Shortly after the U.S. Presidential Election on Nov. 9, Macklemore released “Wednesday Morning,” a song that touches on the various social issues plaguing the country. Along with racial inequality, women’s and the LGBTQ rights, the Grammy Award-winning rapper speaks to his newborn daughter Sloane on the song. “Imagine trying to keep your head while your daughter sleeps in bed, and when she wakes up, will the world be the same? Will my girl be afraid in the home of the brave?,” he raps.

On Friday (Dec. 9), Macklemore appeared on The Ellen Show. Visiting his No. 1 supporter, the Seattle-native performed his somber record, as black-and-white images of children, the American flag and more are projected in the background. Get the song on iTunes and watch below.

Riz Ahmed has been rapping as long as he’s been acting. This year he enjoyed success in HBO’s The Night Of, but he also dropped a new album as one-half of Swet Shop Boys alongside former Das Racist MC Heems. So when he appeared on The Tonight Show last night, it was only right that Jimmy Fallon put his talents to use.

During “The Wheel” segment, Fallon challenged Ahmed to spit a freestyle incorporating a number of Star Wars characters (Ahmed appears in the upcoming Rogue One film), and he didn’t disappoint. Shia LaBeouf isn’t the only Hollywood star with bars.
