Last September, Justin Timberlake appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and blew all our minds with a hip-hop medley. Timberlake appeared on Fallon again last night and gave the crowd what they wanted: a sequel.

Timberlake and Fallon, backed by the Roots, go through a five-minute medley of 20 rap classics, hamming it up with some choreographed dance steps. From Salt N’ Pepa to 50 Cent, no artist is safe from incorporation. It’s a joy to watch, second only to Fallon’s musical impersonations. And don’t worry – you will learn how to dougie.

Watch the video, download the MP3, and check out all the songs covered below.

  1. It’s fun, but they forgot to rap. All they did was the popular choruses. What I liked about the first one is that they both were able to spit the rhymes.

  2. Thank you for the list! I’ve heard “let me clear my throat” plenty of times but never knew who it was by or the actual song title, but once I heard it in the video, I had to download. A quick google search brought me here, Thank you!
