When Justin Timberlake popped up on Jimmy Fallon's "Late Night" last fall, the duo created a "History of Rap" clip that quickly went viral.
The sight of JT and Fallon flowing to some of the industry's best offerings, from the Sugar Hill Gang to the Beastie Boys, was about as close to seeing Timberlake dip his toe back into music as fans could get.
Surely, such a video can't be topped, Timberlake told Fallon on his show Tuesday: "It's not going to happen; we can't do it again."
But of course, they did. Timberlake and Fallon paid homage to Salt-N-Pepa ("Push It"), Kurtis Blow ("The Breaks"), Lil Wayne ("A Milli") and Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" in "The History of Rap, Part 2." Check out the video (and Timberlake and Fallon hit their dougies) at the link.
Rap music should pay homage to James Brown & George Clinton who made it the popular music it is today. But there was alot of sampling from white bands too, (ask Rick Rubin), so of course white people can pay homage to it! Or trash it, if they don't like it! Just Timber (lol) & Jimmy Fallon are as good as any1, for that job. I do wish they had chosen the badass "Vapors" instead of the cartoonish "Just A Friend" for Biz Markie. Salt-n-Pepa have already gone down in history as 1 of the 1'st female rap super groups! I loved the 1'st installment of this show, hope part 2 is just as good! Doesn't matter if "you love it or hate it", it's important in the music industry!!
White boys rap and they're labeled "cool" , "awesome". Black boys rap and they're labeled "gangsters", "thugs".
Its not hip hop, its electro....
Justin is paying respect to those he loves. Take that & shove it up ur ass!
Worth the afternoon smile!
Hip up is dead.
I am truly offended by white people paying homage 2 hip hop. There r a few exceptions. Jimmy Fallon isnt one. I dont care if u hired The Roots as your house band!
I paid homage to rap today.. and then I flushed the toilet.
So, it offends you for white people to respect, honor and enjoy hip hop? Why is that? Please elaborate
Cows go moo. MOO!
its whack the figures that built rap arent beastie boys salt n pepa the whole video was a waste of money
Awesome! I love it
how come all ur post are about someone sitting on ur face?
I want to wipe their dirty butts.
I think that I would enjoy Fallon more than Justin sitting on my face.
Anything that JT does is great! I'm a big fan!
I love it!
JT= James Taylor? How old are you... 70? JT is the most talented male of our generati
Bow down to the original JT, oh unenlightened one.
HA HA HA ! Most talented??!! HA! If that were true... boy we're in trouble.
Closest thing to Dick in a Box, Mutha Lover was Brown Eyed Girl...
they are the funnies
I like Justin Timberlake a lot. I really do. I think he's talented and very funny. But that being said I think calling anyone JT other than James Taylor is wrong. Only one JT friends.
I initially agreed, cos I thought you said "James Toney".
I agree, they should call him Just Timber. Much more adequate of a nickname.
You are wrong, its crapola. You were close tho.
Rap is short for CRAP!
I bet you love country music
I bet you came up with that all by yourself...
