The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon has debuted a very special and magical performance by his in-house band The Roots. Fallon packed up The Tonight Show bags and headed to Universal Studios in Orlando, visiting Harry Potter World for the week, so naturally, everyone got into the spirit, including The Roots.

When a 'Suggestion Box' request asked for a Harry Potter rap, The Roots' lead rapper Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter took the stage with a 90-second rap of pure magic.

So it begins, "I'ma tell you about a half-blood wizard boy, this kid Harry Potter from the House of Gryffindor. Magical young man from the bad lands, on the run from the Prisoner of Azkaban."
