Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Perform the History of Rap

This article is taken from here.


Justin Timberlake just chalked up another awesome TV appearance when he pulled off a history of hip-hop medley with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night. The duo rocked every rap hit from The Sugar Hill Gang to Jay-Z, starting off in the 80s and working their way up to current tracks.

Timberlake pretty much rocks it every time he appears on TV -- consider D*ck in a Box and J*** in My Pants -- and this performance on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" is no exception. The only surprising bit is that Fallon pulls off the raps pretty well, and that both of them do spot-on impressions of their favorite rappers. It also doesn't hurt that Fallon's backing band is legendary hip-hop outfit The Roots. The whole thing feels like a classy rap edition of Evolution of Dance.

My personal favorite moment: Fallon and Timberlake doing the Soulja Boy dance.


I wish I stayed up late enough more often to see Jimmy Fallon.
