Jimmy Fallon’s video editors are supremely talented, as evidenced by their ability to edit tiny clips of NBC news anchor Brian Williams speaking individual words and splicing them together to make it sound like he’s rapping along to hip-hop classics.

This time, Fallon’s team put together a killer video of Williams seemingly rapping along to Snoop Dogg’s breakout hit “Who Am I (What’s My Name).” While Williams’ flow is obviously not as smooth as Snoop’s iconic laid-back California drawl, his voice does lend itself to hip-hop covers better than just about any other TV news anchor we’ve seen… which is saying nothing since he’s the only one we’ve seen given this treatment.

In the past Fallon’s crew has also spliced together Williams raps of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back,” Snoop’s “Gin and Juice,” among other classics.

Check out the full video below.
