You've Gotta Watch Mike Tyson Sing Drake's 'Hotline Bling'

Another epic moment with Jimmy Fallon.

Published October 27, 2015

It doesn't matter that Mike Tyson is years removed from boxing — he continues to deliver shock value and be highly entertaining at the same time.

That was evident Monday, when "Iron Mike" did everything from lending his support to Donald Trump's presidential run on HuffPost Live to breaking out his own rendition of Drake's "Hotline Bling" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Earlier in the day on HuffPost Live, Tyson felt comfortable enough to give the Oval Office-nod to Trump. Perhaps all those times the controversial Republican candidate showed up to see Tyson fight during the 1980s made a strong impression on the former champ.

"We tried Obama, right? Time for a change so we got change," Tyson said in Trump's favor. "So now let's try something new. Let's run America like a business, where no colors matter. Whoever can do the job, gets the job. He's the man right now."

Later in the day, when presented by Fallon with a meme going around the Internet that poked fun at Tyson's enunciation of the hook to Drizzy's banger, Mike rose right out of his seat and proceeded to deliver his own version of "Hotline Bling" to the crowd's roar.

Tyson's days in the ring may be over, but he's still worth the price of admission when it comes to entertainment.
