize rap lyrics. But we learned Tuesday on the Tonight Show that there’s another famous young actor who’s even better at it: Daniel Radcliffe. After explaining his “obsession with memorizing lyrically intricate and fast songs,” Radcliffe rose to Jimmy Fallon’s challenge to rap Blackalicious’ tongue-twisting 1999 classic “Alphabet Aerobics.”

And while Radcliffe’s flow obviously isn’t quite up to par with Gift of Gab’s, he delivers the lyrics verbatim—even keeping up with the song’s rapid-fire pace as it hits the W’s. Justin Timberlake might want to pay Fallon a visit sometime soon before Radcliffe steals his spot in their beloved History of Rap series.
