No one would have ever suspected that Daniel Radcliffe was a rap music enthusiast. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, the "Horns" star revealed his love for rap and his obsession for memorizing. Ss he puts it, “complicated lyrically intricate and fast” songs such as Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady,” revealing that he was the first of his class to learn its lyrics, as well as Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics,” which he performed perfectly on set, earning him a standing ovation from the viewers. The video has gone viral with over 22 million views in Youtube.
"Alphabet Aerobics" was one of the tracks from Blackalicious’ "A2G EP" album, as well as its most famous track which is a collaboration with Jurassic 5's "Cut Chemist."
Radcliffe’s fame came from playing the titular character Harry Potter, starring in the series for 10 years until the release of the eighth and final film in 2011. Radcliffe then began to branch out to stage acting in 2007, starring in the "Equus" and "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."
