In celebration of Halloween Jimmy Fallon asked fans of his show to send in a Halloween rap with the hashtag #HalloweenRap. Within hours that hashtag became a worldwide trending term on Twitter.
Selected tweets were rapped by The Roots rapper Tariq.
Here are a few of the official selections chosen by Jimmy Fallon:
Dump out my bag and I start countin’ the pieces E.T. would proud of how I’m poundin’ these Reeses. #HalloweenRap

Even Breaking Bad got a Halloween mention:
My whities are tight, glasses fix my sight, I’m the one who knocks dressed as slutty Walter White #halloweenrap — Joe Otto (@itsjoeotto) October 23, 2013
And our favorite #HalloweenRap selection goes to this Halloween themed version of Mackelmore’s “Thrift Shop” single:
I’m gonna pop some Pez. Only got 20 Skittles in my pocket. I-I-I’m huntin, looking for a King-size, Reese’s some chocolate.#halloweenrap
