Jimmy Fallon couldn’t go his first week on The Tonight Show without the love of his bro-life, Justin Timberlake. While there is no novelty left in their ‘Evolution of Rap” series, both the enthusiasm, the infectiousness, and the remarkable performances remain. I still don’t understand how they put these together with such a short turnaround, but the series never fails to impress and delight.

Here’s the rundown:

LL Cool J, “I’m Bad”

Run DMC, “Beats to the Rhyme”

Crazy Calls, “Wait for the Beep”

Beastie Boys, “Fight For Your Right”

Tone Loc, “Wild Thing”

DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, “Fresh Prince Theme”

Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Dogg, “Dre Day”

Warren G feat. Nate Dogg, “Regulate”

N.W.A., “Straight Outta Compton”
