'History Of Rap 3' With Justin Timberlake And Jimmy Fallon (VIDEO)
From the moment Justin Timberlake was announced as the guest on Friday's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," we knew what to expect: Another song-and-dance duet chronicling hip hop. And before Fallon even interviews JT, they jump right into "History of Rap Part 3."
Do Timberlake and Fallon deliver yet again? You bet. Throughout the nearly five minute medley, they sample both new school and old school tracks from OutKast, The Fugees, Snoop Dogg, The Beastie Boys, Kanye West, House of Pain, Coolio, Ice Cube, Young MC, Naughty By Nature and several others. (They even manage to throw in some Fresh Prince and Sir Mix-A-Lot, because why not?) They're backed up by The Roots, because not only are they Fallon's house band, but because literally no other band on the planet could pull this off.
Be sure to watch this video quickly, because NBC has taken down both of the first two History of Raps, probably due to royalty rights of the songs sampled.
