The Roots’ Tariq writes best Super Mario Bros theme song ever

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon‘s video game week hasn’t done much for me, but when The Roots’ Tariq laid down lyrics to the Super Mario Bros theme song, I wanted to stand up and clap like an idiot at the end of a movie.

There have been a few rap songs written over the Super Mario beat, but none to my knowledge that would directly apply to the game. This needs to become the theme song for Super Mario & Friends Battle Tennis 42, or whatever the next game in the franchise is.
