If the fan boy/girl in you is looking for another way to celebrate the opening of "Jurassic World" this weekend, let The Roots assist you with #DinoRaps.
The Philadelphia group turned house band for "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" performed a series of short raps about dinosaurs for this week's version of "Tonight Show Hashtags."
Hashtag game! Tweet out a funny rap about dinosaurs and tag with #DinoRaps. Could be on our show!— jimmy fallon (@jimmyfallon) June 10, 2015
The segment takes viewer submitted tweets using a hashtag that Fallon sends out earlier this week. Picked in honor of the "Jurassic Park" revival starring Chris Pratt, the results were strange and hilarious, including parodies of "Gangsta's Paradise" and "Slim Shady."
"Jurassic World" stormed the box office this weekend, garnering the third biggest opening day of all time. The film is doing well critically too, but it's too bad #DinoRaps weren't composed early enough to give the blockbuster a perfect score.
