The Roots Recap Oscar Contenders with Awesome Rap

Last night, as part of his late night show’s Audience Suggestion Box segment, Jimmy Fallon read a request from one participant who asked to be caught up on this year’s Oscar nominees, preferably in the form of a rap. Luckily, Fallon just happens to have one of the world’s premiere hip hop groups as his in-house band.

With that, Tariq ‘Black Thought’ Trotter launched into a rap that concisely summarized various thoughts on each Best Picture nominee.

Listen closely and you can hear Trotter humorously brand the emotionally devastating Michael Haneke film Amour as a “chick flick.”

Watch the rap below.
