By now it’s old news that popular chat show host Jimmy Fallon has taken over The Tonight Show hosting job from Jay Leno! But no doubt viewers are still buzzing from the antics served up on his debut show, which aired last week featuring A-List actor Will Smith, as a guest, who as well as giving an interview joined Jimmy for a wholly entertaining ‘evolution of hip hop dance’ journey.

Jimmy more than held his own against the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air as they performed dances such as The Humpty Dance, The Running Man, The Wop, Twerking and the ‘Carlton Dance’. Hilarious stuff!

snoop-doggystyleDoggystyle was the second hip hop album I ever bought… Okay maybe it was the fourth, as I recall I bought DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince’s  Homebase (you know the one with Summertime on it?) when I was 14, and I might have bought Marky Mark’s Music For The People before that (whaddya mean, that’s not a hip hop album? Sure it is! And a pretty damn good one!), and then Dr Dre’s The Chronic was the third… But  regardless next to The Chronic, Doggystyle was my first ‘grown-up’ hip hop album, as it came under the ‘gangsta rap’ umbrella. I remember anticipating it for months before it actually dropped. This is because I had already fallen in love with The Chronic, which showcased the talented young rapper called Snoop Doggy Dogg, or Calvin Broadus as his mama named him.
