When you’re looking to learn the History of Rap, we all know there are only two names in the business who can teach such a lesson — Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon, right? Okay, so maybe the late night TV host and his Oscar-snubbed buddy aren’t the first two to come to mind when we think of hip hop legends, but in their third “History Of Rap” segment (backed again by The Roots), the duo takes on OutKast, Ice Cube, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, and — oh my god, Becky! — Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” (along with plenty of others). Watch “Part 3,” see the full list of 18 historical rap ditties, and — oh yeah, doesn’t JT have a new movie to promote, too? Catch it all below!
