Fallon and The Office star John Krasinski did a bit on Late Night where the two challenged each other to a lip-synch off and “performed” “They Want EFX,” “Peter Piper” and some Boyz II Men. Definitely not as great as The History of Hip-Hop, but not bad at all.

The leader of the United States joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on their late-night show to speak on student loans and making college cheaper… in their own unique way, of course.
Too much coverage of The Roots lately? Nope. These guys deserve all the recognition they get for the countless albums and great moments in hip hop they’ve been apart of. And with the help of Bilal, the crew perform a few choice cuts off their new album undun. Up top, they Tip the Scale (w/ a little Redford Suite). Down bottom, The Otherside.
To help promote the release of The Roots’ new album, Jimmy Fallon reveals his (unused) contribution.

The most hip-hop friendly children’s television show takes its talents to the house of Jimmy Fallon, and recruits a few of their friends for one puppet-friendly jam session. *dead* at Bootsy Collins and Erykah kicking at the start.
Ever since MTV all but stopped playing music videos, I’ve spent more time watching marathons of Martin on MTV2 (good job, guys) than anything. I caught an episode of “Silent Library,” and while it made me chuckle it also reminded me of what MTV isn’t anymore. Regardless The Roots and Jimmy Fallon are set to make an appearance on the… game show(?).
At this point the only thing keeping Jimmy Fallon’s show afloat is The Roots, so why not
milk them for all they’re worth utilize them as much as possible?
Backed by the legendary Roots crew, Ricky performs his Teflon Don street single live on Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon. Does anyone else secretly wish Black Thought would add a verse to every guest’s song? Anyways, rehearsal footage can be seen after the jump.
