Sometimes TV strikes comic gold using pop music. Last night on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert stood in for Jay-Z as guest Alicia Keys performed the #1 song in the country "Empire State Of Mind." Don't miss Colbert's rap on the state of being upper middle class in the region. Even at the height of comedy the song's chorus comes through proud and clear hailing one of the world's greatest cities. The hoodie is a genius touch. Check out "Empire State Of Mind" below.
