Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon perform the sequel to their 'History of Rap': Watch it here

Posted on

Nine months ago, Justin Timberlake and Late Night host Jimmy Fallon brought us the first edition of The History of Rap—a sort of hip-hop history Cliff Notes, told in song—and the people rejoiced.

Now comes the second edition, featuring cuts as varied as N.W.A.’s “Express Yourself,” Salt n’ Pepa’s “Push It,” and DJ Khaled’s “All I Do is Win.” Watch Jimmy and Justin pelvic thrust, bop, and shimmy through their five-minute set after the jump.

I particularly appreciated Justin’s jig during Andre 3000’s “Hey Ya” and Jimmy’s “Dougie” (actually, it looked like Jimmy doing an impersonation of Mick Jagger doing the dougie). What portion did you enjoy most? Let us know.
