Not everybody could do this but they did it. Big Up to Jimmy and Justin with The Roots,, cause they rocked the oldschool history of HipHop. I must admit it was nice hearing all those artists and those tunes again. Old School is Always Cool.

Fallon, Timberlake's hip-hop clip a viral hit
October 4, 2010 - 11:57AM
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake are the hottest duo in hip-hop — for the moment.
They performed a medley of rap hits on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last week, and the clip is becoming a viral hit.
Fallon and Timberlake started off with Sugarhill Gang's classic Rapper's Delight and then performed jams from artists including the Beastie Boys, the Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z and Eminem.
Fallon, 36, said he's surprised by the success of the skit.
"We never know what's going to viral or get picked up, and this one's beyond what we thought it would do," he said.
Though the clip looks all fun, he said, he took the time to get it right before taking the stage.
"You know I really needed to practice. You know I can't rap," said Fallon, who also performed songs by Missy Elliott, Tupac, Kanye West and Snoop Dogg. "I was in my apartment till two in the morning the night before doing (the) Soulja Boy (dance) and my wife was like, 'You're crazy!'"
Though Fallon needed to rehearse, he said, Timberlake was obviously a natural: "(He) knew all of his parts, all his rhythm was amazing, so much better than mine. Mine was so bad, my gosh, (I thought), 'I'm going to screw this up,'" Fallon said.
The performance was backed by the house band for the NBC show, the Grammy-winning hip-hop group The Roots. Fallon said that much of the success goes to the rap band and that the skit was a homage to today's generation.
