Video: Jimmy Fallon x Justin Timberlake – The History of Rap 2

I absolutely get thrilled when these two, along with The Roots, to give us a brief history of rap. I mean, when you can start off with such classics as Kurtis Blow’s “Breaks”, then somehow strategically place Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How to Dougie”, then get a bunch of white people in the crowd to rock to Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend”, you have a great night. Watch part two after the jump, and I’ve provided the tracklisting for your own edification (or at least for hers).
