Colbert Empire State of Mind (Part II) with Alicia Keys

We knew Stephen Colbert could sing. We knew he could dance. We even knew he could convince hoards of viewers to rewrite the history of the elephant. But did we know he could rap? Oh right, we did. Well, he still can. In fact, he should probably just always rap everything he says from now on, because he’s awesome at it.

Stephen’s interview with Alicia can be found below.

Watch this full episode here. The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.

UPDATE: The lyrics to Stephen’s rap are pasted below the interview clip.

Yeah, I love New York, it’s the king of all the cities

I lived up by the guggenheim till I got myself some kiddies

Moved to Connecticut, bye George Pataki

Volvo to the dry-cleaner pickin’ up my khakis

Now my shopping mall is closer, my community is gated

My shorties are all private school educated

Home theater system, 60-inch plasma

Clean suburban air much better for my asthma

Still hit the city, Times Square I keep it real

Hard Rock Cafe for their appetizer deal

M&Ms Store, Disney Store, I’m in heaven

I own this town from 41st to 47

Got tickets to The Lion King, that show is fantastic

Leave half an hour early so I can beat the traffic

I can get home really fast, driver rocks an EZ-Pass

To the land of cheaper gas and the upper middle class
