Fallon Timberlake History Rap 6 Tonight Show


Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon performed the sixth installment of their music bit “History of Rap” on Wednesday’s “Tonight Show.” Watch the video here!

As Gossip Cop has reported, Fallon and Timberlake’s recurring bit has the talk show host and singer performing a medley of hip-hop classics. The duo performed a similar bit at the “Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary” special in February, opening the show with a musical number that recounted the “History of SNL.”

Timberlake and the talk show host have been doing their “History of Rap” duets ever since 2011 on Fallon’s old “Late Night” program. As they’ve done in the past, The Roots accompanied Timberlake and Fallon, who once again concluded their performance by running into the studio audience.

For the sixth entry in the popular series, Timberlake and Fallon covered artists including LL Cool J, MC Hammer, Public Enemy, Salt-N-Pepa, Wu-Tang Clan, Beastie Boys, The Notorious B.I.G., and many more! Fallon attempted to also cover N.W.A.’s “Straight Outta Compton,” but Timberlake stopped him before he could get going. “We went through this before,” Timberlake said. “You are not straight outta Compton, you are straight outta upstate New York.”
