video: a history of rap
I don’t watch late night shows, but this is making the rounds this morning and it is pretty cute. A History of Rap by Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake & The Roots*
Impressive and fun, but I couldn’t help but be reminded of my innocent** youth in the Atlanta suburbs: two white guys expressing their love for hip-hop and eventually panning to a 99% white audience dancing… badly. Yeah, it’s late 80s/early 90s high school dances all over again. I’m pretty sure they were careful to warn Fallon and Timberlake against succumbing to the white man’s overbite during the routine.***
* Sorry about the ad(s), can’t be helped.
** Yeah, right.
*** Still, it didn’t take.
