The Roots's One-Minute 'Game of Thrones' Recap Is the Only Recap You Need

Jay Z and Kanye West better watch the throne—because The Roots just dropped a new jam that's hotter than Essos.

Last night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the band's resident wordsmith Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter masterfully recapped Game of Thrones seasons 1-4 in a 1-minute rap so infectious we're already memorizing the lyrics.
