Riz Ahmed on 'Fallon'

Watch one half of Sweat Shop Boys and The Night Of / Star Wars: Rogue One actor Riz Ahmed perform a cut from his 2010 solo album, Microscope, "Sour Times" when he used the moniker Riz MC on The Tonight Show. He told host Jimmy Fallon he performed the cut in a response to the horrific news from Charlottesville, Va., saying: "“I wrote this piece 10 years ago and every year I keep hoping it will become irrelevant, but it seems to be coming more and more relevant, sadly. It’s my attempt to try and get behind the headlines and work out where all this extremism is coming from.”
