Actor and singer Justin Timberlake and talk show host Jimmy Fallon offered up a "History of Rap" during the ''Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'' show on September 29, 2010. Timberlake appeared on Fallon's late-night television show to promote his new movie, ''The Social Network.'' During his segment, Timberlake and Fallon began discussing hip-hop music (prompted by Timberlake's mention of Fallon's house band, the hip-hop group The Roots). The two began talking about the classic rap group the Sugar Hill Gang.

As The Roots began playing the Sugar Hill Gang's song "Rapper's Delight," Timberlake and Fallon grabbed microphones, walked over to the stage and began rapping the song. Timberlake and Fallon went on to perform a medley of rap songs from the past three decades, including RUN DMC's "Peter Piper," the Beastie Boys' "Paul Revere" and "The Humpty Dance" by Digital Underground. After performing these 1980s rap songs, Timberlake and Fallon launched into Dr. Dre's 1993 hit "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang," which featured Snoop Dogg. The two then performed a snippet from Tupac Shakur's 1995 rap song "California Love." Other songs included in the History of Rap medley included The Roots' "The Seed," Eminem's "My Name Is" and Missy Elliot's "Work It."

Timberlake and Fallon began dancing as they began performing several contemporary rap songs, including Kanye West's "Gold Digger," "Live Your Life" by T.I. and Soulja Boy's "Crank That." The pair then went out into the studio audience to perform Jay Z's song "Empire State of Mind" for their grand finale. Audience members stood up and began dancing and rapping along.

All total, Timberlake and Fallon managed to cover three decades of the History of Rap in about four minutes.
