WATCH: Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon – “History of Rap Pt. 4”; Timberlake Medley


For the entirety of the week, pop icon Justin Timberlake has been appearing on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon program.

Each night, he has performed two new songs from his upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience, and taken part in one of the show’s sketches. These have included a barber shop quartet version of his hit “Sexyback,” a Canadian soap opera pilot featuring Steve Carell, and a summer camp set tribute to Toto’s “Africa.”

Wrapping up Timberweek, Fallon and Timberlake took it upon themselves to perform the fourth installment of their “History of Rap” medley series. Spanning from Sugar Hill Gang to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, they worked their way through the ages of hip-hop with the assistance of the Roots. (list of songs below)

The show ended with a huge performance of Justin Timberlake doing a second medley. This time, however, it was comprised of his own hits (with a few filler tracks in between).
