Can Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake Make Soulja Boy Tolerable?
I despise Jimmy Fallon. I hated him on Saturday Night Live, I hated him when they moved him to doing Weekend Update, I hate him on his stupid late night bullshit show. However, even I can recognize genius when I see it. This rap duet with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake and the Roots is the work of awesomeness and must be celebrated (international viewers, try it here if this embed doesn’t work).
There is a short bit towards the end where they sneak in that goddamn Soulja Boy Superman bullshit. And while I think their cover is superior in every single way to Soulja “Bitch I Look Like Goku, Except I Don’t At All” Boy’s version, it is still an ugly pock mark on an otherwise glorious tour through rap’s history.
