Brian Williams 'raps' 'Who Am I (What's My Name?)' on 'Tonight Show'

Brian Williams 'raps' again on 'The Tonight Show.' This time it's Snoop Dogg's 'Who Am I (What's My Name?)'

Monday night, Jimmy Fallon aired yet another installment in "The Tonight Show's" ongoing project to have "NBC Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams "rap" every major hip hop and rap song in modern history.

The subject this time was Snoop Dogg's "Who Am I (What's My Name?)" off his 1993 album "Doggystyle."

Anyone who's seen "The Tonight Show's" previous Williams raps, including "Rapper's Delight," "Gin and Juice," "Baby Got Back" and "Straight Outta Compton," will know the drill. Clips from hundreds of hours of "Nightly News" broadcasts are painstakingly stitched together to form a sonic and visual quilt. A rapping quilt!

During a previous in-person visit by the news anchor to the show, Fallon revealed that the edited segments are the work of "Tonight Show" associate producer John MacDonald.

Williams, at the time, didn't believe him.

"Nice fake name," he shot back.

Lucky for Fallon, Williams has an excellent sense of humor. He even hosted an episode of "Saturday Night Live" back in 2007.
