It’s viral. And it hasn’t been out for 24 hours yet, so I don’t think we’ve completely entered the, “Dude, I’ve already seen that, like, 33 times” phase. Plus, it’s bad-ass. Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon here to perform the History of Rap. Pulls up your skirts. Raise the roof. Flash your gangster signs, y’all. This is a goddamn crowd pleaser.

I know there’s still plenty of you out there stubbornly resisting the gullible charms of Jimmy Fallon, but you have to give him this: No one on late-night television puts more effort into his bits than does Fallon. I love Dave to death, but he’s still rolling out Will It Float, while Leno is trudging out those motherfucking “Headlines.” Fallon dares to do something different every once in a while, and I appreciate that about him.
