Playback: History Of Rap

10/26/2013 4:39:22 PM

Hey, wait a second. Let’s clear this for a while, folks (yes… before you complain about my content): We are not talking about music and history here yet, huh?

Damn it. I am not fan of Jimmy Fallon (I don’t even have a clear reception of channels 21 and 29 – which is Solar News Channel and 2nd avenue, respectively – to watch any foreign late night shows). And being an avid J.T. listener brought me here… in these 4 segments in an 18-minuter flick. By the way, forgive me for being a late-bloomer in terms of having such fascinations to several mainstream shits – like this.

Honestly speaking, I have no idea that they actually do this shit at all. I have yet to do my research for this, ‘cause all I only know is that these two (yes, that TV talk show host Jimmy Fallon and N SYNC-starred member Justin Timberlake) are good friends – BFF or Best Friends Forever, according to some news reports in the world wide web. Besides… screw it, I only knew this tandem when they showcased that #Hashtag video on where else but on that premier (and Google-owned) video-streaming site.

Well, after some minutes of Googling everything about this shit, according to several articles from SPIN magazine, History of Rap was first aired some time in 2010. There are talks though that J.T.’s open to create its “part 5,” that’s according to RapFix, one of’s sections.

History of Rap as it seems, eh? Though not the typical educating manner (and I don’t think they aim for that at all). And I think they name that segment as such, because they performed those rap music dating back from yesterday to the present era. As in it’s like a “generation to generation” mash-up. Well, not bad – it’s all for the ages anyway.

At least, if there’s something I can really appreciate at this point of time in Hollywood, it's the… well, there I have it – that rapping mash-up and medley segment from that Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show. Though I have to admit, I liked their third part the most. I wish they make more segments like this, rather than those pieces of crap which really ruin the hip-hop's real art form (well, if you know what I mean).

Thanks to YouTube for that random browsing moment anyway. That made my Saturday. I’d like to lop this heavyweight shit all night long… well, tonight! Just to satisfy my cravings.

Anyway, in case you have watched the featured video, and you have no idea on what music did they perform, here’s something to help you educate yourself. Yes, the entire list of songs performed by Jimmy and J.T. on all 4 parts of History of Rap.
