Jimmy and Justin perform 30 years of hip-hop on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'

MANILA, Philippines – Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake, and The Roots gave us our annual hip-hop history lesson on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

In the September 9 episode, the two opened the show with classics spanning 30 years of hip-hop, including LL Cool J’s “Rock the Bells” and Kendrick Lamar’s “B-tch Don’t Kill My Vibe.”

Jimmy even gives NWA’s “Straight Outta Compton” a start, before Justin stops him: “Jimmy, we’ve been through this before. You are not straight outta Compton. You are straight outta upstate New York!”

Justin and Jimmy have been doing “History of Rap” since Justin first guested on the show in 2010. They perform when Justin visits the show every year, even though Jimmy swore in 2013 that the 4th installment would be the last. 

Aside from performing “History of Rap,” Justin also judged a lip sync battle between Jimmy and comedian Ellen Degeneres and showed Jimmy some pictures of his son, Silas. ([WATCH] Lip sync battle: Ellen DeGeneres vs Jimmy Fallon)
