Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake Rap 20-years of Hip Hop History

Justin Timberlake appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s show to plug the movie, Social Network. After reminiscing a bit about Timberlake’s knowledge of Hip Hop, Fallon and the former NSYNC star turned actor, took to the stage with the show’s house band, The Roots, providing the beats as a backdrop to a Fallon/Timberlake rendition of classic Hip Hop songs. From Sugar Hill Gang to Jay-Z, with stops along the way, including the Beastie Boys, Biggie Smalls, Missy Elliot, Q-Tip, Eminem, and Kanye West, Jimmy and Justin secured a spot that will go down as one of the best musical tributes in television history.

We’re sorry, the original SNL video has been pulled from the web by Hulu over copyright restrictions, but you can watch it here on HipHopDx.com.
