When Ellen DeGeneres saw a video of KC’s Mac Lethal rapping at the speed of light, she knew she had to have him on her show. And it’s happening on Monday.

“It's official. I will be interviewed and performing on @TheEllenShow on Monday the 24th. Other guests include: Jason Bateman Emma Watson!” he tweeted on Wednesday.

Last week, Ellen showed a clip from “Amazing Twister Rap,” that Lethal – aka David Sheldon – had just posted to YouTube. The video has more than 2.5 million views so far, yet another viral hit for him.

“I’ve never seen a rapper rap so fast,” Ellen said.

Then she tried to rap as fast as him: “That was amazing, I wanna meet you. Have your people call me ... I really wanna meet you.”

Apparently calls were made.

“It doesn't get a whole lot bigger than what I'm flying to LA to do this week,” the rapper posted to his Facebook page on Monday. “(Bleeping) nervous and excited.”

We’re bleeping nervous and excited for him.

We hope that meeting Emma Watson doesn’t get his tongue all twisted up.
