If you haven’t been able to watch the Season 6 premiere episode of Game of Thrones then avert your eyes and ears. There be spoilers here.
During last night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, via the suggestion box, an audience member requested an “under one minute” recap of the first episode of 2016 entitled The Red Woman. Fallon had no faith in his own ability to carry out the order so enlisted the talents of The Roots lead MC, Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, to provide this brilliant recap rap (recaprap?).
If you need some help with the lyrics, here they are in all their Westerosi ala Roots glory:
Hey, yo, it opens on Jon Snow who died at the end of Season 5
Lady Melisandre still dreamed he’s alive
Alliser Thorne said, “See, homeboy I did great,” but they both disagree on point
Theon Greyjoy and Sansa Stark runnin’ through the woods
They almost got caught but made it to the ‘hood
Cersei’s lookin’ for her daughter, but chick was taken out by some poisonous lipstick.
The dragon mother, Khaleesi, caught by the Dothraki and sits a little widdle real far from happy.
Arya got in a blind fight, beat up badly
I can feel the whole game start to heat up sadly
Tyrion said he’d have a baby as a snack
The bald guy with no balls made him take it back
The Red Lady took the choker off, brother
A-hickey hickey hickey, she’s old as a mother!
The Game of Thrones rap by Black Thought seems to be becoming something of a tradition as he offered the same spin on Season 5 last year. Trotter is a self-proclaimed GoT fan as well as a solid off-the-cuff rapper so this particular segment was in good hands.
Game of Thrones continues Season 6 every Sunday on HBO for the next several weeks. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights on NBC.
