Watch Daniel Radcliffe Rap Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady”
Sound the alarm my fellow Vinglers, Daniel Radcliffe has bars!
While many know Radcliffe for his role as Harry Potter in the wildly successful film, Daniel has spent the past couple of years showcasing the depth of all of his skills. Over the past year, DR has played held lead roles in everything from horror films to Broadway plays.
Yesterday Radcliffe exposed us to another one of his hidden talents: rap emcee.
Recently Daniel Radcliffe took to a karaoke stage to deliver a surprise performance of Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady.” Radcliffe performed the song with his girlfriend Erin Clarke, he played the role of hype-man during his set.
Those familiar with Radcliffe’s rapping ways aren't surprised by this song selection, as Daniel stated during an interview with Jimmy Fallon that “The Real Slim Shady” is one of his favorite songs ever. The interview is shown in full as the second video in this card.
After watching Daniel Rap“Alphabet Aerobics” and“The Real Slim Shady,” you can see something is there.
Karaoke is a tough field in general. Most performers have had a couple drinks and the words are sung at a fast pace. With that being said, Radcliffe holds his own throughout the song. If you pay close attention, he even captures some of the ad libs, which is rare during Karaoke. Not too shabby my friend.
So far, Daniel is two for two on rap appearances. Maybe it’s time for Radcliffe to lay down an official track.
