Daniel Radcliffe proves he is an impressive rapper

Daniel Radcliffe Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe‘s career couldn’t be going any better as the 25-year-old just took the second spot on Britain’s Heat Magazine’s “30 Richest U.K. Stars Under 30 2014″ list with a total of $102.48 million. However, if he ever decides acting isn’t what he wants to do anymore, he has proven he has what it takes to have a successful rap career. On Tuesday, Daniel appeared on The Tonight Show to discuss his new film, Horns, with Jimmy Fallon. The two found themselves a little off topic and landed on Daniel’s love of Hip Hop. “I think I was the first kid in my class to learn all the words to [Eminem’s] Real Slim Shady,” Daniel told Jimmy. “I’ve always had kind of an obsession with memorizing complicated, lyrically intricate and fast songs, I guess.”

After Jimmy called Blackalicious’ tongue-twisting “Alphabet Aerobics” one of the “trickiest, fastest songs” he knows, Daniel accepted the challenge and performed the song, backed by The Roots. Daniel delivered an absolutely incredible performance, as Jimmy got into it in the background. Upon finishing, Daniel was met with a well-deserved standing ovation from the audience.

    Very impressive. I don’t like rap, but it’s amazing he can do that.

    So I guess it’s easier to rap by dropping your natural accent and using a faked american accent?
