Stephen Colbert Raps, Is in Empire State of Mind

by at . Comments

Move over, Jay-Z.

The hip hop mogul, whose "Empire State of Mind" is one the most popular songs of 2009, might need to find a new line of work.

After all, Alicia Keys has evidently found a new duet partner on the hit single.

On last night's installment of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert grabbed a mic (and a hoodie) and rapped his own verse of the song, offering a shout-out to NYC's suburbs that included lines such as "My shorties are all private school educated" and:

I love New York/King of all the cities/Lived up by the Guggenheim/Til i got some kiddies...

It's great stuff. Check it out below.
