Seems that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake can do no wrong. What better way to close out the first week of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon than with such an iconic guest. They could barely even contain their excitement about what was to come -- at first, they just sat there awkwardly looking at each other, then grabbed some conveniently hidden microphones and launched into "History of Rap 5." Yes, they've done this four times before already.
They rap everything from LL Cool J to Salt 'n' Pepa to the Fresh Prince theme song, including some modern day hits like Kendrick Lamar's "Swimming Pools (Drank)" and a mash-up of Jay Z's "99 Problems." They finished off the amazing routine by jumping into the audience and belting out RUN DMC and Aerosmith's "Walk This Way."
You need to watch this:
Hilarious stuff, right? Don't think Jimmy could have ended his first week on a higher note. No wonder they keep doing "History of Rap" over and over again, it's so damn funny.
These two seriously have such great chemistry. Justin also spoke of how he tried to take some Mucinex to battle a recent illness that made headlines and caused him to postpone his New York concert. He also does a pretty spot on impression of Jimmy, repeating phrases like "so good" and "my man."
Justin then finished up by grabbing a guitar and singing "Not a Bad Thing." It was a pretty fantastic way to start off the weekend. Looks like Jimmy is going to really own The Tonight Show in his talented, charismatic, charmingly funny ways. Kudos, Jimmy!
