Jimmy Fallon and Mos Def Pander to Aging Rap Fans

More proof that Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is targeted straight at rap nerds: Mos Def and Jimmy Fallon spontaneously covering Run-DMC's "It's Tricky." Also: points to Mos Def for doing the classic shutting-down-the-white-guy-rapping thing after like nine seconds. Below, Mos and the Roots do "Casa Bey," a song muso-d out to the point where even Black Thought passed on being on the actual record. No problems here though.
