Ladies and gentlemen, gee up for the SIXTH INSTALMENT in the massive effort that is Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake’s History of Rap. Both entertainers showcase their musical and comedic chops in a collaboration that’s just as good as their other five in a romp through iconic hip-hop tunes ranging from the classic – LL Cool J’s Rock the Bells and Salt-N-Pepa’s Let’s Talk About Sex – to newer (although no less fresh) tracks like Know Yourself by Drake and I Don’t Fuck With You by Big Sean.
More highlights include Fallon spitting out Busta Rhymes’ verse on Look at Me Now like it ain’t no thing (we’re sure it actually was, very much, a thing – just listen to the verse yourself) and a very apt reference to Straight Outta Compton before promptly stopped by an appalled Timberlake. But the highlight of the bromance-fest is probably the segment from 3:20 to 4:20, covering an energetic Ignition (Remix) and Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (with Fallon doing a very on-point impression of Kendrick’s permanently stoned expression).
Have a listen for yourself below in anticipation for an inevitable History of Rap 7. Meanwhile, Fallon and Timberlake’s bromance continues, the pair having been spotted at the US Open, shimmying to Beyonce’s Single Ladies.
