Stephen Colbert Adds Suburban Rap To Alicia Keys's "Empire State Of Mind" (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Alicia Keys was Stephen's guest last night on the "Colbert Report" and after a short interview, the pair decided to do a duet that would "suburbanize" her song "Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down." Colbert felt it didn't speak enough to the "bridge and tunnel" crowd, so he injected a rap into the middle. A sample? "Shopping mall is close, my community is gated, my shorties are all private-school educated."
