Nutter raps with The Roots

One aspect of Mayor Nutter's second term that is better than the first: His performance of "Rapper's Delight" at his inaugural party. He had The Roots as a backing band this time around, giving the performance a slicker, more professional feel, when Hizzoner rapped:

"See i am wonder mike and i like to say hello to the black, to the white, the red, and the brown, the purple and yellow."
