Goddamn, Chidi

You’ve seen William Jackson Harper shirtless. You’ve seen him play Chidi for four seasons on The Good Place, including last night’s terrifically received series finale. You’ve maybe even seen him in season two of Jack Ryan (but it’s bad so don’t bother if you haven’t).

But have you seen him rap? Because he can do that, too, and he can do it well. And about Kierkegaard, or Poppa Existential. Using the word teleological. It’s breathtaking.

And if he sounded a little Lin-Manuel in his delivery, it’s probably because he started out delivering rap verses written and delivered by Lin-Manuel Miranda. On Electric Company. As an apple, opposite Lin-Manuel’s hot dog. Five years before Hamilton.

This is also very impressive.
