Taraji P. Henson Yells “Based God” During Charades Game On ‘The Tonight Show’
Taraji P. Henson might just be a Lil B fan. Either that or she just has Based God on the brain. Last night, the Empire actor made an appearance on The Tonight Show and participated in their charades segment. The innocent game turned into a hilariously hip-hop moment. In the game, Henson was teamed up with Black Thought while Ryan Seacrest and Jimmy Fallon were on the other squad. While attempting to guess the phrase "All About That Bass," a confused Henson blurted out "Based God" for her answer a few times.
The moment was so great, Fallon's Twitter account even captured it and made a funny meme with the footage (below).
Henson is currently starring in the new Fox drama Empire which depicts the story of an embattled hip-hop label CEO and his work and family issues. It has received mixed reviews on social media. 50 Cent even went at the series for biting Power's marketing scheme. The show debuted on Jan. 7 and has already been picked up for a second season. Taraji plays the role of Cookie Lyon, the ex-con, ex-wife of the show's lead character who is played by Terrence Howard.
