Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Break Down The History Of Rap (Again)

By 10.31.11

Last year Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, and The Roots performed a rap history medley on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Then, in July, Timberlake came back for a part two. There were still plenty of rap songs left to shoehorn into a medley, however, so Timberlake came back on Friday night to perform part three with a very out-of-breath Jimmy Fallon. Any day Jimmy doesn’t have to use his AK Albuterol inhaler is a good day.

The video and a full track listing are below:


Run-DMC – “King of Rock”
LL Cool J – “Mama Said Knock You Out”
DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince – “Parents Just Don’t Understand”
De La Soul – “Me, Myself, and I”
JJ Fad – “Supersonic”
Sir Mix-a-Lot -“Baby Got Back”
Young MC -“Bust a Move”
House of Pain – “Jump Around”
Ice Cube – “Today Was a Good Day”
Coolio – “Gangsta’s Paradise”
Fugees – “Killing Me Softly”
Beastie Boys – “Sabotage”
Jay-Z – “I Just Wanna Love You (Give It To Me)”
Outkast – “Ms. Jackson”
Snoop Dog – “Drop It Like It’s Hot”
Kanye West – “Stronger”
Nicki Minaj – “Super Bass”
Naughty By Nature – “Hip Hop Hooray”
