It happened again: Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon have thrown down another hip-hop medley on Fallon's show Late Night, backed up by The Roots. It's just as fun as the previous two, with a nice bit in the middle regarding whether Fallon has, or has need of, an AK.

Although I haven't verified it in depth, this seems to be the track list -- point out any I've missed!

"King of Rock" - Run DMC "Mama Said Knock You Out" - LL Cool J "Parents Just Don't Understand" - DJ Jazzy Jeff? & the Fresh Prince "Me, Myself, & I" - De La Soul "Supersonic" - JJ Fad "Baby Got Back" - Sir Mix-a-Lot "Bust a Move" - Young MC "Jump Around" - House of Pain "It Was a Good Day" - Ice Cube "Gangsta's Paradise" - Coolio "Killing Me Softly" - Fugees "Sabotage" - Beastie Boys "I Just Wanna Love U" - Jay Z "Ms. Jackson" - OutKast "Drop It Like It's Hot" - Snoop Dogg "Stronger" - Kanye West "Super Bass" - Nicki Minaj "Hip Hop Hooray" - Naughty By Nature

For previous installments: Part 1 and Part 2. Note that NBC apparently blocks its own content in its own video player (!) after a while; you may be better off finding pirated versions of the older videos using Google.
