jimmy Video: Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake, and The Roots Do The History Of Rap Pt. 3

Jimmy Fallon is a likable guy, but he wasn’t doing too well when his talk show first started. To most, he was first and foremost a live performer on Saturday Night Live, and his skills as a talk show host were shaky at best. But there are a couple things he’s done right. First of all, The Roots. And then you’ve got this enlightening “History Of Rap” that Fallon does with Justin Timberlake that makes us all like Fallon (and JT) a little more.

This time around, they give a high-energy history lesson/performance and review the likes of Run DMC, Lauryn Hill, The Beastie Boys, Outkast, and the song that’s been stuck in everyone’s head: Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.”
