I hate Jimmy Fallon. I hate his stand-ups. I hate his SNL sketches. I hate his late night show. If you haven’t guessed by now, I really don’t like that guy. He’s just not funny and I find Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to be blander than the instant oatmeal my roommate eats every morning. I watched its premier because I wanted to see The Roots and I haven’t watched an episode since. That is until, a certain clip entitled “The History of Rap: Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake, and The Roots” started making e-rounds and I decided to check it out.
Now while Fallon did impress me, it was Justin Timberlake that really stole the show. He’s just such a versatile musician and makes quality music in so many different ways. We all know Justin can be the lead singer, can drop a solid hook or two and he can do a quick bridge or a guest verse. The list goes on and on. Well apparently, he can be a rapper too.
Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time I can honestly say that in this sketch of Hip-Hop’s history, Jimmy Fallon did not disappoint.
P.S. The Roots are one hell of a back-up band aren’t they?
