This week, a long-lost Dr. Seuss book, What Pet Should I Get?, was finally published 50 years after it was originally written. To celebrate, Jimmy Kimmel did the only logical thing on his show Wednesday night: He recruited Tyler, The Creator to rap the whole book.

Dressed in full Cat in the Hat attire, the rapper tried to give the children’s book some “flow,” before telling Kimmel the segment was “wack.” Bonus! He performed in front of a Seuss-inspired backdrop.
