Sometimes it’s hard to believe a comedian like Jimmy Fallon is so in tune with true Hip Hop music. In a special performance not seen on air, Grandmaster Melle Mel warmed up the crowd at Rockefeller Center. Off the air on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the legendary MC joined The  Roots to perform the classic record “The Message.” For you young bucks out there Puff Daddy and Mase did not originate the song on “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down”. Check out the jam session here:

Here’s a younger Melle Mel in action below with the rest of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. Class is in session.
