Chance the Rapper showed up during Stephen Colbert‘s musical cold opening for the Emmys tonight. In the appearance, the Chicago rapper dropped a surprise verse. “I love television, it’s a pleasant distraction,” he rapped. “But just imagine taking action/I like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, in fact I’m addicted/But where’s the cop show where one gets convicted?” He ended his politically-overlayed verse with this: “I get it, them finales, they got you focused/But just record the show and show up at the protest.” Watch it above.

In related news, Donald Glover says that a mixtape with Chance the Rapper will “probably” happen and if not, a “bunch of 14 year olds” will likely “kick his ass.”
