Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon and the history of rap [poll]
While Justin Timberlake was promoting his movie "The Social Network" on Jimmy Fallon's show Wednesday night, the guys got together with Fallon's house band the Roots and performed a medley representing the history of rap.
Watch the video above to see what happens when boy band meets hip-hop.
In case you didn't recognize them all -- some references go by in a flash -- the Wall Street Journal did: "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugar Hill Gang, "Peter Piper" by Run-DMC, "Paul Revere" by the Beastie Boys, "Award Tour" by A Tribe Called Quest, "Humpty Dance" by Digital Underground,
(Now, there's some debate over whether Jay-Z's "Dream" actually appears or is a duplicate of the "Juicy" lyric -- we at MOG think it's all "Juicy," but your mileage may vary.)
As Gold Derby noted, Fallon edged out Timberlake for that gig hosting the Emmy Awards -- but who's the winner here?
