Check out Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, and the Roots Do The History of Rap – Part 3

JT and JF (can I call them that? answer: yes) previously teamed with Jimmy Fallon’s recent bandmates, the Roots, to do two highly successful bits on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show. Justin Timberlake and Fallon did a segment called the History of Rap, in which they covered and even mimicked rap verses and choruses from years passed. The impressive things are how they change up their delivery for the various artists, as well as how good Fallon can throw down! Part 1 aired last year, and Part 2 was this summer (check out the videos on PHM). And back by popular demand, JT and JF did part 3 last night. Check it out below (and then practice at home). Can you say Sir Mix-a-lot?! Also included are House of Pain, Coolio, the Fugees, Beastie Boys – and more (trust me).
