On Wednesday night, the Roots performed the definitive "Harry Potter" rap (yes, there are others) based on a "Tonight Show" fan's suggestion. Tariq, a huge "Harry Potter" fan among the band, spouted lyrics about J.K. Rowling's magical realm, incorporating butter beer, Hogwarts, Voldemort and Diagon Alley.
