Rapping with Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon (video)

Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Fallon and guest Justin Timberlake performed an "impromptu" three-minute ode to or history of hip hop/rap music, starting with the Sugarhill Gang's classic "Rapper's Delight" from 1979 and ending with Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind." And I think it's fair to say that this video clip provides yet more proof why white boys should not be allowed to perform hip hop or rap music, at least not on live national TV (though the bit was pretty funny, albeit probably not to The Roots, Fallon's hip hop backup band).

I love you Justin and Jimmy, but you, sirs, are no Sugarhill Gang.

Okay, they make look a little nerdy but I think you are being too hard on them. That was awesome and all i can say is "go white boy, go white boy, go!"

I always thought white bread performers look silly trying to be "bad".
