Justin Timberlake Joins Jimmy Fallon for “The History of Rap 5” on “The Tonight Show”

After Fallon introduced JT, the two looked at each other for a few seconds, and then each of them picked up a microphone. The audience went nuts as the two men took center stage and kicked into “I’m Bad” by LL Cool J.  They then proceeded to run through more than 20 other rap hits, from novelties like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song, to classics like N.W.A.’s “Straight Outta Compton,” to forgotten favorites like Positive K’s “I Got a Man,” to current hits like Drake’s “Started from the Bottom.”

At the end of the performance, Justin and a visibly-exhausted Fallon ran up into the audience, finishing with Run DMC’s “Walk This Way.”

Later in the show, Justin, who taped his appearance before heading to Madison Square Garden for a concert, performed his song “Not a Bad Thing” from his album The 20/20 Experience — 2 of 2.
