JT & Jimmy Fallon “History of Rap 5”

Last night, Justin Timberlake took a pause on tour to join Jimmy Fallon‘s Tonight Show premiere week and naturally, the pair resumed their “History of Rap” series, running through a flurry of nostalgic hits with The Roots above. I enjoyed this one from beginning to end with some highlights being the West Coast throwbacks, the big Drake & Kendrick Lamar singles from 2013, and the 99 Problems/Move Bitch back and forth. Good stuff, per usual.

Down below, JT was also the official musical guest as he ran through “Not A Bad Thing”.

Jhene Aiko “The Worst” LIVE on Fallon

To close out the week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jhene Aiko performed one of the most gripping tracks on her newΒ Sail Out EP: “The Worst”. Accompanied by The Roots, Jhene was able to display her infectious and unique delivery in a live, intimate setting. The song, her performance, and the setting all combined to bring up “The Worst” to another level for me. Great looks for the fast-rising Aiko, who I think will be a household name by the end of the year (she is, but she isn’t ya know?)
