Justin Timberlake + Jimmy Fallon Bring Another Installment of ‘The History of Rap’ to ‘Tonight Show’ [VIDEO]

Awwww, yeah! Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon celebrated ‘The History of Rap’ on JT’s first visit to the new-look, Fallon-hosted ‘The Tonight Show’ on Feb 21.

For the fifth installment of their recurring skit, the pair ripped through LL Cool J’s ‘I’m Bad,’ Tone Loc’s ‘Wild Thing, the En Vogue x Salt-n-Pepa mashup ‘What a Man’ and NWA’s ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ among others, like Kris Kross’ ‘Jump’ and the Hova’s ’99 Problems.’

Looking dapper and debonair in suits, J and J brought it. This edition of ‘The History of Rap’ was all we dreamed and hoped it would be, and it demonstrated the chemistry that defines this bromance.
