​​Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon's have a lesson for late-night TV viewers: the history of rap. When Timberlake was on Fallon's show to promote The Social Network, the two got to reminiscing about hip-hop tunes from the last thirty years. Of course, since Timberlake's there, the duo broke into a medley that included Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight," Beastie Boys' "Paul Revere," Dr. Dre's "Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang," Digital Underground's "The Humpty Dance," Eminem's "My Name Is," Kanye West's "Gold Digger," and Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind."

The best part of this video? The way that Timberlake and Fallon nail Missy Elliott's backwards chorus on "Work It."
