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

10.31.11 6 years ago

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.
