"I'll do Luda. I'll do 'Rollout'. 'Who's your weed man? Why do you smoke so good?'"

NEW YORK, May 1 (UPI) -- NBC Anchor Brian Williams recently requested Jimmy Fallon make "Rollout" by Ludacris one of his famous mashups, so DJ Steve Porter did one before The Tonight Show could.

Williams recently appeared on Fallon's show to discuss the comedian's regular mashups of clips from his broadcast to make it sound like the anchor is rapping, and had some constructive criticisms.

"Every night I'm downstairs doing the broadcast that pays for your hobby and all this," Williams told Fallon. "It's all anyone mentions to me anymore."

Since Fallon has done this to Williams seven times, Williams decided he earned some pride of authorship and put in a request that Fallon do a "Rollout" mashup. DJ Steve Porter heard this and granted his request before Fallon could.

For the record, Williams would like people to know he has never uttered the word "hippity" during his broadcasts.
