WATCH: Jimmy Fallon and the Roots Sing “Wawa Hoagies”
They covered the unforgettable tune by local rapper and Abington High School grad Aaron Out.
We already knew Jimmy Fallon and the Roots emcee Black Thought enjoy a good salmon cheesesteak. Now we know how they feel about Wawa hoagies.
On Monday night’s episode of The Tonight Show, Fallon and the Roots covered “Wawa Hoagies,” a song by local rapper Aaron Out.
We’ll let the performance speak for itself:
We’re not sure which we like better: the Root’s performance, or the incredible (and NSFW) music video by Out. A 2011 Abington High School grad, Out told Philadelphia magazine last year that he wrote the song (his first ever) in about 40 minutes, after he forgot his lunch at work one day, “went to Wawa and smelled the deli food, and I just thought, I should try to make a song about it.”
Out told the Inquirer that it was “surreal” to see the Roots perform his tune on Monday night, especially since Black Thought is his favorite rapper.
