Jimmy Fallon presented another remix of Williams’ “NBC Nightly News” broadcasts last night on the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”. Fallon presented a remix parody of rapper Snoop Dogg’s 1996 Grammy-nominated hit, “Gin and Juice” featuring Brian Williams.
In February, Williams’ popularity increased when he did his own rap version to Sugar Hill Gang’s 1979 classic “Rapper’s Delight” on The Tonight Show. It has over 8.9 million hits on YouTube. Williams said “It’s all anyone mentions to me anymore.” Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. spotted Williams at a New York Rangers game recently and told the anchor he had become “a huge figure in the rap and hip-hop community.”
Natalie Morales, Richard Engel and Lester Holt also featured on the “Gin and Juice” parody. Fallon mentioned his numerous rap nicknames for Williams, including BriWi, B-Willy, B-Dubs, and Honey Bri-Bri. Williams jokingly replied “when I was hanging with Pac (Tupac Shakur) and Biggie in the old days.”
When Fallon introduced Williams he said “he hosts the fourth hour of the TODAY Show.” Williams stated “Every night, I’m downstairs doing the broadcast that pays for your hobby.”
