WATCH: Justin Timberlake Blends “Bandz A Make Her Dance” and “N****s In Paris” into “Cry Me A River”

Justin Timberlake’s love for hip hop has been widely publicized since his days with *NSYNC, but last night Justin reminded us of that love by blending two mega-hits into one of his biggest singles.

Following his GRAMMY performance last night, Justin Timberlake took his live show across town to the Hollywood Palladium for a show that by all accounts brought down the house. During his performance, Justin debuted a new version of his hit “Cry Me A River” that featured the pop crooner and his band adding chunks of Juicy J’s “Bandz A Make Her Dance” and the Jay-Z/Kanye’s “Niggas …

WATCH: Jay-Z & Kanye West Perform “N*ggas In Pris” NINE TIMES In L.A.

Jay-Z & Kanye West’s Fall tour has been nothing short of a spectacle and last night things got wilder than ever when the show finally rolled through Los Angeles.

We get it, “N*ggas In Paris” is a dope song. Hell, it is the best song on Watch The Throne, but …
