Of all the things you’d expect Dominic West’s character Detective McNulty from The Wire to get up to, rapping would probably be one of the last things that would spring to mind. West appeared on the latest episode of SBTV’s Warm Up Sessions to promote the upcoming film Guillemot, dropping a hook between three verses from Nottingham’s local talent. His awkward demeanor as he stands there with a big grin on his face makes the entire video worth watching, but really it’s how he delivers the hook that makes it all. “You seen my eyes/yeah they’ve seen a lot.”

Watch his first attempt at hip-hop above. “Let’s get it” indeed.
