Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon need to take this act on the road. The talented actor, singer and dancer performed an impromptu rap melody last night with the beloved late night talk show host, throwing it down with the legendary Roots crew. If you didn’t think JT was a renaissance man/pop culture icon before, his performance on Late Night definitely solidified his lofty status in the industry.
JT stopped by Late Night to promote his latest flick The Social Network.
“This is the best seat in the house for a great concert every night. You have The Roots here,” Justin gushed. “Hip Hop legends.”
The stars busted into a melody, rapping classics from Sugarhill Gang‘s “Rapper’s Delight” to Jay-Z‘s “Empire State of Mind,” and everything in between (Snoop Dogg, Notorious B.I.G., Rihanna, Missy Elliot, Eminmen)
Jimmy even attempted to “crank that’ like Soulja Boy!
