The Roots play 'Rappers Delight' with the Philadelphia Mayor for Fourth of July

Posted on

The Roots celebrated Fourth of July in their hometown Philadelphia, and while performing at the Philly Fourth of July Jam, they brought out a special guest: Mayor Michael Nutter.

Nutter, who used to be a DJ, joined the band to sing Sugarhill gang’s classic “Rapper’s Delight.”

This was Nutter’s last Fourth of July as mayor, and he ended the show with a literal mic drop. Well done.
